Recap: Utah vs. Toronto

Salt Lake City, UT (Sports Network) - Paul Millsap led eight players in double-figures with 20 points, 10 rebounds and five assists as the Utah Jazz posted a 131-99 rout of the Toronto Raptors.

Enes Kanter gave 18 points and eight rebounds, Gordon Hayward added 17 points while Marvin Williams had 14 points for the Jazz, who have won their past two games after a three-game losing streak. Randy Foye scored 13 points, Mo Williams posted 11 points and 10 assists while DeMarre Carroll and Jeremy Evans gave 11 and 10 points, respectively.

"We did a great job of sharing the ball tonight, just swinging it from strong side to weak side and making the extras pass. We got a lot of good looks as a result of that," Jazz head coach Tyrone Corbin said.

Utah has dominated the series with Toronto over the past eight seasons, winning 14 of the 15 games played between the two clubs. That includes a 140-133 triple-overtime game in Toronto on Nov. 12.

Andrea Bargnani had 20 points and eight rebounds for the Raptors, who have dropped three straight and nine of their last 10 games. DeMar DeRozan scored 17 points and pulled down five rebounds.

Utah came into the second quarter trailing by four points, but a 6-0 run capped on a Hayward layup gave the team a 36-33 lead and the team stayed in front from there.

Three straight 3-pointers, one each from Mo Williams, Marvin Williams and Carroll gave the team a 53-40 lead with under four minutes to play and the team took a 63-52 lead into the halftime break.

Utah came out in the third with the first six points and added a 10-0 run a bit later for an 81-59 lead off a Marvin Williams' 3-pointer with under eight minutes left.

The Jazz took a 95-76 lead into the fourth quarter and put the game away with 10 straight points including a Jamaal Tinsley layup to make it a 108-80 game with eight minutes left in the game.

Utah built its lead as high as 34 points on the way to the victory.

"Tonight is the first time I have seen us give in," Raptors head coach Dwane Casey said. "We have to get back to the fundamentals of basketball, whether it is guarding the ball, rebounding, transition and everything."

Thanks to an 11-0 run early in the first quarter, Toronto held a 29-25 lead after 12 minutes of play.
