76ers' Robert Covington: Pours in 24 points Monday

Covington recorded 24 points (9-22 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 13 rebounds, four steals and two blocks across 45 minutes in Monday's 112-109 overtime loss to the Magic.

Covington's big game Monday was his best since a March 9 game where he posted an identical 24 point, 13 rebound game against the Trail Blazers. The rangy small forward has amplified his production in the second half of the season-- he's averaging 16.4 points and shooting nearly 40 percent on almost seven attempts from three-point distance per game since the beginning of February. Those scoring numbers combined with the ability he displayed Monday to fill up defensive stat categories makes Covington a quality fantasy starter as the season winds down.
