SALT LAKE CITY -- Forward Tim Duncan scored 22 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead the San Antonio Spurs to a 100-84 victory over the Utah Jazz on Saturday at the EnergySolutions Arena.
The Spurs (19-4) overcame a sluggish start and maintained a double-digit lead from the middle of the second quarter on to win their fourth game in five nights. San Antonio traveled to Utah after beating Minnesota 117-110 at home Friday.
Rookie Trey Burke led the Jazz with 20 points and five assists in his first match-up with All-Star point guard Tony Parker. But Utah (5-20) only shot 39.3 percent while losing after winning two games in a row, including Friday's surprising 103-93 victory at Denver.
Parker scored 15 points with seven assists, forward Kawhi Leonard contributed 13 points and reserve guards Marco Belinelli and Patty Mills each scored 11 as San Antonio beat Utah for a third consecutive time.
Shooting guard Gordon Hayward scored 18 points for the Jazz after dropping 30 on the Nuggets on Friday night. However, forward Marvin Williams was the only other Jazz player in double figures with 10 points.
The Jazz took a 6-0 lead on a three-point play by former Spurs forward Richard Jefferson at the 9:14 mark of the first quarter.
San Antonio stormed back with eight straight points and Utah went almost four minutes without scoring until center Derrick Favors evened the score at 8 with 5:26 remaining in the first quarter.
Forward Jeremy Evans gave the Jazz their last lead of the night at 15-14 with 3:18 left in the opening period. The Spurs closed the quarter out on an 8-2 run, and then took complete control in the second quarter.
The Jazz had another scoreless drought for almost four minutes in the second as San Antonio went on a 9-0 spurt to take a 35-22 lead on forward Aron Baynes' three-point play. The Spurs outscored Utah 32-23 in the second for a 55-40 halftime lead.
Jefferson's 3-pointer early in the third quarter brought the Jazz within nine points of the Spurs at 61-52, but San Antonio built its lead up to 21 and was never threatened again after that.
Utah only scored 18 points in the fourth quarter as its home record dropped to 3-10, the same mark as it has on the road.
The Jazz embark on their annual pre-Christmas trip on Monday in Miami where they begin a five-game Southeastern tour that concludes in Memphis on Dec. 23 with stops in Orlando, Atlanta and Charlotte in between.
This was the first stop of a four-game road trip for San Antonio, which plays at the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday.
