Boxscore


With his second season start, Burke torched the Hornets with a career-high 42 points, shooting 19-31 from the field. He also dished 12 assists, outplaying his opponent, Kemba Walker.

Growing up with Allen Iverson as his idol, Burke showed plenty of moves that resembled the ones of AI. Crossovers, back-step shots, you name it.

“More than anything, it’s the movements. When I stepback and I crossover, that’s all from watching him.”
