TackoMania will continue in Portland and in Boston.

The Celtics converted 7-foot-7 phenom Tacko Fall to a two-way contract on Sunday, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. This means Fall will spend most of his time with the C's G-League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws, but can spend up to 45 days on Boston's NBA roster.

This news comes on the heels of the C's signing guard Max Strus to a two-year NBA contract on Sunday.

Tacko has quickly become a fan favorite in Boston since joining the team via an Exhibit 10 contract over the summer. C's fans certainly will be pleased to know TackoMania won't be coming to an end any time soon.

The Warriors deployed their ninth lineup of the season Friday night, but if they are as serious about tanking the season as some outside speculation suggests, they are going to have to try a 10th or 11th or 12th. Draymond Green and Eric Paschall were the starting forwards for the first time this season, and even in a 105-100 loss to the rampaging Celtics, performed well enough - as did the team around them - to provide reason to believe the Warriors will find a few more wins if Steve Kerr makes a habit of this. In addition to starting the Green-Paschall duo at forward, Glenn Robinson III -- who started the first 11 games at small forward -- was moved to the backcourt alongside point guard...
