WATCH: Markelle Fultz gets serious air to block Trey Burke’s shot

Playing in his second game in a row after missing almost the entire season, Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz is making up for lost time.

On Wednesday night, playing against the New York Knicks, Fultz was well off the ball when Trey Burke tried to go hard to the rim. Fultz got over to the other side of the basket, went up and blocked Burke’s shot.

It was pretty darn impressive.


The rookie got up, big time, to deny that shot.

After last night’s rousing success of a comeback, it’s clear Fultz is well on his way to becoming a difference-maker for the suddenly very good Sixers, who are making noise ahead of the 2018 NBA Playoffs.
