Trey Burke vs. Ricky Rubio and Shabazz Muhammad: Burke's first win


If you're not quite sure why this post is a thing, check out any of our past posts, with this being the most recent.

In this installment of the 2013 NBA Draft second-guessing fun fest, we look at two Wolves that will be without Derrick Williams going forward, and a once-Wolf that got his first NBA win last night.

TREY BURKE: In our last installment Thursday, Burke was making his NBA debut, a showing that saw him put up 11 points in just 12 minutes of action.

Today, we look at Burke's performance last night, another milestone in his young career as he started in his first career home game.

He was just 5-of-17 from the field, but scored five points in the last two minutes and overtime as Burke picked up his first career win and the Jazz second victory of the season with a 89-83 final over Chicago.

Burke added six rebounds and four assists to his 14 points, and the Salt Lake Tribune sang his praises postgame.

RICKY RUBIO: We're not sure if Rubio will miss forward Derrick Williams, who was traded to Sacramento today, though we do know he liked D-Will enough to retweet him earlier this month.

Regardless, Rubio was once again lackluster shooting the ball, going 3-of-9 from the field against Indiana in the Wolves 98-84 loss last night. He did nearly post a triple-double however, scoring nine points, dishing out seven assists, and grabbing nine rebounds.

Rubio is slowly improving from the field, up to nearly 35 percent, and while that still isn't great, it has been worse nearly all year.

SHABAZZ MUHAMMAD: The trade of Williams can only help Muhammad, who has played just 20 minutes on the season while making one field goal of his seven attempts.

He had missed six straight games with an ankle injury, but was active against the Pacers, though he did not appear in the game.

Still, with Williams out of the way at the small forward, you would think only Corey Brewer is ahead of Muhammad, though Robbie Hummel has seen time at the three over Shabazz as well.

Let's also not forget about Chase Budinger's impending return, as he is likely to be a key contributor off the bench playing the exact role Muhammad would occupy.

SUMMARY: Burke is starting, Muhammad is sitting, and Ricky isn't winning.

Stay tuned.
