Burke wins second Rookie of the Month award

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 Sports) - Trey Burke is named the NBA Western Conference Rookie of the Month, becoming the first Jazz player ever to win the award twice.
SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 Sports) - The NBA announced today that Utah Jazz guard Trey Burke has been named the Western Conference Rookie of the Month for games played during the month of January, marking the second straight month he has won the award.

Burke (6-1, 190, Michigan) becomes the first player in franchise history to win multiple Rookie of the Month awards. Karl Malone was named NBA Rookie of the Month in December 1985, the only previous monthly rookie honor for the Jazz. The award, which has been given monthly since the 1981-82 season, was originally the NBA Rookie of the Month before splitting into Eastern and Western Conference Rookies of the Month in 2001-02.

The Jazz point guard led all NBA rookies in assists (6.8 apg), and ranked third in scoring (11.8 ppg) and minutes (31.5 mpg) during January. Burke scored in double figures seven times, and handed out five-or-more assists in nine of 12 contests while helping the Jazz to a 6-6 month. He recorded consecutive point/assist double-doubles on January 15 at San Antonio and January 17 at Detroit.
