Tommy says Cs have determination, "...they have poise."
Always love the championship heart of this group of boys.
Old friend, Scalabrine, is part of the Cs crowd,
He's an active Bulls player, is that allowed?

It's 55 degrees at the Garden, a trick kind of neat,
Because that team from Miami is used to the "heat."
Off the bench is Bosh, Haslem with the start,
The Cs crowd, The Jungle, has a major part!

Ray first to the hoop, then Chalmers for three,
The Cs answered with a sweet shot by KG.
Battier for three, Lebron charged the hoop,
Ray has the first turnover of this Celtics group.

A steal by Rondo, block by Pierce we did see,
Highlight: alley-oop, Rondo to KG.
Foul and tech on Chalmers, mixed it up with Ray,
Who missed the free throw--then Pierce's fallaway!

Heat, mostly Lebron, went on a 10-0 run,
Transition shots on Cs turnovers during Q1.
Cs down 10, Wade's first field goal started Q2,
Rondo-KG alley-oop (cheap rhyme) number two.

Dooling cut to the hoop, brought with him the D,
From the corner--you guessed it--RAY ALLEN FOR THREE!
Bosh is blocking and rebounding, Lebron keeps scoring,
As his field goal numbers through the Garden roof are soaring.

Bass made a field goal, it rolled and rolled around the rim,
Pierce next time up the court, 3rd foul on him.
Bass nice hook, Rondo, hesitation, nice shot,
Cs must stop everyone else because Lebron is hot.

Chalmers ran into Rondo, hard foul on Number Nine,
Who did two knuckle pushups to show he is fine!
Lebron 30 first half points, Rondo 19,
Have I mentioned tonight can't stand Mike Breen?

.3 left Q2, terrible call on Bass,
On calling Battier bumping Rondo the refs did pass.
Cs down 13 to start Q3,
Need more from KG and Captain P.

Tech on KG, after his shot he tapped the ball,
Doc and crowd went nuts--a taunting call?
Tech on Lebron, make up for the one on KG?
In important games, those techs are silly to see.

End Q3 Lebron 41, rest of the Heat 33,
Cs still down 13, need help from Captain P.
Where has the Cs' bench been? I am not fooling,
Sure could use the D of 'Quis and Dooling.

Now that I said that, saw Dooling in Q4,
Just one of those nights--the Cs cannot score.
10:03 left Q4 til first free throws Captain P,
Heat lead keeps growing, this is hard to see.

Cs winning in six games would've been a piece of heaven,
Instead Saturday in Miami, see you at Game 7.
