Tacko Fall, Aaron Gordon, Celtics, Magic

Boston Celtics rookie big man Tacko Fall says his dunk with Orlando Magic power forward Aaron Gordon in the 2020 Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday in Chicago wasn’t planned.

Tacko says he was scared to death:

Surprisingly, Aaron Gordon didn’t get a 50 for this dunk and wound up losing to Miami Heat high-flyer Derrick Jones Jr.

Tacko Fall is listed at 7 foot 5. The fact that Gordon was able to dunk over him without using his shoulder to bounce up is really impressive.

Fall has become a folk hero in Boston despite only playing in six games with the Celtics this season. He’s averaging 3.2 points and 1.8 rebounds while shooting 75.0 percent from the free-throw line.
