Last season as a rookie, Burks averaged 16 minutes and 7 points per game.
Forward Jeremy Evans, who, like Burks, had played only garbage minutes in the opening-night win against Dallas, started the second quarter for the Jazz and played six minutes before being replaced by Mo Williams.
Millsap for 3
Paul Millsap's uncannily hot outside shooting finally hit its first hiccup, but not before the power forward made two more 3-pointers.
Millsap made his first five 3-pointers to start the season, before missing early in the third quarter against the Grizzlies.
Last season Millsap was 7-of-31 in the lockout-shortened year.
He made his first three attempts to start this season, including a timely make late against the Hornets on Friday, a game the Jazz ultimately lost. Then, against the Grizzlies, Millsap made two more. With 2:03 left in the second quarter Monday remained perfect with a 25-footer, then, early in the third quarter, he made one from the corner that beat the shot clock and put the Jazz up 55-51.
"He has expanded his game over the last couple of years to be able to make those shots in a timely fashion," Corbin said. "When he steps right into them it's a good-looking shot for him. There will be times that we'll use it."
Millsap has come a long way since three seasons ago, when he was just 1-of-9 from behind the arc, and before that when any 3-point attempt was out of desperation, rather than a function of the offense.
"I've been working on it a lot," Millsap said. "I feel more comfortable out there. I've got the confidence, coach has got confidence in me to step out and shoot."
