76ers forward Robert Covington
tanked way too obviously suffered a terribly timed gaffe by fouling C.J. McCollum with the game tied and the shot clock off. And of course McCollum made both free throws to put the Trail Blazers up two.
But Covington found redemption with a buzzer-beating putback to send the game to overtime.
Philadelphia lost in overtime, but at least the defeat can’t be pinned so singularly on Covington.
