Thanks to Kevin Garnett’s scoring spree,
the Celtics took the win in Game Three.
A big second frame
put the Sixers to shame,
and gave their homecoming misery.
After a late foul in Game Two,
Garnett came back like veterans do.
He flapped his gums
and beat war drums
and, on the court, led his whole crew.
The Sixers, down a lot at the break
could not find a comeback to make.
Their deficit grew,
and surely they knew
the game was the Celtics’ to take.
