The Phoenix Suns had a three-point lead with seconds on the clock, then inexplicably fouled Ricky Rubio as he heaved a desperation half-court shot.

This wild sequence is every coach’s nightmare.


Rubio had a slight chance to make the desperation shot. But after being fouled he drained all three free throws and the game went into overtime.

Just an unconscionable lack of discipline from the Nuggets, who will assuredly get an earful from head coach Michael Malone.
