Did Markelle Fultz have his best game as a Sixer?

It was a big night for him as well as Ben Simmons. Simmons was one assist shy of a triple-double with 21 points, 12 rebounds, and nine assists in a 113-92 win over the Atlanta Hawks.

But Fultz, who finished with 16 points and seven rebounds, had some really nice plays last night:

Plus, he was starting to take shots and not pass on open chances:

Granted it was the Hawks, but Fultz has shown some improvement since last year. It might be small, but he definitely look a big step in the right direction last night. We’ll see how he does tonight.

The team has their second game of a back-to-back up in Toronto as they’ll visit Kawhi Leonard and the Raptors. Tip-off is at 7:30 PM on NBC Sports Philadelphia +.

Off the court, the team has picked up the options on Simmons, Fultz, and Dario Saric.

We also might have seen the team’s new City edition jerseys:

The Roundup:


The Eagles are back in the United States after beating the Jaguars 24-18 in London. Doug Pederson had his day-after press conference, but also mentioned there’s a possibility the Eagles make a trade before today’s 4 PM deadline.

Speaking of the deadline, could Nick Foles be moved today?


The Flyers are out west to take on the Ducks tonight at 10 PM on NBC Sports Philadelphia. They’re gonna hope they get something going against one of the better teams in the west. Nic Aube-Kubel will make his NHL debut as well.


The Phillies are the betting favorites to land both Bryce Harper and Manny Machado. Alrighty then.

Harper’s also reportedly not in the Yankee’s plans.


In other sports news, Klay Thompson had an NBA-record 14 threes and finished with 52 points in a 149-124 win over the Bulls.

The NHL is going all-in on sports betting.
