SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Just two days after watching the Spurs give up more points than they had all season, San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich saw something he was more accustomed to Thursday night.

Tony Parker scored 22 points and the Spurs played smothering defense to beat Utah 106-83, San Antonio's 15th consecutive home victory over the Jazz.

"I recognized the team that was out there tonight," Popovich said.

San Antonio gave up 114 points in a loss on Tuesday to Milwaukee.

But the Jazz could only shoot 42 percent from the floor. They committed 17 turnovers and had eight shots blocked.

The Jazz even had trouble from the free-throw line, hitting 19-of-32 foul shots for less than 60 percent.

Tim Duncan added 20 points for the Spurs and had three blocked shots.

"We realized our mistakes from last game, and we understand that defensively we are a much better ball club," Duncan said. "I have to be able to block shots back there, be more of a shot blocker and more of a contester back there."

Manu Ginobili returned from a one-game absence because of stomach flu and scored 12 points, had four rebounds and three assists in 19 minutes.

Deron Williams led Utah (21-9) with 11 points.

Carlos Boozer, who leads the league with 22 doubles-doubles, was limited to nine points and seven rebounds on 2-of-10 shooting from the floor.

"Those guys gave us a lesson on how to play basketball tonight," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "They took us straight out of what we wanted to do. We started to take tough shots and stopped executing."

San Antonio Spurs forward Robert Horry (5) jokes with coach Gregg Popovich as he leaves the team's NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in San Antonio, Thursday, Dec. 28, 2006. San Antonio won 106-83.

Parker hit all five of his shots from the floor and scored 12 points in the second quarter as the Spurs turned a one-point lead with 8:27 to go in the half into a 15-point advantage at halftime.

"They took it to us and were the aggressor," Boozer said.

San Antonio had a 27-point lead heading into the fourth quarter. The Spurs avoided losing three straight at home for the first time since January 2002.

"I thought Tony (Parker) did a good job defensively setting a tone in that regard," Popovich said. "Offensively he ran a really good, balanced attack for himself and others."

The Jazz dropped to 1-7 when they are held to less than 100 points. They avoided their season low of 78 points scored on Nov. 27 against Orlando.

The Jazz have not won in San Antonio in almost eight years.

Andrei Kirilenko, who got elbowed in the head against the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday and did not return after playing 16 minutes, started against the Spurs. But he was limited to six points in 27 minutes.

Brent Barry and Matt Bonner also returned from stomach flu. Bonner scored 12 points and Barry seven, both in reserve roles.

After trailing by as many as seven points in the first quarter, the Jazz pulled to 36-35 when Williams hit a 19-foot jump shot 3:33 into the second quarter.

But the Spurs outscored Utah 17-4 during the next 5:55 to go ahead by 14 points.

With Parker hitting two shots before the second quarter ended, the Spurs had a 15-point lead at the break. Parker went 5-for-5 from the floor during the final eight minutes of the half.

Anyone seen the game? How bad was it?

Man, everything was ok untill the Jazz got in foul trouble. Duncan was a man possessed, wanting revenge from the last time we played 'em. The Jazz are now 0-14 in that arena...

Dee Brown had a good game though. 8 points on 4-6 shooting, 3 rebounds, 4 assists, a couple steals, and a block with no turnovers. Nothing spectacuar but a solid game.

I somehow can't seem to get warm with Dee Brown. He's spectacularly fast and quick, but at times he totally seems at a loss at what to do with the ball. Might be cause it's such a contrast to Deron, but he really looks uncomfortable playing the point at times.

From what I've seen at Illinois, he is much better playing the 2 on offense along side Williams. He knocks down more shots and is more comfortable at that position. He is a shooting guard in a point guard's body. He can man the point, he just won't be as effective.
