So Damian Lillard decided to hoist another on the next possession. It hit all net, much to the chagrin of 19,248 at EnergySolutions Arena. Why stop there? That was Lillard’s next thought. So he kept shooting. And he kept making threes. A trio of them, to be exact, a little less than three minutes apart. It turned out to be Utah’s death knell on Friday night. In a 111-99 Portland win over the Jaz...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

The rookie point guard has played in each of the Jazz’s 66 games. In that time, he’s learned there’s no time to take plays off either. With Portland’s Damian Lillard in town Friday, that will hold especially true. “It’s going to be another challenge and I have to get up for it,” Burke said. “… Every night you got to be ready to compete against some of the best guards in the world.” Lilla...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Yes, when NBA star Damian Lillard is impressed, that’s a good sign. Lillard’s loyalty was rewarded Saturday night. One of Weber State’s most famous alumni witnessed an 88-67 victory over North Dakota for the Big Sky Conference tournament championship at the Dee Events Center.

Back to the grind of the regular season, the Jazz wouldn’t mind seeing Burke follow the former Weber State star’s path in other ways. “He’s a great player, a young player who has gotten better every night out there on the floor,” Utah coach Ty Corbin said of Lillard, the league’s reigning Rookie of the Year. “It’s a g...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
