Trey Burke came up limping after the Nuggets' first trip down the floor Monday. But the Jazz rookie toughed it out, and after getting his right ankle re-taped, put on a pretty good show.
Burke finished with 18 points and eight assists.
"I slid," he said afterward. "I think it was a little wet spot out there and it wasn't my ankle, it was kind of near my Achilles. It's fine. It's just a little sore. I don't know what I did. It doesn't seem serious at all so I'm going to get treatment on it, ice it and see how it feels tomorrow."
