SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Tim Duncan had 24 points and nine rebounds and Manu Ginobili scored 10 of his 13 points in the fourth quarter to help the San Antonio Spurs held off the Utah Jazz 106-100 Tuesday night.

The Spurs pulled away with a 10-0 run early in the fourth quarter and led the rest of the way, making their last 10 free throws to make up for a woeful start from the foul line. Ginobili was 6-for-6 from the line in the final 24 seconds and 11-for-12 in the game.

Tony Parker added 24 points and six assists. Deron Williams had 19 points and 13 assists and Mehmet Okur had 22 points and a season-high 17 rebounds for Utah.
