Markelle Fultz dropped his second career triple-double in the win against the LA Lakers, finishing the game with 21 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.
After the impressive win of the Orlando Magic, Fultz talked to ESPN about his performance and his doubters.
“What I’ve been through, it just gives me more fire to keep going.I put in a lot of hard work to be where I’m at. I’ve been through a lot, but I never gave up.
So, it just shows for people out there, whoever is doubting you, whoever is doing something [to you], put something on your mind and if you have something on your mind, go do it. Don’t ever let somebody tell you that you can’t and I’m never going to stop. I’m going to keep working until I can’t play no more.
It felt like another game. My mindset, I knew we had guys down and I knew that I had to step up,” Fultz said.
“I think I just showed everybody my talents and what I can do, and again it feels good because it’s against a great team. But for me it’s another game and I’m extremely happy, but I’m getting ready for the next one,” he added.
