Burke: I Have to Shoot My Way Out of Slump

Basketball Insiders

The second-year point guard watched shot after shot draw iron and bounce away, even feigning like it would fall on occasion before popping out of the rim. By the end of the 105-82 blowout loss to the Dallas Mavericks, Burke had connected on just four of his 12 attempts.

But the young guard believes the only remedy for a slump is the next open look.

“You just got to take those shots. … Obviously my shot hasn’t been falling lately,” he said in the locker room afterward. “But it’s something you have to stay confident with.”

“We just need to stay confident more than anything,” he said. “We started off as a team 0-for-10. A lot of times, you would just get down on yourself. We kept shooting those shots. Those are shots that we can hit. It’s something that you can shoot your way out of. You gotta keep taking those shots if the defense is going to give them to you.”

James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on Sept. 27. The three-time NBA champion sat out the Cavaliers’ first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss.
