A Basketball Game

On Saturday, we had a basketball game. We played the Celtics. The first couple of quarters we were ahead. Until they started to make all of their three pointers. The last three minutes of the game we were tied at 26. I could feel the sweat running down my face. Their forward was holding the ball, running out the clock. He shot. The ball bounced off the rim. I got the rebound. The clock was winding down. 10...9...8...7...6...5...4...3. I shot a three. 3...2...1. Beeeeep. The was circling the rim and then through the hoop. We won!
