LOS ANGELES - Tony Parker scored 28 points and Tim Duncan added 17 to lead the San Antonio Spurs over the Utah Jazz 106-91 yesterday in the opening game of their NBA Western Conference playoff series.

The Spurs, top seeds in the Western Conference after closing the season on a 10-game win streak, will host to Utah on Wednesday in game two of the best-of-seven series.

Duncan grabbed a game-high 11 rebounds while Parker contributed a game-high eight assists and Stephen Jackson added 14 points for San Antonio, which had not won a playoff series opener in six tries over the past four years.

Parker scored 12 points in the second quarter to spark the Spurs to a 54-47 half-time lead and San Antonio stretched the margin through the second half, the largest edge being 104-87 with two minutes remaining.
