Havlicek was drafted 50 years ago today,
(An aside before the Bobcats and Cs play).
'Melo and "LinSanity," the Knicks were on fire,
Bulging disc like last year, out indefinitely, Stoudemire.
Doc: "KG most reluctant offensive superstar I've...seen,"
Number Five plays the five with skills so keen.
KG and the Cs, back to back, please no fatigue,
Bobcats have Biyombo (19), youngest in the league.
Bradley can cut all over the place,
Then shoot a three or dunk in your face.
Coach Paul Silas--with the Cs--3 titles he won,
Bobcats' Henderson is the old Cs' Henderson's son.
Q1 KG was tough, along with Bass, Pierce, Rondo,
Stiemsma came in, GoldiBlocks I am (cheap rhyme) fond o'.
End Q1 Dooling for three, Rondo to Hollins alley-oop,
With Stiemsma's great blocking, 18 point lead Cs group.
Early Q2, Walker, Mullens--Cs lead cut to five,
As Doc tries to figure what rotations will thrive.
Bobcats' Williams, White and bench having a good night,
Halftime Cs up 2--18 point lead gone, what a fright!
Bradley rebounded--hard to the hoop--scored--free throw,
He doesn't just play D, good offense he can show.
Maggette on Pierce, he was starting to unravel,
His first field goal attempt (Q3) ended with a travel.
The game got chippy, the refs messed up Q3,
3:31 left, Pierce got a rest, in came KG.
Cs start Q4 up 7, hope no more funk,
Aaaah,, the beauty of KG's monster dunk!
5th foul on Bradley, immediate make up call,
Walker's hard foul on Pierce, they both did fall.
Cs season high free throws attempted, early Q4,
Dooling playing good defense on the floor.
Pierce is a warrior, 36 points had he,
Bass rebounds, Rondo's assists, 24 points for KG.
This Cs win (by 7) the team a boost it will give,
As they tie the Sixers to lead the Atlantic Div.
