Sixers rookie Markelle Fultz debuted last night in the 76ers 120-115 opening night loss to the Wizards. There were times when he shined for the Philly squad and there were other times when he struggled. He scored 10 points, grabbed three rebounds, had one assist.
Fultz did a nice job of moving in the paint to get open for scores on layups. He also made some nice passes to set up Joel Embiid for a score or two in the paint. Fultz pulled down two offensive rebounds and one on the defensive side. The youngster definitely has the ability to finish by the rim.
The youngster was 5 for 9 shooting and most of his shots were from inside. He’s got to improve his free throw shooting which is hampered because of his injured shoulder. He shot 0 for 2 from the line.
