VIDEO: Celtics rookie Tacko Fall boasts unarguably the best face mask in Orlando bubble

Tacko Fall, Celtics

Boston Celtics center Tacko Fall has not been given many opportunities to score in his first postseason, but he gets bonus points for his mask game.

Ahead of Monday’s Game 5, the Celtics center was rocking an electronic, light-up mask featuring an animation of a running Mario from Nintendo’s Super Mario Bros. On Fall’s mask, the pixelated Italian plumber has green skin—a nod to the Celtics.

Here’s a close-up look at Fall’s unique mask. It’s unclear how Fall washes it.

Tacko Fall has put safety first early in the COVID-19 pandemic. In mid-March, a few days after the 2019-20 regular season was put on hold, Fall followed his Celtics teammate Jaysom Tatum and recorded a PSA to encourage people to follow safety measures.

“At times like this, it’s very important not to panic,” the Celtics rookie said. “But that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t take all the precautions necessary to keep this in check.”

Aside from three minutes in Game 4 of the first round, Fall’s only action in the playoffs has come in the final 0.5 seconds of Game 3. The 7-foot-5 big man was inserted into the game for the final play to guard Kyle Lowry’s inbound pass, only to watch the Raptors vet heave the ball over Fall’s head and into the hands of OG Anunoby, who nailed the 3-pointer to give Toronto a 104-103 win.

Fortunately for Fall, Boston has bounced back from their lackluster Game 4 performance with a dominant showing in Game 5. At the end of third quarter, Boston held an 87-63 lead.
