Use the Force Luke..

"Luke...use the force..."
And he did. Luke Harangody may as well have been fired out of a cannon tonight. He was on from the minute he hit the floor-scoring, grabbing rebounds and blocking shots. His career-high 17 points helped the C's to an easy 122-102 victory over the Raptors at the Garden tonight.

Harangody, who has seen increased minutes due to the KG injury, is a guy that Doc has liked due to the energy he brings. And he really brought it tonight. He hustled his way to 11 boards and also had 2 blocks.

Celts had the pedal to the metal from jumpstreet tonight, perhaps energized by the pregame news that I reported over at RedsArmy just before tip-off. Doc announced that Perk would return to practice next week, and that Kevin Garnett should be back in the starting-lineup by Monday or Wednesday.

Paul Pierce led the C's tonight with 20 points. Celtics will now fly to Chicago where they will face the Bulls tomorrow for the 2nd half of a back-to-back. Tip-off is at 8pm.
