Understanding the importance of "the moment" when making his sneaker selections, P.J. Tucker had another timely pair on deck when the Phoenix Suns visited the Los Angeles Lakers Sunday night.

Though Kobe Bryant sat out the game with a sore shoulder, Tucker honored the Mamba by bringing back his first Nike signature shoe, the Zoom Kobe 1, in the "Blackout" colorway.

Tucker had 5 points and 8 rebounds as the Suns fell to the streaking Lakers 97-77.
