Jordan Mickey made his third appearance of the season during garbage time of the Celtics' 113-99 win over the Timberwolves Monday. The rookie drained an elbow jumper for two points on 1-for-1 shooting in his one minute of action.
Mickey's career NBA stat line now stands as follows: 6 minutes, 2-of-3 field goals, 3-of-3 free throws, 7 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 block. If you project that out to starter-minutes (36 per game?) it equates to an average of 42 points, 18 rebounds, 6 assists and 6 blocks. Not bad, right?
Obviously that's not how things work, but Mickey's spectacular efficiency in his small sample of playing time has led to this amusing statistical anomaly:
I'd say Danny Ainge should get on the phone with Golden State and explore a Mickey for Steph Curry deal, but maybe this Luis Montero guy in Portland is a better option?
