The Philadelphia 76ers got a big lift from a former HBCU star to avoid a date with the wrong-side of history. Philadelphia came up with an 85-77 win over Minnesota on Wednesday night to avoid an NBA record 0-18 start.

// Second-year forward Robert Covington chipped in a career-high 17 points in 31 minutes for Philadelphia. The former Tennessee State star was 3-for-6 from three point range and added four rebounds.

Covington was signed by the 76ers earlier this season after being selected first overall in the NBDL Draft back in October.
