With the Celtics down big in Utah last night, Jordan Mickey (as well as Terry Rozier, RJ Hunter and James Young) saw roughly three minutes of garbage-time action.  Mickey converted an alley-oop from Rozier (his only field-goal attempt) and blocked two shots in his first NBA playing time since December 21.

For the season, Mickey is now 3-for-4 from the field and 3-for-3 at the free-throw line with three rebounds, one assist and three blocks in nine total minutes played.  The rookie's brief but productive stint Friday actually lowered his league-leading Player Efficiency Rating (PER), although it's still nearly double anyone else's.

Here are the current numbers from ESPN.com:
