Hey, the 3rd Quarter Matters Too!

If you saw the game tonight, you probably saw the graphic about how the Wizards haven't been able to get halfway through the 3rd Quarter without calling a timeout in the last six games.  Tonight, the trend continued after the Bulls ripped off a 10-2 run that forced Tap to call a timeout with 7:47 to go.

I don't know if it's poor halftime-adjustments by the coach, a lack of listening from the players, or a little bit of both, but it's one of the issues that needs to be addressed by the new coaching staff next season.  Too many good efforts this season have been ruined by sloppy starts to the 3rd Quarter.
