Greg Oden got some playing time against the Celtics on Tuesday night. He didn't play much. But in just 5:34, the seven-footer did generate a few noteworthy highlights.

In the second quarter, Boston's Jeff Green drove by LeBron James along the baseline and went up for a dunk attempt. But Oden quickly moved over and stuffed him. On Miami's next possession, Oden cleaned up James' miss with a two-handed put-back dunk.

Oden finished wit two points, one rebound and one block.

"I've been looking for opportunities to put him in,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said after the win, per the Miami Herald. “It’s tough infusing a new player into a rotation. He doesn’t lumber around.”
