Summer League Game #3 - Wednesday, 11 a.m.

Andy Lyons

The Nets will face the Jazz at 11 a.m. Wednesday in Orlando and two match-ups are likely to prove interesting, one between seven foot rookies Mason Plumlee and Rudy Gobert, of France and the other between point guards Trey Burke and Tyshawn Taylor.

Gobert was taken five spots behind Plumlee in the NBA Draft after being ahead of him in most mocks prior to June 27. Gobert, whose 7'2" height and 7'9" wingspan wowed draftniks, has averaged only 5.5 points and 5.0 rebounds so far. Plumlee's 7'0" with a 6'11" wingspan, is averaging 16.5 and 11.5. Plumlee is leading the summer league in shooting percentage at 84.6 percent and is second in rebounding to Detroit's Andre Drummond.

Taylor, despite a tough first game overall vs. Detroit -- and continuing problems with turnovers, is still playing better than Burke, taken ninth in this year's draft. Burke is shooting a miserable 6-of-27 (22.2 percent) including 1-of-10 (10.0 percent, with only seven assists. Taylor, despite some rough stretches, is averaging 21.0 points per game, the most in Orlando, shooting 41.9 percent overall, but only 14.3 percent from deep. His assist to turnover ratio, however, is ugly, with four assists and 11 turnovers, his 5.5 average the summer league's worst.

Also playing for the Jazz, Alec Burks, from the draft class of 2012. He's averaging 14 points.
