The Cleveland Cavaliers just completed their first, and only, back-to-back-to-back of the season. Three games in as many nights isn't easy for anybody, and due to the lockout shortened season, every NBA team was stuck with one of those this year.

Watching guys limp and hobble out of the locker room on Sunday night it certainly looked like they felt it too. They're now back in action tonight in Detroit against the Pistons, but not before they did get one day off. Luke Harangody, however, doesn't get days off. 

Monday night's series clinching win for the Canton Charge over the Springfield Armor marked the fourth game in as many nights for Luke Harangody. This recent back-to-back-to-back-TO-BACK stretch for Gody included three games against the Armor on April 13th, 15th, and 16th, as well as Saturday's epic showdown with the Washington Wizards.

Harangody scored 16, 26, and 7 points in each of those three NBDL playoff games, for an average of 16.3 points per game. The same number of points that Luke also currently averages as an NBA starter.

In adidition to being a scoring threat at both levels, he's also hitting the glass with a vengence as well. Harangody grabbed 10 boards as you might recall against the Wizards, and even while being completely gassed last night he still found a way to haul in 10 more rebounds during his fourth game in as many nights. He only needed 25 minutes to grab those ten rebounds in the 115-106 Charge win too.

Just imagine what he's about to do in Round Two of the NBDL Playoffs after a couple day's rest.

On Thursday, the Canton Charge will host the Austin Toros in the semifinals of the D-League playoffs. The Toros are reportedly wishing, hoping, and praying the Gody gets recalled by the Cavaliers before then, because if he doesn't they know full well they cannot contain him. He's difficult enough to defend when he's exhausted. At full strength, it's simply impossible. Just ask the Washington Wizards, the NBDL, and the entire Big East Conference if you don't believe me. 

Best of luck to Gody and the Charge on Thursday.
