    I dont remember which quarter it was, but it was kind of a scare when CP3 went out suddenly it seemed, then went to the corner way to end of the bench. I thought he was hurt or some sort of injury. Lets hope he stays healthy.

    He shot neither well nor abysmally, but he did play hard despite his shot. 7 boards and 7 assists, with 3 steals and a block should not be dismissed as "bad", imo.

    Shooting last night:

    9 of 24 overall is 37%
    1 of 4 from 3 is 25%
    5 of 6 from free throw land is 83%

    Not to mention how many times he got blown by, one i think led to an Ayton foul. Steals aren't a true measure of individual defense as well.

    He did do well on assists and turnovers though.

    24 points on 24 shots is definitely a bad shooting night. That’s a Jamal Crawford line.

    The final foul was an interesting situation. The foul call was on Tucker and there was undeniable video evidence that he hit Book's elbow with his own. However, there were those who heard a slap on the arm. Well, if so, it came from Holiday as the elbow to elbow video evidence wouldn't sound like that.

    I watched the Bucks' broadcast initially. They showed the foul by Tucker. I then went back and watched the last quarter plus of the Suns' broadcast. EJ thought the foul was on Holiday and didn't seem to notice the foul call was on Tucker as the game ended. Even going into the post game with Tom & Tom, EJ mentioned the final "foul on Holiday." Maybe they both got him. Who knows. If so, the Holiday foul was well hidden or they just didn't have the right camera angle.

    The more I watch the video, it looks like Holiday slapped Booker's left arm.

    That would have created a nice slapping sound as well.

    It is. That's what I'm saying. The elbow to elbow doesn't make a slapping sound. Watching this over and over, I'm convinced they both got him. But the foul was ruled against Tucker who actually got him after the slap. I mean it was bang bang. Arm slap, elbow.

    So, he got fouled twice. A foul was called. Game.

    One angle shows the Holiday slap. The other shows the Tucker elbow.

    Another foul missed in all of this was on the play before when Middleton tied the game with a three. Tucker came out and set an illegal screen on Book and shoved him with two hands. He had to scramble to get back just in time to put a hand up as Middleton tied the game on a three.

    He was fouled by both players on the play and not just on the arm. They both hit his left arm as he was going up, but Tucker also undercut Booker while he was in the air which is a foul as well.

    Yeah, Tucker got Booker elbow to elbow but Holiday fouled him first and it was more clear to me.

    If it wasn't for the slapping sound I doubt either gets called.

    That's a good point too. He was under his landing zone but then moved before he came down. Is that legal? But I now see that he might have clipped Book's right leg while he was in the air too.

    ETA: Yeah, just watched it a few more times. Book's right foot gets knocked back by Tucker while Book is in the air.
