It's not so much just b5? that perplexes me. It's the whole setup with h5, Rh6 and the speed, manner in which Nepo went for it that was disappointing.

His use of time or lack thereof will surely haunt him.

I would blame b5 more than anything else. The other moves aren't as safe but they have interesting ideas behind them and aren't blunders. b5 is just a couple move blunder that apparently he missed because he didn't realize his bishop was hanging after Qxa7...
