WATCH: Giannis Antetokounmpo Denies Alec Burks, Leads Break for Behind-the-Back Assist

Tweet While the 2013 NBA Draft class hasn’t been remarkable by any means in terms of production this season as a whole. Largely, the rookies have been a disappointment and have struggled to find consistent success.

Burks scores 34 as Jazz overpower Denver

Alec Burks could have felt the weight of starting in place of the team’s wounded leading scorer. He could have been concerned about being shorthanded against a surging Denver Nuggets team. But that would have been very un-Alec Burks. Pressure? Nah. "I just be myself," he said. Monday night, that was more than good enough. Burks, starting in place of the injured Gordon...

WATCH: Jazz's Alec Burks puts in crazy reverse layup

Tweet With rookie Utah Jazz point guard Trey Burke sidelined due to a finger injury to start the 2013-14 NBA season, guard Alec Burks is certainly going to see a large chunk of minutes at the beginning of the year.
