Jordan Mickey continues to lead the NBA in Player Efficiency Rating

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.
