JINX


This Friday the Thirteenth against the Raptors no Ray,

With ankle swelling he is day to day.

55 years ago, Heinsohn a rookie, not his prime,

Cs won their first NBA title--double overtime.


Three games, three cities in seventy-two hours,

The Cs will need their fountain of youth powers.

Raptors Johnson is tough, Anderson from NBDL,

The latter is 29, wants to prove he can play well.


Cs slow at first, then KG block, Bass shot,

Pierce showing the three point shot he's got.

Q1 Stiemsma's blocks, Bradley cutting to the hoop,

Pietrus is energetic, Rondo-Bradley alley-oop!


Q1 18% shooting for the Toronto team,

Cs end it up 7, cannot lose steam.

Raptors' Kleiza is tough, plays with true grit,

Johnson huge dunk--missed! Cs' Hollins did hit.


'Quis got some minutes, Pietrus for three,

After a long rest, mid Q2 came KG.

7-0 run for the Raptors til KG's hoop,

Cs can't drop to the level of this lesser group.


Raptors didn't show much effort, crowd wasn't in the mix,

Cs starters had rest. At the half, Cs up six.

Cs were outrebounded by ten in Q1 and Q2,

Raptors playing with energy, Cs have to, too.


Q3 Raptors went on a run, Cs sloppy with the ball,

Twice as many turnovers, then asleep they did fall.

Q4 it was Anderson and Johnson--who?

Cs just taking jump shots, forgot what to do.

Cs down 15, halfway through Q4,

Pierce for three,Cs need stops and score.

Pietrus fell hard, on his back not his head,

Cs working, 2:50 left, Raptors now 8 ahead.

(An important stat, in case you missed,

Rondo's 20th game, double digit assist).

18-4 run by the Cs, too late methinks,

Must be the Friday the Thirteenth jinx.
