San Antonio • Tony Parker finished with 18 points and nine assists in less than three quarters Wednesday night, leading San Antonio to a 114-83 victory over the Utah Jazz in Game 2 of their first-round Western Conference playoff series. The Spurs lead the best-of-seven series, 2-0.

The Jazz trailed by 11 after a quarter, 25 at the half, 34 at the end of the third and 31 at the final buzzer to cap one of the most humilating playoff losses in franchise history.

Down 87-53 to start the fourth quarter, the Jazz started by missing five shots, committing a turnover and being called for an offensive foul. Utah fell behind, 93-55, and coach Tyrone Corbin keeps his unproductive starts on the bench for the duration of this lopsided battle.
