Lucky Luke Harangody active for the 1st time

After two sluggish games to start the season, Jermaine O’Neal [1] – playing with torn cartilage in his left wrist – is getting the night off against the New York Knicks [2]. Rookie Luke Harangody is active for the first time this season in three games.

O’Neal was just 1-for-5 in the first two games, scoring just three points. Harangody, drafted in the second round (52nd overall) last June out of Notre Dame [3], was named to the AirTran Airways All-Summer League first team after averaging 16.6 points and 6.8 rebounds in July.

The Celtics [4] will stick with the same starting lineup of Ray Allen [5], Rajon Rondo [6], Shaquille O’Neal [7], Paul Pierce [8] and Kevin Garnett [9] as they look to bounce back over .500 against New York.
