Robert Covington picked up right where he left off on Wednesday even though the Sixers fell, notching 13 points, five rebounds, four 3-pointers, two steals and a block.
That’s what we like to see. As usual, Covington has room for improvement in the shooting department (4-of-11) but 10 of those came from behind the arc so we’ll give him a slight pass considering it’s still preseason. Though all the talk in Philly is about the high-profile youngsters, Covington is locked into a big minute role and will be an elite source of triples and steals. Don’t let him slip past the middle rounds.
