08:15 AM ET 02.26 | P.J. Carlesimo has put himself between a rock and a hard place, benching All-Star center Brook Lopez in the fourth quarter even when the coach thinks it's a bad idea. And yet, Carlesimo continues to do it. Still, the Brooklyn Nets' interim coach doesn't want it to become a trend. "I created the situation and it's not a good situation," Carlesimo said Monday. "So yes, I worry about it that I need to address it and I worry about it that I need to watch what I do going forward." Lopez didn't play in the fourth quarter of Sunday night's 76-72 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. In three of the past four games, he has played just seven seconds combined in the final period.

It would be helpful if the article posted went a bit further and said *why* PJ was doing this.

It's Not How You Start But How You Finish, Bro.

QUOTE(#3):

maybe- but it seems odd to bench arguably your best player

especially with Joe Johnson out recently.
