Burke accounted for 26 points (10-19 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight assists and one steal in 26 minutes Saturday as the Knicks fell to the Celtics.
Burke duplicated his season-high scoring performance from Thursday's matchup against Orlando. He has been a plus-player during his short stint with the Knicks. Although the minutes are inconsistent, he produces when given the chance. The Michigan product could be a valuable fantasy asset moving forward if coach Jeff Hornacek continues to give him the opportunity.

Burke tallied 26 points (12-22 FG, 2-5 3Pt), six assists, five rebounds, one steal and one block across 30 minutes in Thursday's 120-113 victory over the Magic.
Coach Jeff Hornacek said Burke could be in like for more minutes coming out of the break, and that certainly was the case the first game out, as Burke received 30 minutes off the bench Thursday night. Hornacek is trying to evaluate all three of his point guards in a lost season, so all should see plenty of time going forward, with Burke's strong outing putting him in contention for the starting role and the most minutes of the three.
Coach Jeff Hornacek implied that Burke will see increased minutes over the final two months of the season, Ian Begley of ESPN reports.
While Hornacek did not specify how many minutes he'll look to carve out for Burke, the implication was that the Knicks will make an effort to find more time for the Michigan product, as well as fellow young guards Emmanuel Mudiay and Frank Ntilikina. As a result, veteran Jarrett Jack will likely have his minutes slashed, and Courtney Lee could also see a reduction in playing time. Heading into the All-Star break, Burke had played only 12 combined minutes over the Knicks' last three games.
