"We've won three first quarters, and we're 3-0 [in those games]," he said. "But we've lost nine first quarters. So there is this misconception that the NBA is a fourth-quarter game. Well, that's maybe when the excitement begins. But the first quarter a lot of times dictates how you are going to play.
