    I feel like Harden missed that intentionally and they have practiced that

    Or the Rockets realized that Porzingis doesn't know how to block out

    Covington came from the other side of the lane going out of bounds to get to that exact spot, and Tucker turned and faced into zingis to distract him so roco could slip in. That was all by design.

    And why would they do that when you have Harden who was perfect from the line (15-15) up until that moment?

    The miss was on purpose. Harden was looking at the rockets bench along then what to do just prior to the free throw

    He literally used a football swing move to get to the other side. Absolutely amazing.

    oh man. from this point on, RoCo did everything to make up for all his prior play. It was so bad lol but loved how he didn't get down on himself and played through it. classic vet mentality, young players typically wouldn't be able to do that

    And made his only 3 pointer in OT. I recall another game where he couldn’t hit anything and made a critical go ahead 3 pointer in the final mins. Not scare of the moment.

    The Rockets need to play like the Warriors death squad without a Durant. The pieces are there and this play by Covington indicates they are capable of mimicking that team.

    7'2 wingspan to be exact.

    Wingspan matters.
