There’s only one player in the NBA who would be trending on Twitter because he scored 19 points in a game: Markelle Fultz.
Each time Fultz accomplishes something he hasn’t before, it will go viral. That was the case for Fultz on Sunday night after he scored a career-high 19 points on 8-for-10 shooting, with his final points coming on a game-sealing steal and dunk (and-1).
Some, as you will see below, find it comical that a simple 19-point game set Twitter on fire. But Magic Twitter and the majority of tweeters celebrate each Fultz milestone and moment as they should, just as they did for Twitter Reacts to the return of Markelle Fultz and Twitter reacts to the Markelle Fultz trade.
There were many tweets about Fultz’s career night, and here are the best that we came across....
