Jazz 131, Raptors 99: Paul Millsap led eight players in double figures with 20 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as Utah improved to 8-1 at home.

Enes Kanter recorded 18 points and eight boards, Gordon Hayward scored 17 points and Mo Williams added 11 and 10 assists for the Jazz, who posted their 14th win in 15 meetings with the Raptors despite being without Al Jefferson (back spasms) and Derrick Favors (foot).

Andrea Bargnani had 20 points and eight rebounds, DeMar DeRozan contributed 17 points and Mickael Pietrus chipped in 13 for Toronto, which fell to 1-12 on the road with its ninth straight loss away from home.

The Raptors opened a 10-point lead in the first before ending the quarter with a 29-25 advantage, but Utah outscored Toronto 38-23 in the second to claim an 11-point lead at the half. The Jazz were up by 19 after three quarters thanks in part to a 10-0 run fueled by Marvin Williams and Mo Williams, who combined for three 3-pointers and a free throw during the spurt.

A 14-0 burst early in the fourth gave Utah a 112-80 cushion with 6:42 remaining. Kanter's driving layup with 1:58 left gave the Jazz their largest lead of the night at 127-93.
