Markelle Fultz vs Dante Exum, Fultz Scores 13 4th Quarter Points In Loss
Down by 24 in the third, Markelle Fultz scored 13 of his 23 points in the fourth to try to pull off a comeback victory for the 76ers. And just like in his debut against Jayson Tatum and the Celtics, he came away with a loss thanks to a standout performance from an opposing guard. This time the opposing guard was Dante “I’m still only 21 years old even though I was the 5th pick in the 2014 draft” Exum.
The former 5th pick, who has spent the summer training with former NBA player Baron Davis, followed up an 18 point, 6 board, 5 assist night with 26 points and 10 assists in the 100-94 victory for the Jazz.
The Jazz also got another strong performance from rookie Donovan Mitchell. The former Ballislife All-American had 15 points, 4 assists, 3 steals and represents the other half of the DMX duo.
