But he wasn’t aware of a stat that’s pretty odd for a Jazz point guard. Through his first six pro games, the 6-1 playmaker was averaging more rebounds (3.5 rpg) than assists (3.0 rpg).

“I didn’t know that. Yeah, that’s a little strange for me,” Burke said, chuckling. “Usually I’m the type of guy that has more assists than rebounds.”

In college, Burke averaged 16.9 points, 5.7 assists and 3.3 boards during two seasons at Michigan.

Burke anticipates his assist numbers will climb as he becomes more comfortable with the Jazz offense and his new teammates.

“I think that just comes with the rhythm, the flow and the chemistry with everybody else,” Burke said. “Me being in a brand-new system, trying to figure out everybody else’s position, where guys are supposed to be, when to attack, when to set guys up, I think that’s all just a feel for the game that I’m continuing to get better at.”

Hard to get assists when you're always shooting! He looked pretty good today though. See if he can keep it up.
