HIT THE ROAD, JACK



(Blazers game) Rondo, by Camby, in the eye got a poke,

Wanted to wear shades today, this is no joke.

But Joey Crawford said "no," because can't see his eyes,

No end to Cs's obstacles this ref will devise.



Game's hotly contested, not for records, but for history,

Wilcox is out, his cardiac woes a mystery.

The Cs biggest weakness, the proof is resounding,

Playing small, now smaller ball--it is rebounding.


With all the injury challenges the Cs face in this sport,

At the end of Q1 Pietrus limped off the court.

Cs down by ten to start Q2,

Move the ball, play together...Doc says Cs must do.


Joey Crawford gives a phantom timeout to Blake,

Rightfully (announcers agree) a furious Doc this did make.

Cs playing good D, Lakers turning over the ball,

Kobe elbowed Ray, foul on Ray was the call!


Next play Kobe got a tech, this season number eight,

Doc yells at his guys that hero ball is not great!

Lakers have 7 turnovers more, but Cs outrebounded by 9,

Half Cs down 2, Rondo's three at the buzzer so fine.


Steal by Pierce, hoops Bass and Rondo, start Q3,

From down 15, first lead the Cs see.

Love to use that Celtics word "fierce,"

As double Ts called on Metta and Pierce.


Q3 each time up the floor, the teams the lead contest,

Lakers helped most by "...formerly called Artest."

Lakers forced more Cs turnovers, Cs must not resort,

To fewer passes and long jump shots all over the court.


Walter Ray stuck in the corner, tripled and doubled is he,

(You know the line) RAY ALLEN FOR THREE!

During a game like this there are easy rhymes,

In Q3 the lead changed a stunning eight times.


Q4 Pietrus, tho' gimpy, for energy no lack,

As evidenced by his very athletic putback.

Announcers said Ray was off, unusual to see,

Then (you know the line) RAY ALLEN FOR THREE!


Four minutes left in Q4 for the Cs first free throw

In the half as aggressively to the hoop the Cs go.

For years we have watched Ray on Ko-be,

A thing of beauty, RAY ALLEN FOR THREE!


15.5 left, Bynum puts the Lakers up three,

Very tough ending if you are a C.
