Burke’s hot shooting leads Jazz over Timberwolves
Wiggins scores 20 in losing effort
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) — Trey Burke bounced back from a horrendous shooting night to score a season-high 28 points and the Utah Jazz handed the Minnesota Timberwolves their 11th straight loss with a 101-89 victory on Saturday night.
After going 2 for 19, including 0 for 11 from 3-point range, against Atlanta on Friday, Burke hit 10 of 16 shots and 4 of 6 3-pointers. Rudy Gobert added 13 points, 11 rebounds and six blocks to help the Jazz roll on the second night of a back-to-back. The Jazz (12-22) have won six of their last nine games.
Andrew Wiggins scored 20 points, but the Timberwolves shot just 39.5 percent and missed 10 of their first 11 3-pointers to fall to 5-27. They have won just once in their last 18 games.
