Cs' ever-changing starting line-up's an interesting sight:
Pierce, Bass, Bradley, Green and Wilcox tonight.
Five of seven top Cs are injured in some way,
Doc has to re-invent the team every time we play.
Cavs offensive rebound well, turn it over not much,
Hope Green can be consistent, and find his touch.
Two active coaches 400 games as player/coach won,
Doc Rivers is our guy! Cavs' Byron Scott's the other one.
Q1 Zeller came out strong for the Cleveland group,
Cs answered with Pierce--and Green!--hard to the hoop!
Cs' starting five good assists numbers, playing some D,
Bass, Wilcox good energy--and (good for him) Bradley For Three.
T. Will came in as point guard, two early fouls on AB,
Wilcox two early fouls, Shav Randolph we did see.
As always, refs' reviews take five minutes or more,
Even the most diehard fans this tactic does bore.
Cs up 6 to start Q2,
Pierce For Three, fun (and scary)--what Crawford can do.
After a 12 point lead, Cs turnovers and gambles creeping in,
Gave the Cavs opportunities, hard for the Cs to get a win.
Whether rebounding, scoring, catching a good pass,
Cannot underestimate the progress of Bass!
Love Wilcox on the wing, with that beautiful dunk,
Captain P has to get out of his turnover funk!
Cs stopped attacking the paint, up 1 start Q3,
Green got involved, more of Bass we should see!
Cavs --mostly Ellington--came out hot,
Cavs a 17-4 run, Cs can't make a shot.
Cavs were in full control til finally JET For Three,
11-4 run for the Cs, still not much scoring AB.
Cs down 6 to start Q4,
When Crawford shoots it's, "Ugh! No! don't...." Aaah, score!
Gibson is tough, shooting three after three.
When Crawford gets the ball, there WILL be something to see.
Cavs making threes from all over the court,
Cs playing like defense isn't part of this sport.
Cs went on a 21-6 run,
No foul called for Green--what the refs have done!
Bass a season high--JEFF GREEN THE LAST PLAY,
THE CELTICS WIN!! NOT going away!
Wilcox's and Green's heart surgeon, giddy when speaking,
Proud of his "patients," now the Cs are streaking....
