LAS VEGAS — Ouch.
Denver’s Brandon Goodwin made the right play and stepped in front of 7’7″ Tacko Fall in transition, and he drew the charge, but he paid the price for it and had to come out of the game for a while after this blow.
Goodwin would re-enter the game.
Fall has been a fan favorite in Las Vegas — there were two guys dressed as tacos who showed up for Tuesday’s game — and “we want Tacko” chants have been a regular feature of Summer League games. Fall has averaged 7.3 points a game on 77 percent shooting because all his baskets are right at the rim. He’s also altered shots and drives just by his massive presence. He’s got a lot of work to do still to be an NBA player, but he’s been fun to watch.
