Alec Burks played his season high in minutes again tonight after doing so last game. First off, I would like to say it’s good to see him on the floor. His ability to penetrate and just be “instant offense” helps our team in a way we haven’t seen before. Although he had a bad offensive game tonight, he managed to stay on the floor.
His rebounding skill is something that none of us knew he had. Tonight he had 8 boards which is an impressive feat for a guard. I hope this shows management that he has value beyond his offensive gifts, and his play time is adjusted accordingly. Hayward and Burks have a bit of a yin/yang complex to their games, which I think with court time together could become a great thing.
Side note: Foye played like poop tonight. I like him, but after tonight, Burks showed he is already better than him.
