Nets seem to have 3rd quarter problems
 
The Nets stink in the third quarter and nobody really has an explanation. They are 28th in the league in 3rd-quarter scoring margin, losing an average of two points in those 12 minutes. Theyve been outscored by as many as 30-5 in that quarter (who can forget that stretch in San Antonio).

Deron Williams said he talked to long-winded PJ Carlesimo about shortening halftime speeches so wed have a little more time to get warmed up.

It didnt really work, Williams said. I just think its a mentality. Teams come out and I think they know weve struggled in thrid quarters and they come at us a little bit tougher and weve gotta do a better job of responding and fighting back.

Actually the 3rd quarter woe has been getting better since PJ took over, especially in those early days we actually had 2nd quarter collapse but surged in 3rd quarter. I dont think it has anything to do with a particular quarter, the Nets just always allow the opponents to go on a run at an unpredictable time to dig a big hole. It can happen at anytime except for 1st quarter, when they usually start out well.
