Burks, stop trying to draw the foul, try making the shot. #UTAatNOP

Tough loss. Incredible comeback once again. These guys keep fighting till the end. Gobert, Kanter, Burks, Hayward all very good tonight

Tony Jones

Actually, It was Enes and Alec Burks that combined for -30

Aaron Falk

Another good second half effort from the Jazz, especially Kanter, Gobert & Burks. But will it be good enough? Jazz down 93-89 w/ 2 min left.

Tony Jones

Heat up 93-89 with 2:02 remaining...Burks missed 2 of 3 free-throws...Jazz have had chances

Jody Genessy

Dwyane Wade fouled Alec Burks on a 3-point attempt.

Case in point: Alec Burks slips between Napier and Bosh, gets fouled in the air and somehow sinks the shot.

Aaron Falk

Rodney Hood on the floor for Alec Burks late in this game probably isn't a ringing endorsement for Burks' being 100 percent.

Bill Herenda
