Sixers guard Markelle Fultz hit his first regular season 3-pointer last night against the Chicago Bulls, a more pronounced feat for the Washington product than any other player in the Sixers roster due to his history of shooting woes through his rookie season.

Now boasting a re-constructed shot with new mechanics and a higher release point, Fultz hasn't been getting any respect from opposing defenses, as he's been dared to shoot from distance through the preseason and two games into the real thing.

“It doesn't bother me,” said Markelle Fultz, according to Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer. “I know I'm capable of.”

While Fultz passed up several chances during his season debut against the Boston Celtics, he took his opportunities against the Bulls head-on.

“I worked hard this summer,” Fultz said. “I shot threes. I shot mid-range. I worked on my game. So I was  comfortable. I believed in it, and I thought it was going in, which it did.”

Fultz shot a woeful 5-of-15 from the floor and only 1-of-3 from deep, with his only basket from long-range coming against a late-closing Zach LaVine, which made the home crowd at the Wells Fargo Center erupt into a frenzy.

The second-year guard is now 7-of-22 from the field in his two games as a starter and will have to prove that he can shoot more efficiently if he is to remain the starting shooting guard over veteran J.J. Redick.
