None other than the first overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, Markelle Fultz.

He's averaging 16.0 points, 8.1 rebounds, 8.2 assists and 1.7 steals this season. Redick sidelined with injuries, Fultz received a career-high 25 minutes of action and rewarded the team's confidence by delivering his first triple-double as a pro with 13 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists while coming off the bench.

Fultz's clinched the triple-double by grabbing his 10th rebound late in the game.

The moment was not lost on his teammates, who mobbed the rookie as fans rose to their feet and doused him with water after the game. McConnell has seen his playing time reduced by Fultz's return from a shoulder injury. "I think it's snapshot into who these guys are. Hopefully, it gets approved and I get to play in it". "There's a human side to that reaction that is special".

Game 1 of the best-of-seven series with the Heat will probably be played Saturday at Wells Fargo Center. It is longest single-season win streak in Sixers history.

It's encouraging for Fultz and just another reason for the 76ers to feel great going into the playoffs, where they have clinched the Eastern Conference's No. 3 seed ahead of the Cleveland Cavaliers and will face the Miami Heat in the first round. "It's going to be fun".


They're a physical team. "They have some shooters and experienced players". But I feel the inheritance of bringing Joel back to what we are doing, and figuring out that juggling act, is something I look forward to.

The Sixers showed those pieces Wednesday night. Still, Philadelphia led Milwaukee 80-44 at halftime.

Dario Saric, who left a game early in Atlanta Monday with a chipped tooth and lacerated lip, recovered quickly to provide 24 points and a plus-minus of 27, helping to limit Giannis Antetokounmpo to 10 points.

Obviously Simmons isn't going to sit there and say he doesn't deserve the award and it has to go to Mitchell, but this is still a rather firm statement by the Sixers' rookie. "There's a lot of accolades I want to get, but I ultimately want to win a ring". "I'm so happy for (Markelle) and the way he's come back and played".

"It's unbelievable", Fultz said.

"If (they) have a shirt made of this dunk already then your the (goat emoji)", added Mitchell, who played his sophomore season at Louisville while Simmons was immersed in an National Basketball Association culture previous year. They've been there like that the whole year.
