Recap: Toronto vs. Utah

Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Tyler Hansbrough poured in 23 points and grabbed seven rebounds to lead the Toronto Raptors in a 115-91 rout of the winless Utah Jazz on Saturday at Air Canada Centre.

DeMar DeRozan donated 18 points, Jonas Valanciunas followed with 14 points, and Rudy Gay added 11 points to help the Raptors halt a three-game skid.

"We started out playing the game the right way and we finished the game the right way," Toronto head coach Dwane Casey said. "Hansbrough was a handful. Efforts like his tonight are contagious."

Gordon Hayward paced Utah with 24 points, seven rebounds and four assists, while Derrick Favors registered 17 points and seven boards for the Jazz, who are off to their worst start (0-7) since dropping the first 11 games of their inaugural 1974-75 campaign in New Orleans.

"I've got to remember that these guys are young," Utah head coach Tyrone Corbin said. "You have to keep telling them that no one is going to feel sorry for you in the this league. You have to keep working hard. "

Hayward's reverse layup just past the midpoint of the first had Utah within 14-12, but the Raptors outscored the Jazz 33-8 over the next 11-plus minutes to seize control of the contest.

DeRozan donated eight points in the run, while Hansbrough added nine, including a pair of free throws that gave the Raptors a 47-20 lead with 6:33 left in the first half.

Gay's 3-pointer just before the halftime buzzer sent Toronto into the break with a 62-36 advantage and the margin reached 91-60 by the end of the third.

Hansbrough and Quincy Acy combined on a 9-2 run to open the fourth that pushed the cushion to 100-62 and the Raptors cruised the rest of the way en route to the double-digit victory.
