Trey Burke’s game-winner against the Orlando Magic brought mixed reactions from Jazz fans, some of whom wouldn’t mind seeing the team lose the rest of its games with the hope of improving draft position.

Burke’s reaction, however, was not mixed.

“I think that’s just selfish for a fan,” the point guard said. “We play hard, practice hard every single day. Why would we go out there and try to lose? I just think wherever we do land in the lottery, that will be great for us. But to try to tank games and lose games is just absurd.”
