Alec Burks fizzles in another start (Apr 13 12:00 ET )
Alec Burks started again on Saturday over Richard Jefferson, but struggled, hitting just 1-of-3 shots (a 3-pointer) for five points in a loss to Denver.
Richard Jefferson played 30 minutes vs. the Thunder on Sunday with 17 points, two boards and three 3-pointers.
The Scoop:He averaged 34.5 minutes per game in the four outings without Alec Burks and was still able to get some nice run with Burks only at 21 minutes today. Jefferson will likely see his numbers take a hit and won't be a reliable option in an upcoming three-game week.
Richard Jefferson hit 4-of-6 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, four rebounds and four assists in Wednesday's loss.
The Scoop:Jefferson is officially hot, scoring 21, 12 and 15 points with nine 3-pointers in his last three games. He tends to disappear just as quickly as he arrives these days, but his three-game sample looks good on paper. Give him a look if you need a warm body in a deeper league.
