I really hated the way the Lakers would always try to comeback from a deficit in the fourth quarter.
It's like they didn't play hard until then.

I also hated the pattern the Lakers had during the third quarter, is it just me or did the Lakers have a bad 3rd Quarter most of the time?

Maybe it takes until the 4th for them to finally understand that they need to do something to get back into the game. I hate that too, but that's why we love our Lakers so much... Cuz they can make a comeback, and play tough bball in one quarter...

That is something that not many teams can do, make a 4th quarter run on a regular basis. In fact, that what we were counting on against the spurs, but it just didn't come that last game, at least not to the point that we wanted it to. That’s one thing that is special about the Lakers, their ability to make a come back when necessary. It must have something to do with Phil's offense and defense, because the bulls had the same ability.

Ur right... Players just wanna quit bein down by almost 30 at the end of the 3rd quarter cuz it's that much easier than to strive for excellence. That's why the Lakers always have us on this emotional rollarcoaster, and as loyal fans, we watch the entire game. Witnessing momentum switch is what it's all about!

Maybe the Lakers figure that if they were to play hard at the start of the game all there energy would be gone and they would play like the clippers and lose the game in the 4th quarter.

But it's important to have the same intensity throughout the game, so that our opposition doesnt think they have us beat. Cuz in the long run, that's why they get so big headed, and they lose to us. They think they have us beat, but then we slaughter em!
