Video: Rockets’ PJ Tucker blows wide-open layup vs. Clippers
Houston Rockets forward P.J. Tucker performs a lot of the nitty and gritty tasks that make up winning basketball on a nightly basis. His forte, so to speak, has never been scoring the ball with consistent efficiency.
Yet, on Wednesday, when he had a breakaway layup against the Los Angeles Clippers in the second quarter, it surely was going to lead to two points, right? Not quite.

Credit can be somewhat given to Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard for at least giving Tucker the illusion that he could challenge the shot, but ultimately that’s a bunny at the rim that the high-octane Rockets had to have.
The team still carried a 12-point lead into halftime, but it’s unlikely that Tucker, who has become something of a three-point marksman, is going to have an easier bucket this season.
