Now landing 6-of-12 attempted three's over his last three games, Tucker guided the Phoenix Suns to a combined 47.1 field goal percentage on the night.

P.J. Tucker produced seven points (1-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT), eight assists, five rebounds, two steals, and one block across 33 minutes in Tuesday's 113-103 loss to the 76ers.

Tucker was first to exit the Phoenix Suns ' previous game Thursday against the Spurs in the first quarter with a bruised sternum, but he healed up in time to take back his spot in the starting five. With several other players missing Saturday's game due to injury, Tucker was required to assume big minutes and ended up putting up double-digit shot attempts for the first time in January. He should continue to hold down a 30-plus minute role until the likes of Brandon Knight (groin), Markieff Morris (shoulder), and Jon Leuer (back) are cleared to return.

Tucker had to exit the Phoenix Suns ' game Thursday versus the Spurs after he took a knee to the sternum in the first quarter, but it appears likely he will play Saturday.
