Robert Covington didn’t get into the game for the entirety of the fourth quarter on Thursday, ending the game with 10 points (4-of-7), two rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block, two 3-pointers and three turnovers in 28 minutes.
Covington was benched in favor of Jeff Green, who had an excellent game off the bench and has been a welcomed addition to the Rockets. Unfortunately, the same can not be said of Covington so far in the postseason as he has looked uncomfortable at times, specifically on the offensive end. The Rockets will hope to get Covington back on track as the series continues on Saturday. He did still return six cash counters despite not seeing any action in the fourth quarter.
