PJ Tucker has given his take on who would win a pickup game between his teammates, Russell Westbrook and James Harden. Russ and Harden are two of the best players in the league and several fans have dreamed of seeing them going against one another in a 1-on-1 game.
This is a hard matchup to predict, including for Tucker. Fortunately, he came up with a pretty on-point response. During an Instagram live, Tucker addressed this matter, talking about both players’ competitiveness and what the result of the game would be.
“Out the gate Russ is gon come out so hard and Harden is just going to be chilling and then it’s going to get real serious, I think it just ends up in both of them fighting because they’re so competitive,” Tucker said.

Brodie and the Beard are great competitors. They give everything they have every time they step on the court and this match would be a great one to see for sure. This season they teamed up in Houston after the Rockets agreed to send Chris Paul to the Oklahoma City Thunder over the summer.
Houston was seen as one of the competitors for the West this season, but time will tell if they have what it takes to get past great teams like the Lakers, Clippers or Nuggets.
