Ray is back, starting for Avery B.,
Longtime match-up (40th) Duncan, KG.
At some statistics we'll take a peek,
Spurs 8, Cs 5 game winning streak.
Both teams started out running hard up the floor,
My favorite--when KG over Duncan did score.
Or was it when Pierce past Duncan he blew?
All 5 starters had rebounds, at first led by a few.
Stephen Jackson as a Spur has been playing his best,
Blair's tough. Parker and Rondo outrunning the rest.
All of Q1 two fouls the refs did call,
Both of them on the Cs Captain, The Truth--Paul.
A defensive team, a jump shooting team, the Spurs ain't.
In Q1 they have 24 (of 27) points in the paint.
Cs down 7 to start Q2,
Pavlovic, Stiemsma showed what they can do!
Bradley to the hoop, to the hoop, yep, no stutter,
One of the best in the league as an aggressive cutter.
Spurs bench, not just starters, best at pick and pop,
Their scoring barrage is hard to stop.
Spurs bench outscored their starters, Cs went small,
From all over the floor Spurs shot the ball.
Spurs lead because of rebounds and making more threes,
Q3 Cs down 11--need some plays for Ray, please!
Just as I said that, first hoop by Ray,
And Brandon Bass is starting to play!
Q3 neither team could score, ugly to see,
Then Rondo for three, and Pierce for three!
From 17 down Cs within 4 end Q3,
Bradley brought energy, steals, cutting, great D.
Rondo had a great steal, fed the ball to Bradley,
The way the Cs are playing, they want this game badly!
Cs are juiced, 2:33 left, up two,
Terrible call on Rondo, the crowd yelled, "boo."
46.5 left, the Spurs by 4,
RAY ALLEN FOR THREE, heard the crowd roar!
This game went right down to the wire,
Spurs won, score was one point higher.
