He missed the ball and hit his head...


... but he accelerated after missing the ball and followed through after hitting his head. Good call.

this is **** ridiculous. the guy was going to the rim and pump faked while in the air, afflalo wasn't aiming for his head, burks moved his hand at a split second and got whacked.

That could have ended much worse for Burks than it actually did. Players nowadays are tanks with their strength, a hit like that could of resulted in a serious injury - good call from the refs to keep it clean for any future incidents. No need to follow through his head after he clutched below the block attempt.

The reason to give him one, is cause under no circumstances should you hit a person while in air on an open shot at the rim, let alone hitting them in head. I don't care if your about to lose the championship, you shouldn't be hitting people in head when they obviously got the easy bucket. He was going for the hard foul either way, there was no reason for this hit.

This is what happens when you try and defend something you can't. Players should know their limit, cause recklessness like this could cause season ending injury.
With Trey Burke gone (only worth a 2021 2nd round pick, psh), I now apologize, I was foolish for believing in him and defending him as a point guard for Jazz. He was the biggest waste of draft pick.
