|Norman Powell: Returns to action with 13 points|
Powell compiled 13 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, an assist and a steal across 34 minutes in Thursday’s 122-103 loss to the Jazz.
The Scoop: Although it's a small sample size, there appears to be a correlation between Powell and Robert Covington's production. It's been rare for both players to meet projections, and it appears that the beneficiary is determined by who's got a hot hand. This wasn't the case when Gary Trent was in this spot, but Powell presents a more dominant defensive presence. It's unclear if this is going to be a continuing trend, but at the very least, it should keep DFS players from considering a two-player stack of Covington and Powell.
