Utah Jazz point guard Trey Burke calls fans who want the team to lose their remaining games "selfish".

Trey Burke has described fans who want the Utah Jazz to lose their remaining games of the season as "selfish".

Some of the team's supporters have been calling for them to lose their remaining games of the season in the hope of securing a better place in the Draft.

The rookie point guard told the Salt Lake Tribune: "I think that's just selfish for a fan. We play hard, practise hard every single day. Why would we go out there and try to lose?

"I just think wherever we do land in the lottery, that will be great for us. But to try to tank games and lose games is just absurd."

The Jazz have won just 23 games this season, leaving them bottom in the Western Conference.
