Robert Covington 22 Points Full Highlights (5/3/2018)

I’ve talked about this before, so forgive me for talking about again, but I think it bears repeating: Robert Covington, who is just a guy, was 7th in the league in ESPN’s “Real Plus-Minus” stat. I’m utterly incompetent when it comes to anything involving numbers, but I’m pretty sure RPM is a somewhat legit stat….

Robert Covington 22 Points Full Highlights (3/6/2018)

This is Robert Covington’s best scoring game since the very beginning of December. Three whole months since he last scored 20. But he’s playing tons of minutes despite his extended slump, because Brett Brown knows what’s up, and what’s up is that Covington is still a positive player on the court even when he’s not…

Robert Covington 25 Points Full Highlights (12/2/2017)

Prior to this game, Robert Covington had made ten out of his last 43 attempts from threeworld. This included a 0-of-9 effort against the Cavaliers. Covington’s slump coincided strangely with his brand new contract extension, but I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt and not just assume he played out of his…

Robert Covington Career High 31 Points Full Highlights (11/13/2017)

Looking at the list the highest-scoring games in Robert Covington’s career is making me sad. All I wanted to do was confirm that 31 is indeed his career-high in points. I didn’t sign up for the part where Covington’s eight next-highest games all resulted in losses for his team. Basketball-reference should provide like a spoiler…

Robert Covington 24 Points/6 Threes Full Highlights (11/9/2017)

I am disappointed to see that Robert Covington is only 32nd in the league in terms of threes attempted per minute. If you restrict that to actual players who play real minutes (RIP Alec Peters/Ryan Arcidiacono), he still comes in at only 15th. That’s not good enough. At 50 percent from deep on the year,…

Robert Covington 22 Points Full Highlights (11/3/2017)

After several years of being a sub-40% field goal shooter, Robert Covington is apparently benefitting from no longer being the first, second, or even third option on his team this season, because he’s now shooting a neat 47% from the field. Even more impressive, his three-point percentage currently sits at sizzly 49% – that’s sizzlier…

Robert Covington 29 Points/7 Threes Full Highlights (10/18/2017)

Lost in the resplendent glory of the 76ers young core of Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, and Markelle Fultz is the knowledge of who remains their best player: Robert Covington. That’s right, I said it, and I’ll say it again too. Robert Covington. Robert Covington. Rob 👏 Ert 👏 Cov 👏 Ing 👏 Ton 👏. I…

Robert Covington 24 Points Full Highlights (3/20/2017)

OFFICIAL DTB PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: While it may seem like Robert Covington is playing well this year, and in fact he probably is playing well this year, he is still not shooting over 40% from the field. Defense is great. Steals are great. Rebounds are great too. But so is efficient shooting, and Covington is…

Robert Covington 24 Points Full Highlights (3/9/2017)

Not shown: Robert Covington’s inexplicable take foul with 12 seconds left in a tie game. He made up for it with the game-tying putback as time expired, but what the heck was he thinking? You’ve got to know which teams are in the penalty and which aren’t. Same deal with timeouts. Part of the game…

Robert Covington 21 Points/3 Blocks Full Highlights (1/29/2017)

Robert Covington achieved something last night. It wasn’t quite a five by five, but it was close. It was…the fabled “scrub by five”! He had 21 points, 12 rebounds, and three each of assists, steals, and blocks. So, not only did he meet the official threshold of a scrub by five (getting at least two…
