Robert Covington had a night of filming that very few NBA players have ever experienced. He only dribbled Nine times while scoring 43 from 11 three-pointers.
Saying that phrase out loud sounds absolutely incredible, but there are also several layers of historical achievement involved. Covington’s 11 three-pointers were the most threes ever in LA Clippers franchise history. Not only that, but it’s also tied for the most anyone has ever done in a game this season.
Covington’s 43 points were his career-high, and the 11 three-pointers were his career-high three-pointers. The 153 points the Clippers scored collectively as a team was the most they had scored in franchise history in a regular season game. They accomplished this without: Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, Norman Powell, Reggie Jackson, Marcus Morris, Nicolas Batum, Brandon Boston, Jason Preston and Jay Scrubb.

Friday night’s performance was nothing short of a historic offensive performance. Not only was Robert Covington’s shooting awe-inspiring, but so was the entire performance of the shorthanded Clippers team. It was a fantastic rebound win after the heartbreaking loss to the Chicago Bulls. Next up for the Clippers is the New Orleans Pelicans, where a win against them would essentially secure LA for the 8th seed they desire.
