Covington has been known for his defensive prowess for quite some time. So far this season, he is averaging 1.1 blocks per game and nearly 3 steals per game (2.8). Covington earned NBA first team all-defense last season, and so far he’s been able to carry his defensive skills from the 76ers to the Timberwolves. Anyone who watches Covington play on the defensive end can quickly see that opposing offenses and players are forced to adjust the way they play to account for Covington being able to defend the two through four positions when he is on the court.
