Jazz guard Burks responds to rebounding challenge from coach
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/19/14) Jazz guard Alec Burks has been a rebounding machine over his last two games, which is a new trend for the fourth-year guard. He pulled down 10 rebounds Saturday against the Raptors and grabbed 14 more Tuesday against the Thunder.
"I challenged Alec when we were in Toronto that that was something he can do and really impact the game," Jazz coach Quin Snyder said, per The Deseret News. "Our guards need to be more physical. What Alec was doing on the defensive glass really was crucial for us. He was the guy who had juice. It was good to see Alec make it a priority with those long rebounds."

Jazz G Alec Burks scores team-high 14 points vs. Mavericks

|(11/7/14) Jazz guard Alec Burks scored a team-high 14 points on 5 of 11 shooting in his team's 105-82 loss to the Mavericks Friday.
The Jazz couldn't keep a hold of the ball in the blowout loss, taking just 68 shots as a team while turning the ball over 21 times. Burks shared the team lead with four turnovers while also recording three assists and two rebounds in 32 minutes. The Jazz will hope to rebound Sunday in Detroit against the Pistons.
|In 2012-13, Jazz guard Alec Burks averaged 7.0 points per contest. He finally got over the hump and doubled that output in 2013-14. He'll be looking to build on that heading into 2014-15. Burks finally broke out of the cage and earned more playing time. He logged an additional 10 minutes of game action and as a result, he took four more shots per game (10.7) than he did the previous season. He appeared in 78 games (12 starts) last season with Utah, averaging 14.0 points, 2.7 assists and 3.3 rebounds in 28.1 minutes per game. Unless the Jazz go with a backcourt of multiple point guards (Trey Burke and Dante Exum), Burks is destined to be the full-time starter this season. He doesn’t give you much outside of scoring, so consider him a solid pick in the later rounds come Draft Day.
