Recap: Detroit vs. Utah

Auburn Hills, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Trey Burke had 20 points and 12 assists and the Utah Jazz routed the Detroit Pistons 110-89 on Friday night.

"I thought he was passing the ball really well," Jazz head coach Tyrone Corbin said of Burke. "He made some turnovers, but I thought he was looking to make the right passes."

Enes Kanter tallied 18 points and seven rebounds, Marvin Williams added 17 points and seven boards and Derrick Favors grabbed 11 rebounds for Utah, which has alternated wins and losses over its last seven games.

Rodney Stuckey had 21 points and six rebounds for the Pistons, who have dropped seven of their last nine tilts.

"We just didn't come out and compete," Stuckey said. "That's on us tonight."

The Jazz pulled away during the latter stages of the first half and the early portion of the third quarter.

After Brandon Jennings' 3-pointer pulled the Pistons within 50-45 with 2:48 left in the second, Utah scored the next 16 points.

The Jazz took an 89-65 cushion into the final frame, where Utah led by as many as 29 before cruising to the easy win.
