As if you needed another kick in the face this morning.

Markelle Fultz had a career-high game yesterday.

Fultz had 19 points against the Wizards. He was 2-3 from beyond the arc and 8-10 from FG.

This season with the Magic, Fultz has been averaging 23 minutes and 10.5 points per game. He is shooting 21.1% from the three-point line (his stroke still looks terrible), but 82.1% from the free throw line.

Roc Nation Sports, Jay-Z’s entertainment and management company, and Fultz’s agency, posted this:

SLAM tweeted this:

Oh yeah, did I mention he sealed the win for the Magic with a dunk?

Trust the process? Maybe he isn’t so bad after all.

What a dreary Monday.
