Tucker posted three points (1-2 FG, 1-3 3Pt), 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks across 36 minutes during Tuesday's 117-111 victory over the Timberwolves. Tucker was a nonfactor offensively, but he made his mark on the game through impressive rebounding and defense. The performance marked just the second time in Tucker's career that he's gone for at least 10 rebounds, two steals and two blocks. Since the All-Star break, he's averaging 5.8 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 31.7 minutes.
Tucker finished with nine points (3-7 FG, 3-6 3Pt), 13 rebounds, three blocks and one assist across 39 minutes during Saturday's 111-110 overtime victory over the Celtics. Tucker saw more outside shots than his previous average of 4.1 three-point attempts, but the most surprising element of his game came from in the paint. The 34-year-old's stout performance in the paint earned him season highs in both blocks (three) and offensive rebounds (six). Tucker offers varying fantasy value but continues to prove how formidable he is as an undersized center, demonstrated by Houston's seventh win in eight contests since the lineup change.
Tucker posted two points (1-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 25 minutes during Monday's 123-112 win over the Knicks. Tucker wasn't able to connect from distance Monday, but he still made an impact with solid rebounding and good defensive stats. In February, he's averaging 6.8 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.7 threes, 1.1 assists and 1.0 steal in 32.9 minutes.
Tucker managed just four points (1-4 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and two steals in 36 minutes during Tuesday's 116-105 victory over the Celtics. Tucker is playing big minutes as the starting center for the Rockets, although the production has not yet followed suit. He is outside the top-150 over the past week and the change of role does not appear to be agreeing with him from a statistical standpoint. He is fine to use as a steals streamer but that's about where his 12-team value ends at this point.
Tucker finished with nine points (3-5 FG, 3-3 3Pt), four assists, and three rebounds in 36 minutes Sunday in the Rockets' 114-113 loss to the Jazz. Tucker caught a kick-out pass from Russell Westbrook and nailed a corner three to give the Rockets the lead with 2.6 seconds remaining. However, the next and final possession of the game resulted in Utah's Bojan Bogdanovic burying a dagger over Tucker. It will be interesting to see how Tucker's role changes now that he's the team's starting center, but the early returns haven't been all that encouraging. In the six games the Rockets have played since Clint Capela was out with a heel injury before being traded, Tucker is averaging 6.8 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.8 three-pointers, 1.5 assists and 1.0 steal in 34.3 minutes.
