                            === Spurs rout Jazz ===
 
 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.
