    Rockets' Robert Covington: Posts 20 with five treys in win

The new acquisition is the glue that holds Houston's small-ball scheme together, as he's combining his well-regarded defensive skills with substantial offensive contributions. His plus-31 plus-minus Thursday is evidence of his tremendous impact. A steady forward with offensive pop at the wing is what the Houston Rockets have been missing in recent seasons, and it appears Covington might be the answer.

    Rockets' Robert Covington: Stat stuffing performance

    Robert Covington ended with 12 points (3-11 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds, four blocks, three assists and three steals in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 116-105 victory over the Celtics.Covington continues to shine for his new team, turning in a vintage performance Tuesday. He has been a perfect addition for the Houston Rockets and the playing would indicate he was being underutilized in Minnesota. His scoring is typically going to hover around 12-15 points per game but it is the supporting stats that provide the base for his overall value. He could be a second-round player moving forward, especially given the Rockets are going to give him all the run he can handle.
