Video: Tacko Fall long-range bomb has Celtics bench going nuts

Tacko Fall

The rest of the NBA better watch out as Boston Celtics center Tacko Fall can apparently hit three-pointers now. The Celtics bench went bonkers on Friday after witnessing the 7-foot-5 from Senegal bank in what could have been the first long distance bomb of his NBA career.

With under a minute left in garbage time in their blowout win over the Orlando Magic at the TD Garden, the Celtics had the luxury to mess around a bit and gave Fall a green light to shoot a wide-open three-pointer. Magic forward Khem Birch purposedly gave him all the room he needs and Fall made them pay big time.

Fall’s shot hit the glass before rolling inside the hoop, sending his teammate to a frenzy. The entire TD Garden would have likely gone crazy had there been fans on the stands.

Sadly, Fall’s shot was ruled a two-pointer after officials saw his foot on the line.

Fall finished with six points, five rebounds, and one block in their 124-107 victory. He went a pristine 3-of-3 from the floor, including that rare outside shot.

The former UCF standout has been a fan favorite since joining the NBA as an undrafted rookie last season.

His sheer size and affable demeanor endeared him to fans and players alike. Tacko Fall also recently made a case why he deserves to hold a spot with the Celtics.
