by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

It was Aldridge's first game back on the court since suffering a torn tendon in his thumb earlier in the week. He grabbed nine rebounds and dished out three assists.

Jazz guard Trey Burke impresses coach coming off the bench
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:55 am ET) Jazz point guard Trey Burke may be coming off the bench for Utah, but it's not keeping him from being productive. In 26 minutes, Burke scored 19 points on 7 of 13 shooting, including 4 of 8 from 3-point range, in Utah's 108-73 win over the Nets Saturday.

"I was locked in from the start and I was looking at ways to attack the defense before I even got out there," Burke said.

Coach Quin Snyder said he was able to anchor the defense well Saturday.

"He is one of the guys that's finding a good balance between scoring and playmaking," Snyder said. "The other thing I thought he did is he guarded. When your point guard is at the point of the attack, is tough-minded defensively and willing to talk, that anchors your whole defense."

In two straight games coming off the bench, Burke is averaging 14.5 points 2.5 assists and two rebounds.


Jerami Grant scores career-high 16 points in losing effort Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:27 am ET) 76ers forward Jerami Grant scored a career-high 16 points on 5 of 10 shooting from the field in Saturday's 101-83 loss to the Grizzlies.

Grant also shot 2 of 4 from 3-point range and 4 of 8 from the free throw line in 26 minutes. Coach Brett Brown is liking what he is seeing from the rookie.

"(He's) our poster child at the moment. Jerami's work ethic and the fact he's getting minutes is helping him grow as a player," Brown said.
