Can we talk about these 3rd quarter issues though. I mean seriously, this has been the case for a few years now and especially in the playoffs last season. Regardless how they do in the 1st half, it always seems like they are outscored something like 37-18 in the 3rd. Other teams make adjustments, and the C's seem to come out looking lost for much of the 3rd. Is this a coaching thing? Or the players kind of relaxing when they have a lead and letting their guards down?
We saw Brown and Tatum look fantastic to end the first half and it's a big reason we had a lead despite playing like we should have been down 10. Yet in the 3rd, Brown made some plays but Tatum mostly disappeared, and that was much of the 2nd half. Meanwhile, the actual superstar Durant asserts himself and wills the team to a win along with Kyrie.
