Doc's mindset as this Bulls game starts:
Unconventional use of interchangeable parts.
Funny, in red, to see our old friend Nate,
Q1 Bradley's D on him has been great.
Hamilton fouled AB hard, with a trip,
Uncharacteristic (early 2nd foul) for Rip.
AB and Green pushing the pace down the floor.
Just under 4 minutes, Cs doubled the Bulls' score.
Offense coming from AB, Bass and Green,
Offensive foul on Pierce, then on Jeff Green.
Karl Lane is one ref--he disliked us before,
Doesn't stop Jeff Green! Love to watch him score!
Cs up 9 to start Q2,
Lee for three--excited for what he can do.
Butler and Boozer for the Bulls doing well.
Ainge was interviewed--of course, not much to tell.
We have two HOFers, for them he wants success,
So (please!) he'll avoid a Pierce, KG trade mess?
Tough shooting night for our Captain, at last a three,
Still banging around--Joakim Noah and KG.
Bulls went on a 15-3 run,
Pierce took a hard charge--that can't be fun.
Cs couldn't find their offense most of Q2,
JET for three, 20 seconds left: of the Q--first two!
Q2 one of the worst Qs we recently did see,
Cs down 1 to start Q3.
Phantom fouls--4th on Bradley, once again,
Nate Robinson chose to get in his face--then.
Cs hanging around, Bulls have turnovers more,
Both teams working hard but it's ugly on the floor.
Back and forth tie for a while, Bulls an 8-0 run,
Cs season low 8, down 6 Q3's done.
Early Q4 finally KG did score,
Good steal Bass, good spin move, after running the floor.
Great block by Green, Butler lost the grip,
Cs disrupted yet another, another, another Bulls trip.
Number Eight Jeff Green!! Right to the hoop--
Plus JET (for three!)and Bass lit up this group.
Bradley--on Noah!!--played great D.
Ugh, Pierce...wait...The Truth For Three!
5 seconds lapsed--Cs couldn't get the ball in,
Next play Cs milked the clock, KG's shot went in!
Same ref called 6th foul on Bradley, a margin so thin,
Cs stepped up!! By 2 CELTICS WIN!
