Recap: Utah vs. San Antonio

Salt Lake City, UT (SportsNetwork.com) - Tim Duncan had 22 points and 12 rebounds as the San Antonio Spurs routed the Utah Jazz, 100-84, on Saturday night.

"He's getting his shot back. He missed a couple tonight, but at least he's taking them and he looks good. And in the post, he's aggressive. He's making strong moves defensively. Everything, his game, he's getting back into his groove," Spurs point guard Tony Parker said of Duncan.

Parker added 15 points, seven assists and five rebounds for the Spurs, who have won four straight games. Kawhi Leonard netted 13 points in the triumph.

Trey Burke tallied 20 points and five assists for Utah, which has dropped five of its last seven tilts. Gordon Hayward chipped in 18 points in defeat.

"They (Spurs) know what to do, when to do and how to do it. They showed us. They just continued to execute," Jazz head coach Tyrone Corbin said.

After Alec Burks hit a running layup and Brandon Rush drained a triple on back-to-back possessions to pull Utah within 26-22 in the early stages of the second, the Spurs used an elongated 25-10 run to expand their advantage.

Matt Bonner nailed a pair of 3-pointers and Leonard netted six points, including a layup to cap the swing and increase the Spurs' margin to 51-32 late in the frame.

San Antonio took a 55-40 spread into the break and 80-66 cushion into the final frame, where the visitors cruised to the easy win.

The Spurs led 23-17 after a quarter of play.
