After missing four games because of a sprained left ankle and an admittedly rusty performance Sunday at Oklahoma City, Burks was at his driving-slashing-acrobatic best in Monday night’s 92-83 loss to the Knicks. He finished with 17 points, seven rebounds and four assists. The only blemish on his stat line were five turnovers, which matched a season-high.

And two decades later, Thomas remains bitter. “I think it was the dirtiest play I have experienced in the game of basketball in my life,” Thomas said of the play, which happened on a Pistons pick-and-roll with Malone rotating to cover the middle. “I don’t think I’ve seen anything as vicious and a...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
