Once a team is eliminated from playoff contention, the only thing left to do is spoil the hopes of others. With not much to play for, the Phoenix Suns did exactly that against the Houston Rockets tonight.
With a season-high 24 points, forward P.J. Tucker helped the Suns pull off a surprising 124-115 upset of the Rockets on the road. Following the loss, the Rockets are now two back in the loss column for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
Tucker had his best game of the season wearing the newly released "FTB" Nike Kobe 4. Tucker has also laced up the "Del Sol" and "Prelude" colorways this season.
