Spurs hold off Jazz to take commanding series lead

Salt Lake City, UT (Sports Network) – Manu Ginobili had 22 points, six
rebounds and three steals, as the San Antonio Spurs took a 3-1
series lead over the Utah Jazz with a 91-79 victory in Western Conference
finals action from EnergySolutions Arena.

Tim Duncan added 19 points and nine boards while Tony Parker finished with 17
points for the Spurs, who rebounded from a 109-83 loss on Saturday.

Deron Williams fought through a stomach flu to post a game-high 27 points and
10 assists for Utah, which trailed by just one entering the fourth but was
unable to keep up in the final quarter. Williams did not participate in the
team’s shootaround on Monday, but was able to take the floor come game time to
lead his team. Carlos Boozer had 18 points and nine rebounds in a losing
effort.

Game 5 of this best-of-seven series is scheduled for Wednesday at the AT&T
Center, where the Spurs can secure a trip to the NBA Finals.
