As if Rockets fans needed another reason to love PJ Tucker, this latest act just shows how much PJ cares for the city of Houston.
The NBA suspended the season following Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert’s positive COVID-19 test. No one knows if the season will be resumed since the virus continues to spread across the world.
Before play was suspended, Tucker and the Rockets were in sixth place in the Western Conference standings. Houston had a record of 40-24.
Tucker was averaging 7.1 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists for the Rockets in 64 games. The 34-year-old was shooting 43.3 percent from the field, 37.0 percent from beyond the arc and 84.1 percent from the free-throw line.
While NBA owners are hopeful of resuming the season in the summer, we can’t say it’s going to happen for sure since the virus dictates the league’s schedule moving forward.
Tucker, who is in his third season with the Rockets, has career NBA averages of 7.4 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists with the Toronto Raptors, Phoenix Suns and Rockets.
