But locker room clean-out day for the Jazz yielded a more serious side to Utah’s third-year center. He was clearly miffed at not receiving more playing time this season. He stated that the five younger guys on the roster should’ve played more frequently together, and made it clear that he wants that rectified next season. “They told us...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

He wants to straighten out his right index finger. Burke, the Jazz’s rookie point guard, fractured the finger during a preseason game against the L.A. Clippers in October. He missed 12 games. Burke ended up averaging 12.8 points and 5.7 assists in 32.3 minutes per game.

The veteran guard hit 178 of them last year in Utah, setting the franchise record for triples in a single season. Saturday night, Foye took his old team down memory lane. The Nuggets sharpshooter hit three 3-pointers in the fourth quarter and finished with a game-high 26 points, as he helped down the Jazz 101-94 in Denver.
