SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Trey Burke scored 23 points and the Utah Jazz beat San Antonio 90-81 on Monday night, extending the Spurs’ losing streak to three since returning from the All-Star break.
The Jazz used an energetic defensive effort to turn a season-high 22 Spurs turnovers into 17 points. Forward Gordon Hayward scored 18 despite a poor-shooting night, while Derrick Favors added 14 points and 10 rebounds.
Jazz center Rudy Gobert set the defensive tone early with two first-quarter blocks of Tim Duncan and finished with seven points, 14 rebounds, three blocks and two steals. The Jazz have held their last five opponents under 100 points.
Duncan had 14 points and 10 rebounds. Boris Diaw chipped in 13 points and Cory Joseph had 10.
