If I am reading NBA.com correctly, the Cs are middle of the pack among NBA teams in 1Q =/- at -0.1 overall, 8th in the 2Q, 6th in the 3Q, but 20th in the 4Q with a +/- of -0.5.This team continues to start games lethargically, dig itself a huge hole, and then scramble to try to climb out of it.
The Cs have really sucked in the 4Q. A few fun stats: We know Marcus hasn't shot well in the 4Q; however, interestingly he leads the Cs in 4Q +/-. JT has 28 TOV in the 4Q; JB has 24. Kemba has shot 26.8% from 3P and 34.2 overall in the 4Q. Note that Theis was 2-13 from 3P in 4Q and JB is 24-76 (31.6%). TL is a team low -66 in 4Q.
Lots of blame to go around but at the end of the day, the reason the Cs are near .500 and not near the top of the standings is because they have played a league high 33 Clutch games and they have lost a league high 21 of them, due to the fact that they have the 5th worse ORtg overall in clutch situations.
