The Nets started out with a bit of a lead, 

But they couldn't land all the shots they need.

With offense that fills a team with sorrow, 

In and out shots, Petro, Outlaw and Morrow.


Krstic has great hands, plus he runs the floor,

Of a big--new or not--we couldn't ask more.

Then Green and the new guys seemed to have fun,

As they ended Q1 with a 14-0 run.


Q2 the Nets played with much more fire,

The Cs had trouble getting their lead up higher.

In fact the Nets took back the lead,

Calls went their way, plus they showed some speed.


Baby's very efficient, and he knows his role,

From his rebounds and jumpers to the ball he stole.

Ray the Cs high scorer in the first half mix, 

Q2 ends, Cs up 38-36.


Q3 KG, then Pierce hard to the hoop,

What a thrill--Pierce to KG for an alley-oop.

Cs fans all breathed a sigh of relief when

Rondo's ankle just needed to be taped again.


On a 7-0 run the Nets end Q3,

Not the Cs' defense we like to see.

To add to some defense, some offense we need,

The Nets end Q3 with a six point lead.


Q4 the Nets quickly run the lead to ten

Mostly because they're at the foul line again and again.

And because they have made almost half their threes

An insurmountable lead they started to seize.


Then Pierce came back in, tried to get his guys goin'

The reasons he's Captain are always showin'.

Baby's hustle play, then a hoop from Green,

KG's steal--he's just a defensive machine.


Again, it's Baby, offensive rebound we needed,

This Celtics team doesn't want to be defeated.

Nets hang tough, won't let the Cs back in it, 

The Cs are down four, just under a minute.


Williams made a three, of confidence no lack 

Cs still have trouble on second of back to back.

No over analysis, no wild intrigue,

Looks like the Cs suffer from mental fatigue.


You know, as always, it must be said

Of Reggie Ray is now 33 ahead.
