In the first quarter of the Phoenix Suns' game against the Houston Rockets on Tuesday, P.J. Tucker and Eric Bledsoe combined for an inbound fail that basically sums up the team's season:

But this isn't the first such instance in the NBA this year. In fact, the Miami Heat did the same thing less than a week earlier in a much more critical situation -- with 41 seconds left and down 102-101 to the Minnesota Timberwolves. (The Heat went on to lose by the same score.)

So, which was worse: The one from the over-.500 team scraping to stay in the playoff race in the heated West? Or the one from the sub-.500 team -- albeit playoff caliber, at the moment -- that involved players with just 32 starts for the Heat between them this season?

(Whichever you pick, it still likely won't challenge Lamar Odom's mishap for the 21st century inbound fail crown.)
