“Attention to detail,” Covington told The Athletic about how he defends Harden. “I’ve played with Harden, I’ve watched a lot of film.
It’s just knowing I’m a defender, and like you said, paying attention and watching film, tendencies, and stuff.” “His length,” Saunders added in what helps Covington. “His size, his ability to contest. He’s a tough cover, James is, but Robert is a guy who’s been around him and forced him into some tough looks at times.”
