Tacko Fall is happy he escaped Saturday's Slam Dunk contest unscathed.

"I was scared shitless," the 7-foot-5 Boston Celtics rookie center told John Karalis MassLive.com of assisting Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon on his final attempt.

"I told him, 'Aaron, I trust you. I trust you with my life right now,'" Fall said. "But he did it. He should have won. I think he got robbed."

Gordon scored a 47 on the dunk, giving the Miami Heat's Derrick Jones Jr. his first Slam Dunk contest title. The judging panel apparently planned to have the contest end in a tie, but one judge went rogue.

Gordon said afterward that he believes he should've won and is done with the event for good.
