Utah Jazz end of season Jam Sessions Part 5: Getting drained

I asked the guys and gals some questions. You'll get a new one each day. Enjoy. We love Jam sessions here at SLC Dunk. It makes sense as we're the Utah Jazz, the only music related team in the league (unless you think Thunder is music). So for the end of this season I asked the crew seven questions. You'll get a new one each day all week long. Hope you enjoy these. . #5: Was there something that just drained you as the season went along?

Jazz notes: Long heaves hurt Alec Burks’ statistics

How many times have you seen it? The ball is inbounded at the end of a period and the player heaves a three-quarter court shot — but just a split second after the buzzer sounds. Maybe there wasn’t time. Alec Burks suspects something else most times. “I think a lot of people do it just to save their percent,” he says Just don’t count the Jazz shooting guard among them. Burks has been the Jazz’s go-to launcher late in quarters. He’s fired 10 shots from at least 40 feet — five more than anyone els...

Utah Jazz: Alec Burks’ return a good sign for struggling team

Utah Jazz guard Alec Burks is back. After missing four games because of a sprained left ankle and an admittedly rusty performance Sunday at Oklahoma City, Burks was at his driving-slashing-acrobatic best in Monday night’s 92-83 loss to the Knicks. He finished with 17 points, seven rebounds and four assists. The only blemish on his stat line were five turnovers, which matched a season-high. Coach Tyrone Corbin liked what he saw. “His movement, his attacking ability,” Corbin said. “He was spectacu...

Utah Jazz vs. New York Knicks Recap

Jazz Lose to Knicks 92-83 The first quarter was quick and Jazz came out strong to take a 27-21 lead. Burke and Favors got into some foul trouble, but Kanter had six points and three bounds of the bench (Marvin started because of the Melo Matchup) to help take the first quarter lead. Enes Kanter is just a confident NBA player now. It's fun to see his progression. asd— Jody Genessy (@DJJazzyJody) April 1, 2014 Richard Jeffferson and Alec Burks got to the basket early and often in the second quarter pushing the Jazz lead to eight 33-25 at the fist timeout in the second quarter.

Burks returns to Jazz’s lineup

Oklahoma City • After missing four straight games with a sprained left ankle, Jazz shooting guard Alec Burks was back in the lineup Sunday. It took a moment to shake the rust off. The attacking guard was in familiar position, getting back to the line quickly upon checking into the game. But he hit on just one of his first four free-throw attempts. Handling the ball in a first-quarter pick and roll, Burks dribbled right and lost it out of bounds. “When I was talking to him on the court, he said h...
