The Jazz are banking that (Trey) Burke’s learning curve is rapid and he can emerge as their cornerstone point guard. He has posted four double-doubles (points-assists) and has eight games of 20 or more points.

“I think I’ve adjusted pretty quickly. The guys at this level are just as fast, bigger. It’s not really about natural talent anymore,” said Burke. “It’s about seeing the game, making the right reads, playing defense. The great point guards, that’s where they separate themselves. They may not be the most athletic guy. Take a guy like Chris Paul, he’s a smaller guard but he’s able to see the game at another level, and that’s where I’m trying to get to.”
