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. However, one of the most exciting rookies in the league is the “Greek Freak,” Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks. The lengthy, monster-handed youngster...

Alec Burks, Elite?

Of all the Jazz players, Alec Burks is the most likely one to have a highlight play.  We have all grown to love the amazing layups that seemingly only he can pull off.  In the month of February, Burks has elevated his game and lead the team in scoring with 15.64 points per game.  So what is he doing that has caused him to have so much success? It’s simple, he is doing what he...

Alec Burks lifts Jazz past Sixers in final game before the All-Star break

With the spectacular way he's played the past couple of days, it appears that Alec Burks could very well be headed for the annual NBA All-Star game himself someday. For the second straight night, the third-year shooting guard put on a superb fourth-quarter show to propel the Utah Jazz to victory. Indeed, when the Philadelphia 76ers rallied from a 14-point deficit in the final...

Burks lifts Jazz to 105-100 win over 76ers

There are times when Alec Burks is driving to the hoop and he has no idea what he's going to do. ''I surprise myself on some of these shots I make,'' Utah's reserve guard said. The Jazz breathed a collective sigh of relief when Burks put together a string of circus shots after the rest of the team had gone cold. Burks scored 10 of his 26 points in the final...

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. If he keeps producing plays like this one from their season-opener against the Thunder, I doubt the fans or the Jazz will mind...
