Last night in the Sixers’ final game of the regular season, Markelle Fultz became the first teenager in NBA history to record a triple-double, scoring 13 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in just 25 minutes.
His teammates knew his stats, and were ecstatic when he grabbbed his 10th rebound of the game. After the game he was being interviewed, and his teamates surprised him with a dousing of water.
The Sixers made history tonight.

It’s been a long climb back for the Sixers rookie, who had mental issues related to his shot. The Sixers tried everything, even Virtual Reality to help correct his YIPS. Happy for this young star, he’s had a rough year, but finished strong. He should be a nice second unit player for the Sixers come playoff time.
