 San Antonio, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Seven Spurs reached double figures, with
 Manu  Ginobili's  21 points leading the  way in San Antonio's 122-104 over the
 Utah Jazz on Sunday.
 
 Tony  Parker went for 18 points and seven assists, while Tim Duncan donated 16
 points, six rebounds and six assists in the rout. Tiago Splitter had 14 points
 and  10  rebounds and Patty  Mills and Marco  Belinelli each needed just seven
 shots for 12 points in reserve roles.
 
 "Patty  Mills just  keeps on giving it  to us," praised San Antonio head coach
 Gregg  Popovich. "Marco Belinelli comes off the bench with a lot of energy and
 basketball savvy."
 
 The  Spurs, winners  in 10  straight, will  embark on  a three-game  road trip
 starting in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
 
 Derrick  Favors poured in  a career-high 28 points for Utah, while he and Enes
 Kanter  contributed 10 and 11 rebounds, respectively, as the Jazz fell for the
 fourth straight time. Gordon Hayward had 17 points, six boards and six helpers
 in the setback.
 
 "I  thought our  guys competed hard, and that's the thing I'm impressed with,"
 said Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin. "Give them credit, they shot the ball extremely
 well."
 
 The Spurs shot better than 50 percent in all four periods, outscoring the Jazz
 in every stanza.
 
 Utah  kept it  close early  on and  led 21-19  after Favors'  turn-around late
 in  the first  quarter. Belinelli  knotted it  up with  his reverse  layup and
 Ginobili gave the Spurs a 26-23 lead with his layup at the end of the frame.
 
 Favors tied it back up at 38-38 with a short jumper midway through the second,
 but  the Spurs  controlled the  later  portion of  the quarter.  Again it  was
 Ginobili  providing the offense, hitting a pair of free throws with 37 seconds
 left and a pull-up triple just before the halftime buzzer.
 
 San Antonio led 61-53 halftime and pushed the spread to 91-76 after three.
 
 The margin did not dip back under double digits the rest of the way.
