    I noticed that... he should have had another 2 assists (one to kanter and one to favors) just from him getting into the paint and dishing off.
    His defense has gotten alot better, and it doesn't seem like he has lost his knack for getting to the line...... it doesn't seem like anyone can defend him 1 on 1 and keep him out of the paint.

    He needs to ****ing get minutes
    Damn it! Is the organization really this blind!?!!
    At this point, he might be our best wing. Think about that.
    Its not Hayward anymore, he's got some sort of problem or scouting report on him. It's not Foye, his defense and rebounding sucks. Carrolle has no offense. Marvin's not aggressive.

    Marvin just needs some feeds. Instead, the ball goes into Jefferson and ball movement STOPS.
    Hayward tries to do too much. But yes, Foye needs to take a seat so Burks can play.

    I truly don't understand what Foye does better than Burks.

    I may be too old now...

    But back in my playing days the coach usually started and played the best players because he wanted to win.

    Burks shoots, scores, drives, and defends better than Foye. I cannot think of something Foye does better... Maybe FT shooting? But even that isn't great, because Burks gets to the FT line sooooo much more.

    3 point shooting.
    But when that's off, he sucks completely.

    Burks says a game like tonight will help his development. "It wasn’t part of the last-minute stuff I usually get."

    Alec Burks says, "I got drafted on my ability to get to the rim. I’m going to keep using it until somebody stops me.”

    3 assists tonight? Paging Purch. Paging Purch. My boys need some skeeterial.

    Those who watched, how did his passing look? Assists on completely broken plays or genuine creating like Kobe or Wade would?

    I didn't watch the whole game, but from what I saw Burks played a really complete game. More than once I saw him show an awareness that I had never seen from him before. Twice, he backed off from attacking the basket, once for a pullup jumper that he drilled because his man went under a screen, and once because he saw that instead of driving he could get it to Al in a mismatch, resulting in a layup.

    He looked very in touch with the game and capable with or without the ball in his hands.
