Mike Breen Called Tacko Fall, 'Taco Bell,' During Celtics - Knicks Broadcast on MSG Network

Mike Breen was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame on Saturday. On Sunday he called the Boton Celtics - New York Knicks game at Maidson Square Garden. Since the Celtics sat their top seven players, there was plenty of time for Tacko Fall who saw his most minutes since January. During the third quarter Fall ended up with the ball and Breen called him "Taco Bell."

Tacko Fall Couldn’t Help But Laugh At Mike Breen Accidentally Calling Him ‘Taco Bell’

It has been a long season for everyone in the NBA, as the crazy, condensed regular season came to an end on Sunday. For Mike Breen, who pulls double duty on Knicks broadcasts for MSG and as the lead play-by-play man for ESPN’s NBA coverage, he’s called a lot of games in not a lot of days, and it’s understandable that at some point a slip-up might happen.

Tacko Fall deserves a larger role than last big man on the depth chart

As someone who has written repeatedly about the new NBA, the modern NBA, the stretch big NBA, and the 3-point dominant era NBA, you don't have to tell me that Tacko Fall doesn't have the ideal skillset for today's game. With that said, if I'm saying Tacko deserves a legit role, it's not coming from some ignorance about the modern game. And I am saying that Tacko Fall deserves a bigger role than just the end of the bench guy that fans love to see come in during a blow out.

Every Day is Tacko Tuesday for Celtics Big Man Tacko Fall

During his adolescence, Boston Celtics big man Tacko Fall would consume up to 7,000 calories a day. According to reports from his prep days in Florida, he was eating whole pizzas covered in chicken and hamburger patties to keep weight on a frame that would stretch to 7’7”. The strength...

Tacko Fall returns to Orlando in Celtics dominant win over Magic

The Boston Celtics dominated the Orlando Magic 132-96 at Amway Center on Wednesday, and former UCF center Tacko Fall added a clip to the highlight reel late in the game. The Magic came into Wednesday night’s game with the return of head coach Steve Clifford, who missed the previous six games due to testing positive for COVID-19. The team went 3-3 in his absence while under assistant coach Tyrone Corbin.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Five straight DNPs

Fall is averaging 6.0 minutes, 1.7 points, 2.7 rebounds and 0.7 blocks in three games played in the month of April. Fall has only played in three games and attempted two shots since March 27. The Celtics acquired two centers -- Luke Kornet and Moritz Wagner -- at the trade deadline and both appear to be firmly ahead of Fall on the depth chart. The Celtics starting center, Robert Williams, missed Thursday's game with a knee injury, and Fall still recorded his fifth straight DNP.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Three appearances in March

Fall is averaging 6.8 minutes, 3.0 points, 1.0 rebounds, 0.5 assists and 0.5 blocks in four games played since the All-Star break. Fall has only eclipsed double-digit minutes in one game this year (Jan. 15 vs. Magic). However, the 25-year-old has at least gotten more run during the few times he's seen the court, as he's averaged almost double the amount of minutes in his sophomore season (7.6) than he did during his rookie year (4.7). The seven-footer has shot 70 percent from the field during his career, but his abysmal free-throw shooting (30 percent) makes him an offensive liability.

Avdija on almost dunking over Tacko Fall: 'I wanted it so bad'

The Wizards were flowing with confidence during their Valentine's Day victory over the Boston Celtics, putting on one of their best performances of the season. No play epitomized that confidence more than Deni Avdija's brazen attempt to put the Celtics 7-foot-5 center Tacko Fall on a poster in the fourth quarter of the win.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Doesn't play Tuesday

Fall didn't take the court in Tuesday's win over Denver. The center was a DNP-coach's decision for a 10th time over the past 12 games. His two appearances during that span came Feb. 11 versus Toronto and Feb. 14 against the Wizards. Fall recorded a total of seven points and six rebounds across seven minutes in those two outings.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Clear of injury report

Fall (ankle) isn't listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game at Philadelphia. The 25-year-old is available for Wednesday's contest after the one-game absence due to a left ankle sprain. Tristan Thompson and Robert Williams have both cleared the COVID-19 protocols, so Fall should revert to his reserve role at center for the Celtics.

Celtics' Tacko Fall: Unavailable Sunday

Fall (ankle) won't play Sunday against the Knicks. The 25-year-old was listed as questionable with a left ankle sprain and won't be active for Sunday's contest. Fall likely would have filled a reserve role off the bench, and his next chance to take the court will be Wednesday at Philadelphia.

Watch: Bradley Beal tries to dunk on Tacko Fall, fails miserably

Washington Wizards star Bradley Beal learned a valuable lesson during his team’s 116-107 defeat at the hands of the Boston Celtics on Friday night. With three minutes remaining in the third quarter of the outing, Beal got the ball and drove it to the basket — hard. Because of how skilled he is offensively, the 27-year-old likely figured that nobody would be able to stop him.
