HEAT'S OFF **

Took Miami's 2020 Second Round pick to seal the deal--
On Cleveland's part this has a very slimy feel.
They have disrespected Crowder, torpedoed IT;
I feel terrible neither one is still a C.
Wish "our guys" speedy recovery from all this fuss,
As long as Cs vs Cavs games all go to Us!

**Title's a stretch, feeling too much stress 😂
Tied up with Gilbert and this miserable mess....
CELTICS HOORAH!

HIP STIR

A Poetic take on this situation seems too light,
Can't resist--the Cavs are just not right!
LeBaby never welcomed Crowder and IT
(only pleasant-ish words about Kyrie said he).

Cavs' Altman must have panicked, went back for more,
In an effort to fleece the Celtics, take more of our Core.
I guess adding the Clips pick, to get the deal done??
In some ways...neither team will have won.

Seems Cs were forthcoming, but the Cavs can say no--
Many will blame Ainge, tho all medical info we did show.
Cs haters will be united; the worst part I see
Is the terrible toll this has taken on IT.

First crushed by Ainge, getting traded away,
Then Cavs saying too long he can't play.
Whenever he comes back, can it be a showcase year?
IT's value could continue to drop from here ;(

Crowder will find a home, good contract, 3 and D,
Sadly him in Green we'll probably never again see. 
If IT plays for the Cavs, obviously LeBaby's Team--
Who will look at Our IT, as all Heart with a Dream?

He'll be part of LeBaby's squad, a guy on the roster:
Not the IT we know and love--a situation even costlier.
Some team will pay, they won't need that Brink's truck.
Our "Hero" was riding high, and now? What The Luck?

HEART AND SOLE


NBA (Sports) Teams are no longer what they once were;
Players seeking Fame, Money...Management cannot deter.
We used to follow our Teams, intimately familiar with each Guy,
Now that's an illusion, a ruse, dare I say a lie!

We know our Team, its System, its Management Style,
Its Chemistry, its Heart, its Character, all the while.
Teams like the Spurs and of course our Celtics, since the arrival of Brad,
(thanks Ainge) grateful for the Players we have, will have and have had!

We rely on Celtics Pride (past, Ubuntu), on Celtics Ball--
Hope Hayward will enthusiastically answer our call
To be part of Something Special, to live out his Basketball Dream:
Like current and past Players, he should embrace this Celtics Team!
CELTICS HOORAH!

GAME SUR-5?? ...KNOT 😰


Olynyk starts again. Thompson booed here,
For injuring the shoulder of the maybe out Amir.
Cs' first score (after Love): SMART FOR THREE!
Not Love-ing Love. Shooting too early each C.

Cavs a 14-5 run. Fearless Brown's hip pointer's sore,
Says he's good to go if Brad needs him on the floor.
Crowder's in, but hurt, too. OK to play is Amir.
Kyrie is scary. JEREBKO FOR THREE! Lucky he's here!

Surprise! Whining LeBaby! Rozier, in early for Smart:
Cs: TOs, missing shots, Kyrie on the loose, tough start.
Fearless Brown! Rozier! Could do without Korver's three.
Brad said play offense with authority, with purpose on D!

SMART FOR THREE! Rozier! Cs, 6-0 run!
Enough Kyrie. Cs within 16, end Q1.
Cavs franchise record Q (great). Green in. Rozier, steal!
Smart, two quick fouls. LeBaby, Love cryin'--for real?

LeBaby lost the ball. Waaah. Foul on Green??? T??
Crowder! Horford! Rozier! AB FOR THREE!
Fearless Brown! That's our Rook! AB FOR THREE!
Vintage DWill. Travelin' LeBaby. Aggressive AB!

Crowder, foul three. AB FOR THREE! Dunkin' AB!
Cavs franchise record, half. Cs within 18 start Q3.
Ugh, Kyrie! Crowder, foul four?? Brad: MORE D!
AB FOR THREE! Horford! Huh? Horford, foul three?

Olynyk! At last! Starting to get ugly. Need some...D?
Cs TOs. Kyrie is scary-er. OLYNYK FOR THREE!
In case we weren't ill enough, now I feel poorer,
LeBaby beat out MJ as all-time playoff scorer.

Fearless Brown taken down--dirty? Hmm, JR.
Rozier, coast-to-coast! Cs, TOs. Cs game, sub-par ;(
(Great, LeBaby flexing). Cs within 35 end Q3.
Zeller, in. Not a poor sport, but Marv's annoying me ;)

We have seen enough halfway through Q4,
Everyone shake hands, and get off the floor.
Rozier! Green! Mickey. Young. Cs never led at home.
That's a hard line to write--in prose or poem.

GREEN FOR THREE! YOUNG FOR THREE!
YOUNG FOR THREE! Always, HEART WE SEE.

There is hope! We saw great growth of these Cs.
Brad is the Best! Ainge will get help, answering our pleas.
LOVE OUR CELTICS. For me, there are no other clubs.
Tip O' Our Hats to our Season...Let's Go Dubs.

CROWD?
STILL LOUD!
WHAT A RIDE.
CELTICS PRIDE!

CELTICS HOORAH!

