Celtics rookie Tacko Fall sat on the bench for the first three quarters of Sunday's preseason opener at TD Garden against the Charlotte Hornets hearing fans repeatedly chant his name.

But when the 7-foot-7 center finally got a chance to check into an NBA game for the first time early in the fourth quarter, he said feeling any pressure to deliver was the last thing on his mind.

"Pressure?" Fall asked afterward. "I feel like I'm in a dream.

"I'm in the Garden, playing with the Celtics and with all these players. There's no pressure. It's just a matter of going out there and having fun."

Fall and the Celtics did plenty of that in the fourth quarter. The UCF product finished with five points, three rebounds and two blocked shots in eight minutes of action as Boston emerged with a 107-106 victory over Charlotte.
