Big minutes last night for Burke (38), Burks (35) & Hayward (38). Snyder left them in longer when Jazz made a run, but said it wasn't ideal.
Only 9 of Trey Burke's 77 passes last night lead to a shot attempt and 4 to made field goals
Trey Burke: We played well in the second half and went on some runs. But we couldn't get the stops and Houston went on another run
Jazz happy with D on Harden, but Burke says, “We left the other guys open. Trevor Ariza & the other guy. I can’t pronounce his last name.”
At this point, Snyder is going to have to play Burke 40 minutes a game
Quin had to put Trey Burke back into the game. I know the Jazz want to develop Exum, but they really need a pg for the second unit
Burke took over the last three minutes....
Trey Burke left handed off the glass. Trey Burke right handed off the glass. Jazz are back in this, down just 75-72 after three quarters.
For good measure, Trey Burke just hit a right-handed floater off the glass to bring the Jazz within three of Rockets at end of the third.
Ladies and gentlemen, Trey Burke has come alive.....
