Simple question in your own opinion which is more important. You can make a statement straight out of halftime and take the lead and/or extend a lead or being down in the 4th take the lead or extend it but waste more energy.

I always thought the quarter that ends the game is most important but I guess there are other possibilities

I always thought the score at the end of the game mattered most :shrug:

4th quarter is remembered most because it's the last one. A lot of idiots like to refer to it as the only meaningful one.

Thats what I mean though alot of the time 3rd quarters impact the outcome of the game more than the 4th and they can also lead to great 4th quarters.

if you do your jobe well and are leading by 10 at the third you shouldnt lose the game.

Unless someone decides he has to take every shot in the 4th and doesnt make them.

It shouldn't really matter when the points come in. A 4th quarter surge resulting in a loss is still a loss.

I agree with the idea that you can win or lose the game in any quarter but I'll rank the Quarters as follows:

4th - Simply put if you can't finish a team or come back on them you can't win
1st - Gain momentum and put yourself in a position to win
2nd - 3rd - either one you need to sustain the momentum from the 1st or get yourself back into the game so you have a chance in the 4th.

i personally find from my playing days and most games watched. that 90% of games are won and lost in the 3rd quarter. good teams win it then and don't let teams back in. obviously with all the sarcastic comments it is better to be leading in the 4th when the game is finished but 3rd is most important in my books.
rank 3rd,1st,4th and 2nd.
you can have a poor 1st and 2nd and still have time to comeback..

The team that leads after the 4th wins. So I say 4th. :)
