CELTICS GET “POPPED” BY THE SPURS, in the final seconds 😰

Cs (and snow) at Spurs, first of road games, three;
Our home stand momentum we need to see.
Kyrie’s last masked night; Morris, Fearless Brown in-
Latter will wear cool (!) goggles. Baynes, not Morris, will begin.

Spurs have a winning record against every team-
Hmm, they should win every championship, doesn’t it seem?
No Kawhi (quad). Parker and Ginobli will play;
Plus they have Aldridge, Mills, Danny G., Gasol, Gay.

Fearless Brown, Horford, Tatum, Baynes, Kyrie-
Tatum, Horford, D! Fearless Brown! KYRIE FOR THREE!
Tatum, rebounds! Crowd quiet on Cs’ 11-0 run!
KYRIE FOR THREE! KYRIE FOR THREE! (no jinx) Fun!

Pop, T-to inspire his group?
“All-dridge” the lone Spur at the hoop.
Mills, always moving. Tatum! KYRIE FOR THREE! 
Pop worked the officials ➡️ 6 straight calls they see.

Smart! Rozier! 59% shooting (vs 46), Cs up 5 (Kyrie 17), start Q2!
ROZIER FOR THREE! Rozier, hustle! Rozier-showing all he can do!
MORRIS FOR THREE! Ball movement! TATUM FOR THREE!
The refs?? Atrocious! Kyrie, Rozier, steals! Amazing Kyrie!

Spurs ball? What happened? Cs within 1 start Q3.
Spurs first lead. Cs slowed. Ridiculous calls since Pop’s  T.
Fearless Brown! Cs a little sloppy. Baynes, Horford, D!
“All-dridge,” foul three. Corner shots Brad wants to see. 

Horford! No calls for Smart. KYRIE FOR THREE!
Smart to Fearless Brown, alley-oop! Cs, 15-4 run...and D!
Fearless Brown, loud tip! Baynes, took a hard hit did he?
Cs gathered themselves after rough Q2! Cs up 5 end Q3!

Smart, foul four (it was). Tatum, double digits, fifteen straight!
Gasol is big. Ginobli doesn’t seem 40. Kyrie is great ;)
Tatum, rebounds! FEARLESS BROWN FOR THREE! 
Kyrie slow to get up, gave thumbs up, banged his knee.

Smart! Ginobli flew into Smart (again), on Smart foul six?!
These terrible calls are a problem the League needs to fix.
TATUM FOR THREE! Back and forth is the lead!
KYRIE FOR THREE! Rozier, steal! Ginobli...indeed ;(

First to score over 30 vs the Spurs? Kyrie!
Four more points we would have loved to see.
Kyrie for...nope. Just one game, one night-
Both teams (and the refs) put up a thrilling fight

Looks uncomfortable when he has to score.

“YOU ARE ONLY AS GOOD AS YOUR TEAM.” ~Dominique Wilkins, Atlanta Hawks, 1982-1994

Cs in Atlanta, Fearless Brown’s, Trevin Steede’s home-
It seems inappropriate to make this part a poem:

***Prayers up for Jaylen Brown on the loss of his best friend, Trevin Steede. Our hearts go out to Trevin’s loved ones.***

Hawks near the top of the League shooting the three
(ask the Kings!). Cs will need some serious D.

“WHO WAS THAT MASKED MAN?” ~constant Lone Ranger refrain

Cs in Brooklyn. Fearless Brown, Tatum, Morris, Horford, Kyrie-
Nets, first score. TATUM FOR THREE! Then Tatum thru their D!
Kyrie is back (minor facial feacture), two weeks of mask for him;
Has used one three times before, hope no loss of rhythm.

Fearless Brown! Morris! Cs, 12-0 run on KYRIE FOR THREE!
and...TATUM FOR THREE! Ball movement, sharing, every C!
Nets, 8-0 run. Tatum, foul trouble. THEIS FOR THREE!
Fearless Brown, steal, jam! No more mask, wishes Kyrie!

Oh, Mosgov is here. FEARLESS BROWN FOR THREE!
Baynes IS the Rule of Verticality! One of the best is he.
KYRIE FOR THREE! 46% shooting (vs 41), Cs up 9 start Q2! 
Lots of comparisons to Pierce (early?) for what Tatum can do.

Nets, 22-5 run (14-0). Nets first lead.
Kyrie, score; pass to Ojeleye...rhythm we need!
Horford! Cs in control, then not so much-tie start Q3.
Even, rebounds. Cs, low assists. Wow, Morris from Kyrie!

Bodies everywhere! Cs (brief) lead on MORRIS FOR THREE!
Fearless Brown! Block! This is the pace Nets like to see.
Horford! Tatum, steal! HORFORD FOR THREE! Cs, 15-2 run!
Smart comes in, gets aggressive, offensive (!!) things done!

Kyrie removes the mask after every play!
For two weeks on his face will it stay? 
Theis, 
Again, nice!

Q3, last 6 minutes, Cs, 19-6 run.
Cs up 9 when Q3 was done.
Morris! Energized Nets. Nets, 7-0 run.
Cs’ Bench getting pounded...not fun.

Morris! Cs, D! Larkin, steal! Cs Fans loud,
Maybe because Donnie Wahlberg’s in the crowd?
MORRIS FOR THREE! Cs, 13-2 run!
Nets, threes, Crabbe, another one? 

Kyrie! Tatum, dribbling, then that crazy spin;
Kyrie fumbles the ball, gets it and the shot goes in!
All five starters double figs. Fearless Brown-Tatum, alley oop.
Cs, energetic, young talent-gotta love our Group!

Great drinking game if anyone should ask:
Throw one back whenever Kyrie removes his mask 🍺
Horford, double double! Tatum,  lock! Fearless Brown, steal!
CELTICS WON BY 7, (no jinx) this Team is for real!
