Tacko Fall and the Red Claws can’t lose right now. Maine extended its winning streak to seven games on Thursday following the 107-103 finish in their matchup against the Salt Lake City Stars (Jazz).

Fall did what he normally does when he’s with Maine: protect the rim and log a double-double. Fall scored 14 points on 6-for-8 shooting. He finished with 10 rebounds — he’s averaging 10.1 per game through 15 games with the Red Claws.

One glaring issue with Fall right now is his free-throw shooting. He went 1-for-2 at the line on Thursday — which actually helped improve his season average. Fall is shooting 48.8% at the line.

Carsen Edwards matched Falls offensive output with a 14-point performance. But the guard struggled from beyond the arc. He went 0-for-6 from deep (6-for-8 from two).
