Like more and more NBA players, P.J. Tucker of the Houston Rockets answered fan questions during an Instagram livestream. One fan asked him if he likes the small-ball his team is using.

“I don’t mind it,” the 6′ 5″ forward, who is getting used to playing center, said. He pointed to the fact that for the last couple of years, when the Rockets met the Warriors, the final minutes were played with small-ball lineups.

“I think it’s different, but I think it works in some cases. We’ll see,” Tucker concluded.

This season the 34-year-old forward is averaging 7.1 points and 6.9 rebounds per game.
