Well, the season has ended, can't help but feel blue, 
These Cs have shown class in all that they do.
Through injuries and setbacks the Cs played with heart
During these playoff games, and from the season's start.

Marquis went down, JO's wrist and back, 
Of course we never had the presence of Shaq.
Delonte was hurt, let's remember the harm
To Rondo's elbow-affected his whole arm.

The question is KG, what happens to him, 
If there's a lockout, he should go to a gym, 
Because KG, Ray, too, only for Doc will play,
Celebrate because Doc says he will stay!

Doc says he's competitive and he loves this team, 
He's a Celtic at heart, they all share a dream.
To give it one more try, on success they are sold,
Doc: "what are we if they say the Lakers are old?"

Let's thank all the guys, some of the bench stays maybe,
He better get it together, I'm talking about Baby.
He wants to be in Boston, but says you never know,
He wants to play ball, if he has to go, he'll go.

No Cs lover is a Miami fan, 
But gotta give it to Wade, he was The Man.
He has many skills we cannot diminish, 
It was his play that allowed Lebron to finish.

Thank you Doc and the coaching staff, 
At least Doc's press conferences provided a laugh.
We have learned with this team as four years did pass,
They play with all heart and have so much class.

It is very hard a poem to write
After such a difficult night.
But we've known with these Celtics from the start
Never underestimate a champion's heart.

The last game provided a wonderful lift,
Wanted this to add to my birthday gift.
We will go to Miami with clear minds all,
And our Celtics will have to answer the call.

No matter what, it must be said,
Of Reggie Ray is now 79 ahead.

This was Celtics Ball we love to see, 
Happy Birthday to me.

Even in the playoffs it must be said, 
Of Reggie Ray is 77 ahead.

18,000 people the anthem were singin'
Players and fans the words they were wingin'--
KG a notable performance to start Q1,
Rebounds and scoring, getting it done.

Q1 the Cs' turnovers numbered three,
That fueled Lebron, eight straight points had he.
With a left foot strain, an early exit for Pierce, 
He has to come back, we know he is fierce.

By early Q2 Bibby and Miller for three,
All uncontested--not what we should see.
Rondo's first foul not until Q2
Then Delonte, for three, showed what he could do.

Baby, Delonte, Wafer, Krstic, Green,
Scoring by the latter like we've never seen!
The Cs' bench outscoring the bench for the Heat,
Seeing them come together is better than sweet.

JO on the boards, in the first half he had eight,
He is finding his rhythm, his contribution is great.
How we end each quarter is important indeed, 
Clock violation and sloppiness, we don't need.

KG's third foul at the end of Q2,
It was like the Cs forgot what to do.
Pierce talking to Rondo, information he's gettin'
Probably about the shots that Wade was settin'.

The Cs need to play better to stay alive,
No stellar play, Cs at the half down five.
Need Ray, KG, to score, Rondo to the rim,
The Captain knows what's required of him.

Rondo's back is sore, Pierce's foot is a worry,
This might explain why up the floor they didn't hurry.
Cs looked inspired at the start of Q3,
Rondo flying around, good scoring by KG.

Rondo's passing's been grand, he has great vision,
He's finding open guys, each time a good decision.
Lebron was quiet, Q2 into Q3
But then he went off, which we hate to see.

How the quarter ends, a factor indeed,
All we saw was Lebron with incredible speed.
Baby and Delonte Q4 started well,
Ray's got a bruised chest, against Lebron he fell.

One thing we learned watching the Heat tonight,
Gotta make Wade and Lebron go right.
Cs went on a run, tied the game, eighty each,
Sure not a vacation in Miami Beach.

Then Lebron took over, the Heat handled the Cs' run,
The Cs starters can't seem to get it done.
Miami did what they should, took care of their home,
Now the Celtics must...(almost the end of this poem).

Can't give this up, so it must be said,
Of Reggie Ray is now 75 ahead.

"Defense, defense..." the cry for each team, 
Given the early score, that's how it did seem.
Two Q1 fouls for Rondo, Lebron to stop, 
Then Lebron blocked Rondo, leaping over the top.

Chalmers on the pass to end Q1,
Ray is the only Celtic having any fun.
Rondo's third foul starts Q3,
Delonte gets a tech, for what we couldn't see.

Guess he threw the ball at a guy on the floor, 
Miami shot the tech and added to their score.
Second foul on KG, they are starting to mount,
Also two for Lebron, Bosh, three for Rondo the count.

Cs turnovers too many, must take better care, 
Be patient on offense, wait for the shot to be there.
Q2 Ray Allen for three, KG strong to the hoop,
Delonte and Baby trying to lead the bench group.

Four threes, it's a clinic, who is that guy?
It's James Jones, a Miami native, flying high.
One stat that's horrendous for our Captain so fierce, 
Twice as many turnovers as points first half for Pierce.

Wade came three hours before the game's start,
23 first half points, he is playing with heart.
The Cs seem rusty, they've been off a week,
Celtics Ball, we need defense, then an offensive streak.

Q3 Pierce heated up, Cs a 12-0 run,
Setting up offense, not just one and done.
Turnovers for the Heat, but then they get goin'
Cs need to stay strong, defense shouldn't be slowin'--

Miami "heated" up after a flagrant on JO, 
Flagrant? Really? Announcers thought no.
Pierce rolled the ball up the court, end Q3,
Three! With .1 left on the clock we could see.

Mark Jackson about Rondo, as Heat defense he beats,
"That's the Texas two-step, take 'em to the streets.
Sounds really cool, but what does it mean?
I don't care, Mark Jackson's the Cool Phrase Machine.

Pierce got thrown out, Doc halfway up the court,
Wade initiated contact, all tempers are short.
A seriously bogus call, on Pierce a tech??
The refs must play for the Heat--what the heck!!

22 for 33 threes in the playoffs for Ray, 
Let's hope he inspires the other Cs to play.
In 57 seconds, Q4, Cs 8-0 run,
With Pierce in the locker room, can we get it done?

Wade flew down the court, dove in to row four
On a long pass, the length of the floor.
14 turnovers for the Cs, that's not so bad,
In other games, many more we have had.

38 for Wade, so much energy expended, 
Wish Pierce had been in as this game ended.
The Cs defense started slowly, offense didn't explode,
They say playoffs don't start still someone wins on the road.

With five threes today, it must be said,
Of Reggie, Ray is now 74 ahead.
