Utah Jazz tame Miami Heat (video)

< Previous Page

"The coaches trusted me," said Burke, who had 13 points and three assists. "The players trusted me. I felt like some of the shots that I usually make weren’t falling tonight and haven’t been falling the past couple of games. But they continue to come to me and tell me to play, play with confidence. Don’t think about it, just play freely. That’s what I did."

The victory was Utah’s third in a row at home over Miami.

The win snapped a four-game losing streak, and improved the Jazz’s record to 17-33 with winnable games against the Lakers and the 76ers on the horizon.

"This season is about learning. It’s about growing. It’s about a process," said Jefferson, who scored 14 points and grabbed four rebounds. "It’s not about winning percentages. It’s not about winning streaks. We understand that. … We focus on how we play, playing the right way. Not necessarily wins and losses.

"Although wins are definitely better than losses."
