SAN ANTONIO — The Utah Jazz fell to the Spurs 110-100 in San Antonio Saturday night.

The Jazz had an impressive comeback after trailing by 18 at halftime. Utah outscored San Antonio 35-17 in the third quarter, tying the game at 79. The Jazz went on a 13-0 run during the comeback with Mo Williams scoring nine of the points. Williams finished the game with 29 points on 9-12 shooting and seven assists.

But the Spurs were just too much for the Jazz to handle in the fourth quarter, outscoring the Jazz 31-21. Tony Parker led the Spurs with 24 points and 10 assists. San Antonio had five players who reached double-figures in scoring, compared to four for Utah.

The Jazz started the game shooting just 1-10 from the field. Utah was outscored in every quarter except the third.
