Esperons que vous etes bien, Mickael,
In other words, we hope you are well.
With a sore ankle, RAY took himself out tonight,
Of Ryan Hollins may get our first sight.
Long road trip wins/losses the Cs did weather,
Two weeks away bball pulled them together.
Pietrus can't replace Ray's points, but better D,
Solid start for Pierce, Bass and KG.
Led by Pierce's threes, Cs a 12-3 run,
Bass rebounding and scoring, lit up Q1.
At the end of Q 1 Sixers were in the mix,
Hard work Bradley, KG, Cs up by six.
32 points for the Cs, that is the most,
Against the Sixers on the road or as host.
Q2 Pietrus is active, to the hoop no three junk,
Then Pietrus, "Air France" with a monster dunk.
Suddenly loud cheering from the crowd so still,
In came part owners, the Smiths, Jada and Will.
Q2 Sixers took over, Cs couldn't make a shot,
Stretcher for Pietrus for the hard foul he got.
A frightening moment, KG was at his side,
Sasha and Marquis prayerful, some Cs fans cried.
Shooting free throws for Pietrus, Hollins' first night,
Doug Collins makes the choice, that doesn't seem right.
While the Cs kept playing well, albeit sadly,
Limping into the locker room went Avery Bradley.
The Cs started Q3 with a 6 point lead,
Control of their emotions is what they will need.
Rondo to KG--alley-oop.
Gotta admire the spirit of this Cs group.
Sixers went on a 17-0 run in Q3,
Cs shaky but at least Marquis we did see.
No Cs rebounds, plus turnovers galore,
Down by 14 to start Q4.
You can see the Cs have lost their steam,
As they try to play with a decimated team.
Competing tonight maybe didn't do their part,
But you can never question this team's heart.
Sixers released confetti at the end of this game,
After the Pietrus injury, they should feel nothing but shame.
