Two players on the Phoenix roster, born just a month apart in 1985, yet somehow one has been in the league seven years longer than the other. P.J. Tucker attended to the University of Texas, then bounced around Europe and the D-League for several years before finally catching on with the Suns this season. Sebastian Telfair, on the other hand, went straight to the NBA out of high school. Once regarded as the top prospect in the country, Telfair has struggled to stay in the league, and played for 7 teams (including Boston) in 8 seasons.
How did they each do? Tucker started the game, played 40 minutes, and had 9 points, 4 rebounds, and 2 assists. Meanwhile Telfair got off the bench for only 7 minutes, and didn't contribute anything to the box score except a turnover.
