JAZZ HANDS

No Mickey (shoulder), No JBrown (knee)--
6'9 Bentil, Yarou the tallest Cs we'll see.
Two 7-footers, one 6'10 for the Jazz
Who knows what Pleiss, Fofana or Lyles has?

Très bien, Yabusele, for either team first score.
Is it an optical illusion? Refs, there are...four?
Lyles is hot. Jazz a 9-0 run.
MILLER FOR THREE! Cs a 15-4 run.

Bentil! Thornton! All tied start Q2.
Some Cs made threes, I don't know who!
Brad is talking (great)! Many Cs new to me.
Rozier, 6'1, cuts and spins--fun to see!

Being cut by summer teams, by all, is feared.
Shirts say "Boston" not "Celtics"--that seems weird.
Cs within 3 to start Q3.
Cs 8-0 run on YOUNG FOR THREE!

Pinkston, Nader, (the other) Thornton, Walden, more, 
Cs up 5 to start Q4.
BENTIL FOR THREE! Hard work every guy--
Trying to be on an NBA roster, that's why!

Jazz a 12-4 run, Rozier hanging tough.
Yabusele is big and can run well enough!
Cs great D, their bodies are everywhere--
Above the rim? Oui, Yabusele is there!

Rozier great ball handling! YOUNG FOR THREE!
Young's worked hard since '14 when he became a C.
Cs by 7, at the Kids we got a peek.
They all worked hard for this Cs' 2-0 Streak!

Cs UP
🏀

Cs UP (Sixers)


During the regular season--and tonight--it's clear:
Announcers can't distinguish between Hunter and Rozier.
Simmons vs JBrown, Number One vs Three--
Ben to the locker room, all too familiar for Phillie.

Summer League is the time for the Kids to play.
JBrown: "Next time, they might get out of the way."
Il y a de l'espoir pour Yabusele, we'll see.
Bet Jaylen Brown will play more like One than Three!

Thrilled with Horford, a Man with Heart.
Cs are a TEAM. He'll be a huge part!
As for Durant, on himself he did not bet--
He'll rely on the 73-9ers his first ring to get.

"Wow...Really...." Said Crowder. Best line goes to PP:
"If you can't beat um [sic], join um." (always a C)!
When the noise stops, Cs will be better than all right--
In the meantime we beat the Sixers by 8 tonight!

SLIP-LANTA

I tuned in--late ;(--during the Cs' 8-2 run!
Cs up 5 when Q1 was done!
There was SMART FOR THREE! SMART FOR THREE!
Rozier was good. More  Olynyk we did see.

Hawks TOs. Struggling Sully. SULLY FOR THREE!
Turneround! Spin! Run at Korver (no three)!
Four minutes plus, the Hawks didn't score.
Second start Jerebko--been great on the floor!

Hawks two threes in a row, a 13-2 run.
Harlan and Reggie seem excited--that's not fun.
18 point swing, Cs tried a two-three zone,
Bazemore, Teague started winning all alone.

IT, NO POINTS!? Cs within 8 start Q3.
Phew! IT score! (announcers [Harlan] buggin' me)!
TURNEROUND FOR THREE! 3rd foul on IT.
Sully, best offense in a while, pretty good D.

Hawks an 18-1 run (again). Arguing calls are the Cs--
Refs aren't at fault for the Hawks making threes.
Cs 10 TOs Q3, more than field goals made.
Just what we need, Harlan and Miller throwing shade.

CROWDER FOR THREE! Hawks highest Q so far.
Cs within 27, for Q4 a high bar.
Schröder a Tech. Huh? Silly--for bothering IT.
What a rough game if you are a C.

IT tweaked his ankle, right to the locker room.
Hope he wanted out tonight. We can't take more gloom.
Oh, Young is still here. Hawks' Humphries, once of the Cs,
First minutes, playoffs, made consecutive threes.

They say a minor ankle sprain for IT
(I would have left, too, if I were he).
This loss is so tough, the math's too hard to do.
Shippin' Out To Boston 🎵🎶 Best Fans/Crowd, it's true....

I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH JON BARRY....

Besides the obvious problems the Cs had last night,
Having to listen to Jon Barry just didn't seem right!
Celtics struggled with shots, couldn't find their threes--
Jon Barry found humor in the plight of the Cs.

He was upbeat and delighted with each Hawk play
And oddly silent when things went the Cs' way.
In the second half the Celtics made a classic run,
That felt like the Heat game--wish this time we'd won.

In that terrible moment when down went AB,
Jon Barry displayed his poorly hidden sense of glee.
He needs to research, at least the starting ten--
AB "couldn't shoot in '09 playoffs," he was drafted 2010!

He needs to show respect for the Fans and the NBA;
Never again will I view Jon Barry the same way.
These players work hard, there is NEVER a time
To LAUGH (??) at their efforts, an announcer's crime.

To be so one-sided when calling a game
Makes Jon Barry look bad, ESPN the same.
