New Post at Hickory-High.com on Alec Burks

Go check out what the rookie has been up to

So far, Burks hasn’t spent much time in isolation situations, but when he has, results have not been good. He’s averaging only 0.52 points per possession in isolation according to mySynergy Sports, and his low shooting percentages are consistent across all of his isolation shots. Burks is shooting 29 percent on shots at the rim and 30 percent on jumpers outside the lane. The good news is that Burks is not settling for jumpers and is getting into the lane on over 60 percent of his isolation possessions. Based on his ability to finish in non-isolation situations and in college, Burks should eventually learn the nuances of dealing with NBA big men. He’ll need to learn this because his jump shot has been a weakness since college.
