Robert Covington logged a team-high 39 minutes in the 102-95 win against the Cavs on Monday and delivered a juicy line with 24 points, four triples, seven boards, two blocks, two steals and an assist.
It was reported that Karl-Anthony Towns respects Covington and has been willing to take feedback from his new teammate. That’s welcome news as Jimmy Butler failed to find this balance with Towns. RoCo has taken on Butler’s role for the Wolves as a defensive stopper and floor spacer while averaging an additional three minutes per game over the last week.
