It definitely didn't help that the refs swallowed their whistles against the Pacers in the 4th, Beal was cold af, and the Suns couldn't keep the Pacers off the glass.

Gordon was so open he could shoot twice that 3 ball.

The fact that there was not 1 foul of the pacers in the 4th is absolutely insane.

The haters love that.

Was Book fouled on that last shot? I thought he was hit on the arm a couple different times.

Definitely fouled…Nesmith got his elbow and then his wrist…possibly got ball first on the wrist one, but definitely got his elbow first

I don't think Booker was fouled on the last shot. I was watching the Pacers broadcast which didn't show much of a replay, so maybe I missed it.

Really only needed one shot at the end because the Pacers were doing a good job of screwing up opportunities themselves.

The suns broadcast showed a good replay…it definitely looks like Nesmith hits book on the elbow before the release

I just watched the slow mo replay. Nesmith first hits his arms when he’s on the ground. Might have even been trying to intentionally foul. Then he hits Book on his left arm before the shot at the top of his jump. Pretty sure that’s a foul even if it’s not his shooting arm. Should have been three free throws.

0-fer generous. I'd say he was a negative.

The bottom line is that we didn’t bother boxing out and we got outhustled. Numerous plays including the go ahead basket where Indiana got multiple attempts at the basket, almost scoring every time. Yet another 4th quarter melt down.

It shouldn’t have come down to that last basket.

I'm not worked up about this loss. It was there for the taking but just came up short for a handful of reasons.

It happens. Can't win'em all.

114 through 3 and then 17 in the 4th. We played all the hits in this one. Stagnant, hesitant O with not enough hustle on the other end.

I feel the same as after that stupid San Antonio loss.

Catastrophic 4th for Gordon (and Beal).
Why is Gordon out there if he’s gonna turn down a wide open 3?
Absolute puss
