Robert Covington did not intend to be repetitive. He does not suffer from a limited vocabulary. He really was not even trying to make a point. But he did.
As the Rockets forward was asked about issues this week and especially in the blowout loss against the Clippers on Thursday, he kept hitting on the same two words, “mindset” and “approach.”
In a way, he had hit on every other issue, with the Rockets’ attitude to start games or handle poor stretches becoming issues they had not seen coming when they were on a roll a week ago.