“A HERO IS NO BRAVER THAN AN ORDINARY MAN, BUT HE IS BRAVER FIVE MINUTES LONGER." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Isaiah Thomas is our hero. ☘️🏀

Out with a torn hip labrum--surgery?--is IT.
(devastated) Ailing since March, he let no one see.
Prayers Up as he faces his new reality.
Our thoughts are with him, Our Heroic C.

Changes: Brad is back to Amir, at the start.
Green could bring a Bench spark. Also starting, Smart.
Cs should be loose, with house money we're playin',
Fearless Brown, Horford, AB, Smart, Olynyk...just sayin'.

Horford, first score! Cs first lead! AB FOR THREE!
Crowder, STRIP FROM LEBABY! Highlight for me ;)
Def not Love-ing Love. Amir (!)...holding his shoulder. Tangled up with Thompson. Cs shots went colder.

SMART FOR THREE! Zeller, in. Cs ball movement! AB! Crowder! LeBaby, whining. HORFORD FOR THREE!
Rozier, Fearless Brown! Cs within 11 start Q2.
Love missed Antoine W's 3s record for a Q by 1, boo hoo.

No paint points, LeBaby. Green! CROWDER FOR THREE!
Olynyk, Rebound! Cavs not missing. Crowder, foul three.
GREEN FOR THREE! Til Kyrie...Cs a 7-0 run! Cs gritty!
Crowder steal! AB flyin'--score!--behind his back, pretty!

Smart, Strip! Cs, D! Horford! Back in is Amir.
Love-ing Love even less. "Three Reasons" are clear ;)
Crowd booing: OLYNYK FOR THREE! SMART FOR THREE! How many times Love's pass to LeBaby must we see?

Aggressive Smart! Not awful, Cs with 16 start Q3.
Cs shooting too quickly. Marv is annoying me:
LeBaby, unselfish, blah, blah... no word about our D!
Aggressive Horford! Jerebko, in. SMART FOR THREE!

CROWDER FOR THREE! Getting into it, Kyrie/AB.
SMART FOR THREE! Jerebko, foul? Few calls for a C.
Jerebko called Love a flopper, nerve he doesn't lack ;)
Of course, refs missed Love's first shove in his back.

AB FOR THREE! Surprise (hah), now Olynyk, foul three.
JEREBKO FOR THREE! Cs, 26-10 run! Cs, crazy D!
Smart, smart! From 21 down, Cs within 5 end Q3!
JEREBKO FOR THREE! Thompson making his FT.

Jerebko vs Korver, Williams, Thompson...love the Swede!
Providing D, scoring, grit, attitude the Celtics need!
Olynyk, hip, he's ok. Kyrie's scary. SMART FOR THREE!
AB, steal! Smart, silly foul one. TIE! SMART FOR THREE!

Olynyk! Cs, LEAD! Olynyk, Crowder, fouls four.
HORFORD FOR THREE! Cs playing hard all over the floor!
JEREBKO FOR THREE! Kyrie...tie. AB FOR THREE!!
HOLY 🏀! CELTICS PRIDE WON BY THREE!

JUST RHYME--NO REASON 😰

All-NBA Second Team, CELTICS HOORAH! Pride! IT!
Hmm, neither Hayward's nor George's name did we see.
Fultz's high school coach says he's unique, great here.
For tonight: Green with the start, to the Bench Amir.

Horford, D! First score, Kyrie. Early foul, AB.
Rolling around the rim (out), every shot by a C.
Crowder! GREEN FOR THREE! GREEN FOR THREE!
"Gang Rebounding," said Reggie, led by AB's D!

Cavs, 9-2 run. Cs, 8-2 run! Cavs, 12-0 run.
Still not Love-ing Love. Crowd's too quiet. Not fun.
Smart! Fearless Brown! Back Door Beauty, AB!
Cs within 14 start Q2--it's our offense, not Cavs D ;(

LeBaby tore into the refs--surprise, no T!
Fearless Brown, foul three. (5th) T on IT.
Wow,  mad BRAD! No idea why, got a T!
Steals. Blocks. Threes. Rebounds. None by a C.

Jerebko, in. Upside down records broken:
Few Q/half points, TOs, misses...on my tears I'm chokin'.
Have you ever heard the Celtics Crowd BOOING?
NEVER OK. Cavs unbelievable play, the Cs' undoing.

AB FOR THREE! Looking gimpy (hip? ankle?) is IT.
JR, buzzer, NBA record deficit. Cs within 41 start Q3.
Commentators' mocking doesn't make good TV.
(This game is rough enough). Kind of sickening to me....

CROWDER FOR THREE! Strained right hip--out--IT.
Cs, some grit: Horford, Smart! HORFORD FOR THREE!
Smart, foul four. Aggressive AB! HORFORD FOR THREE!
Fearless Brown! Still, Cs, worse: Cs within 46 end Q3.

ROZIER FOR THREE! Mickey, Zeller, Jerebko in.
Fearless Brown's playing like he thinks we can win ;)
ROZIER FOR THREE! Zeller! These Guys showing fight!
Crowd's cheering. These are Pros having a terrible night.

Fearless Brown, loud dunk! Love these Kids, no quit!
Overpowered like this, how do you get over it?
One game at a time, so will say Brad;
Toughest night he, Cs and we Fans have had....
