Robert Covington, SF 34 MIN | 4-15 FG | 2-2 FT | 4 REB | 3 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 14 PTS | +2 +/-Big Shot Bob made some big threes, including one especially impressive Reggie Miller-esque one in the second half. The Sixers started off 0-17. Since then, MCW and Big Shot Bob have fully entered the picture and they are 10-20.

Big Shot Bob Returns To Form, Sixers Beat Pistons

Detroit Pistons 69 Final
Recap | Box Score
89 Philadelphia 76ers

 

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, PF 31 MIN | 6-14 FG | 0-0 FT | 6 REB | 4 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 12 PTS | +34 +/-The consummate Doug Collins player: a veteran defender with an affinity for long-twos. LRMAM has been a surprise this season, as I originally thought Sixers fans would want him dealt at next month’s deadline, but his positive defensive contributions and mentorship to Joel Embiid could make him worthwhile to keep around.

Robert Covington,

Davis Plays, Pelicans Cruise To Win

Philadelphia 76ers 74 Final
Recap | Box Score
99 New Orleans Pelicans
Robert Covington, SF 30 MIN | 2-11 FG | 2-2 FT | 6 REB | 5 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 6 PTS | -1+/-Don’t look now, but Covington’s recent cold streak has put his field goal percentage below 40 percent. Don’t get me wrong, Covington remains perhaps the most remarkable success story of the Sixers season. However, with defenses potentially sending more attention his way as his reputation grows and in the extended absence of Tony Wroten, the cold streak

Sixers Play Great, But Lowry’s Late Heroics Lead to Yet Another Loss

Toronto Raptors 91 Final
Recap | Box Score
86 Philadelphia 76ers
Robert Covington, SF 35 MIN | 5-15 FG | 4-4 FT | 6 REB | 0 AST | 2 STL | 2 BLK | 4 TO | 18 PTS | +11 +/-Despite struggling mightily in the final three quarters, Covington was the personification of the fire emoji to start the game and initiated a 15-0 lead for the Sixers right out the gate. Although his defense still leaves much to be desired, RoCo continues to prove why he is such a great get for such a low price.

Knicks Top Sixers, 98-91

New York Knicks 98 Final  Recap  | Box Score 91 Philadelphia 76ers
Furkan Aldemir, PF 19 MIN | 0-1 FG | 0-0 FT | 5 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 3 BLK | 0 TO | 0 PTS | -8 +/-Furkan was a non-factor in his first NBA start, dropping rebounds and often failing to box out. His three blocks were a beacon of hope, but his defense was, as a whole, largely unimpressive.

76ers’ Garbage Time Unit Attempts to Give You Cheaper Crappy Pizza for Championship Sunday, Fails

Philadelphia 76ers 89 Final
Recap | Box Score
107 Detroit Pistons
Nerlens Noel, C 24 MIN | 3-7 FG | 1-2 FT | 7 REB | 0 AST | 1 STL | 2 BLK | 2 TO | 7 PTS | -20 +/-

By no means was this game a step backwards for Noel, but against stiffer competition in Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond, he failed to establish tempo and momentum like he did a night ago. Like most starters, Noel didn’t play many minutes in a blowout second half, but for a player trying to establish consistency, tonight remained
