P.J. Tucker finished with 11 points (4-10 FG, 3-8 3PT), 11 rebounds and one assist across 38 minutes during the Rockets' 114-117 loss to the Thunder on Monday.
Tucker has now scored in double figures and drained at least three three's in all but one game of the series. He continues to start at the center spot for the small-ball Rockets and should continue seeing heavy minutes going forward.
P.J. Tucker nailed all four of his three-point attempts en route to 14 points (5-7 FG, 4-4 3PT), five rebounds and one assist across 30 minutes of action during the Rockets' 111-98 victory over the Thunder in Game 2.
On a night where the Rockets attempted an NBA playoff record 56 three-pointers, Tucker connected on all four of his attempts. He has now scored in double figures in consecutive games for the first time since back in February and will look to extend the streak heading into Saturday's Game 3.
P.J. Tucker contributed six points (2-6 FG, 2-4 3PT), six rebounds, two assists and two steals across 36 minutes of playing time during the Rockets 113-97 victory over the Lakers on Thursday night.
In classic P.J. Tucker fashion, he strongly made his presence felt on Thursday despite the minimal stat line. He drew the assignment of defending Anthony Davis and fared well as he limited the All-Star to 17 points while forcing him to commit a team-high seven turnovers. Tucker is a vital part of the Rockets success, however, it doesn't typically translate well to fantasy. The Rockets and their de-facto center will get two days off before taking on the Kings on Sunday.
P.J. Tucker scored just 6 points in 34 minutes as Houston lost to the Portland Trailblazers. Tucker was 2-of-7 from the field with two three-pointers made. Tucker also had eight rebounds and one steal.
Tucker has gotten off to a slow start for the Rockets during the NBA restart, struggling to find some shooting consistency in the past two games. Tucker is rarely going to be a top offensive option for the Rockets, but can normally provide some solid rebounding and steady three-point shooting. Tucker has a tough role as an undersized starter in the Rockets' front court, which could be limiting him offensively. The Rockets play the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday, so fantasy owners should avoid Tucker as he'll have his hands full trying to guard Anthony Davis.
P.J. Tucker contributed 11 points (4-14 FG, 3-12 3PT), four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block throughout 38 minutes of action during the Rockets 120-116 victory over the Bucks on Sunday.
Despite being left wide-open for most of the night due to the attention drawn by James Harden, Tucker really struggled with his shot, hitting only 25 percent of his 12 three-point attempts. The nine-year vet is a better real-life player than he is in fantasy and is better left on the waiver wire. Tucker will look to find his stroke from three on Tuesday against the Blazers.
