Robert Covington scored just three points in 31 minutes on Tuesday in Game 1 of the first round of the Western Conference Playoffs vs. the Thunder.
Covington added five boards, three assists, one steal and one block in the victory. The Rockets were penetrating the lane all evening and kicking the ball to shooters, which isn't necessarily Covington's strong suit. It didn't help that his shot wasn't falling either, as he went 1-for-5 from three (1-for-6 FG). While this style of play doesn't play to Covington's biggest strengths, the Rockets still need him badly in order to have success and he should maintain a stable status in the fantasy realm.
