On Monday afternoon following practice, 76ers coach Brett Brown talked about the noticeable pep in his players’ step as winners of two games in a row for just the second time this season and three of their last four games.

He also talked about the benefit of having a shooter like forward Robert Covington making the game a little bit easier for players like Michael Carter Williams and Tony Wroten. In the team’s last five games, Covington has connected on 16-of-36 3-point attempts.

“I feel like what you see in Robert in doses, imagine if you had, you know, a few more shooters like that,” Brown said. “We have to focus our energies on the others improving their shooting because it is all about space. That kind of play creates it.
