Celtics' Hearts' (hope their legs) are clearly willing
To make history--they were encouraged by Curt Schilling.
'Melo made his first shot--then KG,
Felton is a problem for every C.
Prigioni scored on his first three,
On no close-out by AB (?).
Knicks went on an 11-0 run,
Shumpert's D so tough early Q1.
Captain P on the three point line did park,
But he's trying to make that shot with no arc.
Of AB's ball handling Doc had his fill,
Mid Q1 in came T. Will.
Prigioni had three threes just in Q1,
KG returned early to stop the Knicks' run.
Two early fouls on 'Melo, to the bench went he,
Chandler and KMart together, rare to see.
Turnovers, tough shooting, Cs down 14 start Q2,
Green twisting, turning, drew a foul--oh, what he can do!
Doc needs a spark, tonight a chance for Lee,
Stole the ball, running hard, playing his good D.
Q2 Cs running hard all the way down the floor,
AB doesn't look confident, only KG can score.
Pierce keeps turning the ball over, he's handling it lots,
Way more turnovers than he has good shots.
AB's come alive, some signs of his D,
Cs walking up the court which Doc hates to see.
Jeff Green For Three, buzzer! ThenThree For JET,
Time for the crowd, which hasn't been into it yet!
Doc says trust each other, move the ball,
'Melo flopped, then Prigioni, both got the call.
1 for 10 from the field is Captain P,
11 turnovers, Cs down 12 to start Q3.
We found out second half Pierce's elbow is sore,
Just one explanation why the Cs couldn't score.
Pierce can always draw a foul with the clock running down,
An answer for Raymond Felton the Cs haven't found.
Two games in this series (history) Cs perfect from the line,
Several Knicks are shooting their threes just fine.
Shooting woes for the Cs, shots and free throws awry,
Pierce and KG getting going--crowd a collective sigh.
Cs went on a 10-3 run,
Cs out of bounds calls? Not just one.
In transition, JET For Three,
Felton lost the ball, then earned a T.
17 Cs turnovers, just through Q3,
Surprised that Crawford we did see.
Cs down 20 to start Q4,
Prigioni and Shumpert the guys who did score?
Another moving screen called on KG,
Looking exhausted, Jeff Green For Three!
Cs went on an 20-0 run!
AB (steals!) showed up to get this done!
AB ANOTHER STEAL! 'Melo answered back.
You can never say it is Heart that these Cs lack!
Cs came all the way back, they got within four,
A valiant effort--needed just a little more.
Green fouled out. Is this the last game for PP?
Sweet moment with Doc--will he retire, KG?
BOSTON STRONG. BOSTON STANDS AS ONE.
Crowd cheering, "Let's Go Celtics," tho the Knicks won.
