Chris Paul says Rockets should give P.J. Tucker a contract extension

Thunder All-Star Chris Paul initially had little to say on Saturday about his two seasons in Houston, but he did talk about long-time friend P.J. Tucker’s contributions and then advocated for Tucker to receive a contract extension.

P.J. Tucker deserves more than his guaranteed contract

Photo by Bob Levey/ P.J.’s contract should be extended. Sunday, it was announced that the Houston Rockets fully guaranteed P.J. Tucker’s final contract year. Tucker, 34, is set to return to Houston for at least one more season through 2020-2021. The announcement isn’t necessarily a surprise either. The Rockets traded away their only rotational big man, Clint Capela, last week, leaving Tucker as the obvious choice at center. What is shocking, however, is that Houston had gone more than halfway through this with P.J. wondering about his future with the team. That should have never...

Bojan Bogdanovic game-winner sinks Rockets in 114-113 loss

Bojan Bogdanovic game-winner sinks Rockets in 114-113 loss

Photo by Bill Baptist/NBAE via Rockets lose a tough one. The Rockets were on their way to a come-from-behind stunner after P.J. Tucker buried the go-ahead corner three in one of the most clutch moments of the season. But then, Bojan Bogdanovic raised the bar with a dagger at the buzzer in perhaps the most crushing loss for the Rockets this season. The play was well-defended. Bogdanovic came off the wide screen and was met with Tucker and James Harden smothering him, but Bogdanovic sunk the three. Major onions. But how did we get to this point? Let’s rewind: The Rockets started this...

Bogdanovic's 3 at buzzer gives Jazz 114-113 win over Rockets

HOUSTON (AP) — Bojan Bogdanovic made a 3-pointer as time expired to give the Utah Jazz a 114-113 victory over the Houston Rockets on Sunday night. Jordan Clarkson scored 30 points and Donovan Mitchell finished with 24 points, six assists and five rebounds for the Jazz, who won their second straight after a five-game losing streak. They needed to come back after P.J. Tucker's 3-pointer from the corner gave Houston a two-point lead with 1.6 seconds remaining. After a timeout, Bogdanovic came off a screen and hit a contested 29-footer to give the Jazz the win. Mike Conley added 20 points, six...
