JO out, then in, no Dooling, his knee,
And no Rip Hamilton will we see.
As a starter on Stiemsma Doc took a pass,
KG at center, no JO, instead Bass.
Q1 Cs shots were erratic and short,
.Rondo the only C with energy on the court.
.Each C had a chance at his favorite shot,
Mostly front-rimmed, in the hoop they were not.
The Cs looked sluggish, their heads hung low,
The calls were terrible, the Cs were just slow.
RAY ALLEN FOR THREE, RAY ALLEN FOR THREE,
First half the only bright light we did see.
Back to back hoops were made by KG,
Bass scored, JO took a charge, all in Q3.
Bass an offensive rebound and a three for Pierce.
We need this man to once again be fierce!
Cs had been down twenty, Q3 they played great,
To start Q4 they were down only 8!
Pietrus for three, plus KG and Ray,
The Cs are only one point away!
Around down 7 is where the Cs did hang,
Bulls owe a lot to Rose, Brewer and Deng.
(Not one to complain about every call,
But should Rose be allowed to palm the ball)?
Gotta hand it to the Bulls, they've experience and youth,
They weren't bothered by any Cs, not even The Truth.
Bulls went 20-9 when the Cs were within one,
After that for the Cs there was no more fun.
"Scal-a-brini" brought the crowd to its feet,
While at the end of the game Thibs and Doc did meet.
Cs are now 4-6, not our best start.
At least during this game they showed they have heart.
