PLAY...OFF


Game one for the Celtics there will be no Ray,

For the Hawks neither Horford nor Zaza will play.

Playing in the playoffs is "...like sticking your head in the freezer.

It's a rush, man," said KG (don't call him a geezer).



Hawks ran the floor, start they wanted they got,

Hinrich back to back on his three point shot.

KG's shots were off, Pierce with a loud two,

Hawks successful, whatever they tried to do.


Hawks hot like their weather, Cs can't find the hoop,

End Q1 (KG for two!!) 13 point lead Atlanta group.

Pierce hard to the hoop, Stiemsma great D,

Better play by the Cs til Pargo for three.


Four minutes Cs no score til free throws by Bass,

Offensive fouls called on the Cs seems every other pass.

Flagrant foul on Collins when he pulled down Bradley,

Cs good D, more aggressive, need rebounds badly.


Hawks a 14 point lead to start Q3,

Cs start with an alley-oop, Rondo to KG!

Cs within 10, momentary bliss,

Hinrich shooting threes, he just won't miss.


The refs, as always, a major part of this sport,

As they call things differently at each end of the court.

Cs down a dozen to start Q4,

Bass great D and he's starting to score.


Tho there are Cs fans in the crowd, it's getting loud,

At one point Doc's on the bench with his head bowed.

Cs made a run late, Josh Smith played well tonight,

Teague, too, especially when things got tight.


Loose ball, guys on the floor, something unexpected,

Cs foul, Rondo bumped the ref and got ejected!

Stiemsma came in, the sixth foul on Bass,

Further discussion of this game--I'll take a pass.


One thing was clear even with the terrible start.

Still these Celtics play with all heart.
