Sixers have owned the Cs this season--and pre-
Our record so far is 0 for 3.
Hurt again by turnovers early Q1,
Rondo--all alone--is getting it done!
Rondo rebounded, alley-oop pass then there for the tip in,
Thought Pierce looked way off, I must have been trippin'.
Had 11 points in ten minutes--that was great,
End Q1, teams are tied at 28.
Holiday right, left, right, then straight to the hoop,
Will Coach Collins ever say he can lead this group?
Just so Doc's instructions were not muddled,
Pierce and KG coached whenever the guys huddled!
At the end of the half, an interesting stat:
Rondo leads with 10 rebounds, how about that!
So many small lead changes we did see,
Cs up 4 to start Q3.
Early Q3, 11-2 run for the Sixers group,
All we got to enjoy was KG's alley-oop.
(On the Sixers bench, with all his hair,
Did you remember, in Philly, Andrew Bynum's there)?
Sixers maintained the lead throughout most of Q3,
Cs too many turnovers and not enough D.
24th career triple double for the Cs Number Nine,
Points, assists and rebounds--that's quite a line.
An emotional Doc because of things he did see,
Like Pierce's pass to the stands instead of to Lee!
Cs down just 2 to start Q4,
(Haven't mentioned JET, he can't seem to score).
Q4, oh what a competitor is Captain P,
HOW MANY Cs' TURNOVERS DID WE SEE?
7.7 seconds left, KG for the tie,
2.7 left, Rondo timeout on the fly!
Hang in there, folks, here comes more rhyme,
KG's thumping his chest--it's overtime!
Six fouls on Jrue, no more game will he see,
Third time tonight, Jeff Green for three!
Air ball by Lee, game went down to the wire,
Cs would have won if the clock didn't expire.
