Celtics 84, Sixers 81

Philadelphia’s chances looked bleak
as it sought to end Boston’s streak.
But with the lead late,
the Sixers saw fate,
as the Celtics, by game’s end, hit peak.

Ray Allen, with a pair of free throws,
gave Boston the lead with 2 minutes to go.
Then Paul Pierce’s jumper
put Philly in a dumper –
and a deficit to big to overthrow.

But Philadelphia, one night before,
lost to the Bulls by a lobsided score.
The Sixers’ progress
shows when they impress
the league’s best on their current road tour.
