Third-quarter slumps are key to Clippers' woes

Quote:
As the 1-6 Clippers search for ways to win some more games, the team seems to agree on one key problem: The third quarter.

Too often the Clippers have played well enough to win in the first half only to slump in the third quarter and see the game get away.

Against the Utah Jazz on Saturday, for instance, the Clippers led by as many as 18 points in the first half only to see the Jazz tie the game by the end of regulation. The Clippers did battle through two overtimes but still lost, 109-107.

In the game before that, the Clippers led the Denver Nuggets at halftime, 54-53, and then were outscored in the third quarter, 29-17, on their way to a 111-104 loss to Denver.

Now the Clippers face the unbeaten Hornets in New Orleans on Tuesday, and "we have to get our energy up in the third quarter," first-year Clippers Coach Vinny Del Negro said Monday after a two-hour practice at their Playa Vista training facility.

Re: Third-quarter slumps are key to Clippers' woes

They seemed to have figured it out against Denver though. They kept that lead throughout the game. It's amazing ho competitive this team is wins over: Denver, San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Chicago, New Orleans, Phoenix, and close games against top teams way too numerous to count. I firmly beleive that we are in a very special time. We are playing everyone down to the wire and have two phenoms leading the team.
