After the 17-4 run the San Antonio Spurs put on the Utah Jazz in the first quarter of Game 2 of the two teams' Western Conference quarterfinal series, the rest of the night was somehow less competitive. The Spurs cruised to a 114-83 win in a game that wasn't even as close as the final score indicated.
San Antonio pulled most of its starters at the beginning of the fourth quarter, after rolling up a massive 87-53 lead through three quarters. All five Spurs starters — Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green, and Boris Diaw — finished in double figures and posted a plus-minus better than +30 on the night.
The Spurs led by 38 at multiple junctures in the second half, and by at least 24 points for the entirety of it.
