How Tacko Fall, Tremont Waters fared in Red Claws win over Raptors 905

The Maine Red Claws improved to 3-0 on the season Sunday with a 129-115  victory over the Raptors 905.

Tacko Fall and Tremont Waters were the Boston Celtics rookies in the spotlight with No. 14 overall draft pick Romeo Langford out due to a right ankle sprain suffered in Friday night's home opener.

Here's how they performed in the win:

TACKO FALL

Tacko just continues to impress. The 7-foot-5 phenom was a perfect 9-for-9 from the field for a total of 21 points to go along with five rebounds and two blocks. 

TREMONT WATERS

It was a quieter day for Waters as he tallied only eight points on 3-for-10 shooting, but the second-rounder did notch a game-high 11 assists. Waters also drilled a clutch fourth-quarter three for the second straight game.

Other standouts for the Red Claws included Kaiser Gates (26 points, five rebounds), Jaysean Paige (17 points, eight assists, six rebounds), Yante Maten (17 points, five rebounds), and Bryce Brown (20 points, five rebounds).

Next, the Red Claws will visit the Raptors 905 on Wednesday for a rematch at 7 p.m.

The Maine Red Claws' first game in Portland for 2019 went swimmingly as they prevailed over the Fort Wayne Mad Ants on Friday night, 103-100.

The victory brings the Red Claws to 2-0 to begin their season.

Boston Celtics rookies Tacko Fall, Tremont Waters, and Romeo Langford each had very different nights. Here's how they performed in the home opener:

TACKO FALL

Fall was the star in this one as he already had a double-double on the stat sheet before halftime. The 7-foot-5 sensation's final line was impressive as he notched 16 points (7-for-10) with 13 rebounds and six blocks.

Tacko continues to show promise as he also was great in the Red Claws' season opener on Saturday.

ROMEO LANGFORD

Langford's night was cut short as he went down with a right ankle injury in the second quarter and was ruled out for the rest of the game.

The Celtics' No. 14 overall pick in this year's draft was held scoreless (0-for-2) in seven minutes prior to the injury.

TREMONT WATERS

Waters struggled from 3-point range, going only 1-for-8 from beyond the arc after being red-hot (7-of-11) in Saturday's season opener. The C's second-rounder finished with 17 points and seven assists, and he made his mark with a clutch shot late in the fourth quarter.

Also putting up numbers for the Red Claws were Bryce Brown (16 points, eight rebounds) and Yante Maten (22 points, 10 rebounds).

Next up for the Red Claws is another home game vs. the Raptors 905 on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. ET. You can catch it right here on NBC Sports Boston.
