The Nets seem to be in the same pattern for a lot of games. They play good for quarters 1,2 & 4 . They always seem to fall a part & lose leads during the third quarter. They spend the 4th quarter fighting back. What's the deal with the 3rd quarter?
well it is early and with such a small sample space of games to look at (struggles/losses occur against West teams) there are a variety of factors:
1) relaxing too much
2) Frank not giving his guys enough motivation
3) the other team turned it on and just outplayed the Nets.
4) perimeter oriented teams which live and die by the outside shot will lose more often than they win.
the only things that the Nets can control is 1 and 2.
