Force Trey Burke to get to the basket and to the line more. Not only is the rookie the best free-throw shooter on the team (91 percent), he has the worst field-goal efficiency (37 percent) among the Jazz’s main contributors. Solution: Encourage him to drive to the rim for easier scores and/or get fouled.

The Atlanta Hawks point guard was a sophomore for the Butler Bulldogs when they beat Syracuse and Kansas State at EnergySolutions Arena to advance to the 2010 Final Four. “It was real special,” Mack said, as he returned to Salt Lake City to face the Utah Jazz. But while Monday’s game provided a chance for a reunion with his former Butler teammate, Jazz swingman Gordon Hayward, Mack’s focus has shifted. “I talk to him a little bit.
