Can you imagine how Paul Pierce must feel?

The season hasn't started, he's bothered by that heel.

No appearance tonight, nor Sunday, Tuesday, too

We'll see what Pavlovic and Marquis can do.

Does anyone know what DMarsh did mean

He said we could still trade Rondo by March Fifteen?

(A deal with some "warm" teams, he wouldn't tell,

Inspiration for Rondo to keep playing well).

KG "banged his head," then waved at the crowd,

The cheers at The Garden were so very loud.

Cs started on fire, there were blocks all around,

Gotta love the energy they seem to have found!

The plan for KG is five, five, five,

Minutes, that is, so he can survive!

66 games in a hundred twenty-four days,

Doc will mix his rotations in effective ways.

Q2 sees Stiemsma early, with KG on the floor,

Bradley's shots will soon fall, his defense means more.

Ray did his usual, quick turn and shoot,

We had the pleasure of KG's straightaway to boot.

Stiemsma's rebounding, scoring, getting a rhythm,

Looks like the Cs will want to stay with him.

Preseason Game One he had the winning shot,

Tonight he is showing us what more he's got.

Raptors gathered themselves, then a steal by Bass,

Eventually he'll handle Rondo's bounce pass.

The Cs closed out the half, Rondo had the ball,

Fifteen points, made free throws, he answered the call.

KG, Rondo, JO, Pavlovic and Ray,

Started off the second half this way.

JO blocking with his left hand and then his right,

He is showing he's committed and ready to fight!

Halfway thru Q3 things got rocky,

Raptors started to score and they got cocky.

Many mistakes by the new guys, hard for them to gell,

It will take time and experience for them to play well.

Look at the Cs' bench, a glorious sight to see,

A guy shouting about Defense--it was KG!

At the end of Q3 the Cs went on a run,

And started to look like they were having fun.

Q4 Bradley beat the shot clock, was able to score,

His defense was awesome, he was all over the floor.

Great experience for the bench, against each Raptor starter,

They can measure their progress and will have to work harder.

DeRozan fouled Bradley because he stole the ball,

Then stepped over him--no taunting call?

Sweetney came in, great offense has he,

Doc's trying all combos to see what will be.

Sweetney scored, wild cheering from the crowd,

But the Cs on the bench--they clapped most loud.

Lots of steals and energy, the new guys got it done,

Whether he admits it, Doc must be glad we won!

The season is soon starting, I am so glad,

"I AM A CELTIC," don't you love the new ad?
