  • Nothing wrong with fans encouraging Markelle Fultz

    When Markelle Fultz rose up to take a 13-foot jumper with 9:18 left in the second quarter, the ball seemed to hang on the rim forever. For context, this place was loud when Meek Mill, fresh out of prison, came out to ring the bell before a Sixers' playoff game. The applause for Fultz's first NBA three in the fourth quarter Thursday actually rivaled that.

  • Five observations from Bulls-Sixers: Well, at least the first quarter was good

    Here are five observations from the Bulls' season-opener loss to the Sixers on Thursday night. In what could wind up being the most exciting quarter all year, the Bulls began the year with a 41-point explosion. The Bulls shot 63 percent in the quarter, at one point scoring on an absurd 11 consecutive possessions.

  • Ben Simmons triple-double, Joel Embiid’s 30 leads 76ers past Bulls 127-108

    Markelle Fultz heard 20,000 Philadelphia 76ers fans exhort him to shoot each time he touched the ball, a roaring confidence boost for a No. 1 pick closer to a bust than brilliance. Fultz had the look he wanted in the second quarter. Yes, a simple jumpshot from the top pick of the 2017 draft in the second game of the season was enough to get a rise out of the fans – and a sigh of relief from Fultz.

  • Markelle Fultz's jumper overshadows dominant nights from Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid

    Ben Simmons had a triple-double. Joel Embiid scored 30 points. "He ended up taking the most shots out of anybody on our team," Brett Brown said Thursday night after the Sixers' 127-108 home opener win (see observations), "which, in itself, is to me a statement.

  • Sixers 127, Bulls 108: Markelle Fultz's 1st regular-season 3-pointer and Ben Simmons' triple-double headline win

    When Markelle Fultz got the ball, it felt a little bit like the Flyers were on the power play - there was a chorus of "shoot!" from the Wells Fargo Center crowd. Two minutes into the game, despite the Bulls' Cameron Payne playing well off him, Fultz turned down a generous invitation at a wide-open three-pointer from the left corner and dribbled into traffic instead. It wasn't what the crowd came to see, and it wasn't an encouraging sign for Fultz or the Sixers.

  • Hoiberg, Bulls already facing touch decisions on Opening Night

    The Bulls' starting point guard missing the team's season opener is less than ideal, but that is the dilemma Fred Hoiberg and company are faced with. The Bulls will turn to Cameron Payne as they get set to play the Sixers in Philadelphia Thursday night. The 24-year-old guard out of Murray State will be tasked with running the offense against one of the better defensive teams in the league.

  • Behind Enemy Lines: Fultz, former No. 1 pick ready for the 'challenge' in facing the Celtics

    As the top overall pick in the 2017 NBA draft, the idea that Markelle Fultz is in the starting lineup tonight shouldn't be all that surprising. Sixers head coach Brett Brown has followed Fultz's progress from a year ago closely. While it's too soon to say how much progress Fultz has made, Brown told reporters last week that by season's end, "I'll be able to look at you, and you'll be able to look at me and feel that he had a good season and improved.
