Last year around this time, Trey Burke was leading his Michigan Wolverines to the championship game of the NCAA Tournament.
Now with the Jazz, Burke recreated some of that magic in the closing seconds against Orlando on Saturday.
Utah wisely pushed the ball up the floor instead of calling a timeout, and the play that was called is almost always going to result in an open look, especially in these situations. Gordon Hayward drives hard to the basket which forces the defense to collapse, but he knows Burke is going to be alone in the corner.
Hayward manages to get the ball to him with a pass along the baseline, and Burke’s quick release enabled him to get the shot off before a defender could close, and the game-winner splashed home with 1.6 seconds to play.
