There have been times that Suns coaches Alvin Gentry and Lindsey Hunter have sought more effort from players, but they never worried about seeking it from P.J. Tucker. In his first season with the team, Tucker became an example of the type of hard-nosed effort that the Suns want to be their new image. Tucker’s work to defend and grind during games does not always translate to box scores, but it did earn him the 11th annual Dan Majerle Hustle Award on Sunday night.
