SALT LAKE CITY — Tim Duncan set San Antonio's career scoring record, Tony Parker blocked out jeers from the crowd for 24 points, and the Spurs beat the Utah Jazz 94-82 on Friday night for their ninth straight victory.

Duncan needed 13 points to eclipse the mark set by David Robinson over 14 seasons (20,790), and finished with 19 points and 14 rebounds for yet another double-double.

The Spurs improved to 10-1 for the first time.

Utah, plagued by another slow start, rallied from a 15-point deficit to tie the game late in the third quarter. But unlike road wins against Miami, Orlando, Atlanta and Charlotte, the Jazz (8-5) couldn't pull off another comeback.
