Robert Covington anchored the Rockets' defensive effort in a team-high 39 minutes on Friday, recording four steals and one block to go along with his six points (2-of-3 from deep), seven rebounds and two assists.
Covington was instrumental in slowing down Anthony Davis tonight. Both he and P.J. Tucker (six points, nine rebounds, one assist, two 3s, two steals) made mostly smart use of their fouls when they were forced to commit them. Overall, both players fulfilled their roles admirably, something they'll need to replicate if the Rockets are to complete this upset and advance to the Western Conference Finals.
