STIRRING UP A HORNETS' NEST
JO involved early, then RAY ALLEN FOR THREE,
Can JO handle the pressure? We'll soon see.
Stiemsma with a block, then score, then a block,
These are words that warm the heart of Doc.
Okafor averaging double double all career,
Thought it should be noted so I mention it here.
Hornets created a "buzz," with an 11-2 run,
Cs down 6 at the end of Q1.
Q2 huge Hornets run, Cs feeling queasy,
Homecoming for Bass, he's from the Big Easy.
RAY ALLEN FOR THREE, then Rondo a driving two,
Offensive foul on Ray?? What are the refs trying to do?
11 free throws for the Hornets, for the Cs there are none,
Four minutes left in the half, Rondo finally gets one.
Stiemsma comes to life, with blocks so fine,
At the end of Q2, Cs are down 9.
The young official in the house is ruining the Cs night,
The way he is calling fouls just isn't right.
RAY ALLEN FOR THREE, Belinelli from farther away,
Cs put their heads down and started to play.
Cs kept getting the lead down to nine or eight,
Seems it was--for the third time--too little too late!
Doc's furious with the officiating, easy to see,
Cs still down 9 at the end of Q3.
Bass strong to the hoop to start Q4,
For the Cs, the appearance of Johnson and Moore.
The Hornets swarmed, they weren't fooling,
Only bright moment, clock running down, three by Dooling!
Of the three games so far, this is the worst we've seen,
Three games in four nights too tough on The Green?
The Cs will pull it together, stick around for the ride,
0 and 3? Never underestimate Celtic pride.
Coach Monty Williams is one of Doc's closest friends,
None of that matters til the basketball game ends.
