Being 6 foot 1 in the NBA, Trey Burke knows he’s going to get picked on by opponents on defense.

The Utah Jazz point guard has made a concerted effort to be able to counter that.

.Burke got burned time and time again as a rookie in that pick-and-roll defense, and he doesn’t want that to repeat itself again his sophomore season.

“Personally, that’s something that I wanted to get better at (and) I took pride in. I know I can be a good defender, even at the size I’m at, because I’m low to the ground and I can use my quickness,” he explained.
