Back to back games, same building, doesn't happen much,
Last time was 1972 it happened as such.
Just like Kobe last night was wearing his mask,
Chris Paul, too--broke his nose, don't ask.
Teams neck and neck throughout Q1,
Chippiness was evident from the opening run.
Don't worry about the bench being in a funk,
Bradley great D then a stunning dunk!
After a whistle, the ball wasn't in play,
KG decided to dunk the ball anyway.
Not in my house, Jordan made it clear,
Double techs--it is testy in here.
The calls on the Cs are terrible indeed,
Tech on Doc, gave the momentum Clips need.
Soon the Cs' turnovers came in gobs,
Clippers were aggressive and started those lobs.
Clippers got it going, mostly Mo and Blake,
At the end of the half a 9 point lead they did take.
Cs started Q3 the way they started Q1,
Maintaining their composure, getting the job done.
Cs so energetic, rebounds and steals,
Alley-oop Rondo-Bass, loving how it feels.
Lots of jawing, Jordan and KG,
(My favorite line) RAY ALLEN FOR THREE.
RAY ALLEN FOR THREE as Q3's almost done,
The Cs start Q4 up by one.
Once Ray Allen scored his first three point,
Tho' he fell on his elbow, he lit up this joint.
After Cs 9-0 run, Clips went 17-3,
Cs pull even, consecutive shots by KG.
13-2 run by the Cs, teams scoring in spurts,
An aside: Chris Paul kicked Griffin right where it hurts.
59 seconds left, turned ankle for Ray??
Back from the locker room, ready to play!
Cs needed this game, played like it til it was done,
So far on this road trip they are one and one.
If during this trade season you are becoming jaded,
Rest assured, said Ainge, Rondo will not be traded.
