SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Paul Millsap scored 20 points, Enes Kanter had 18 in his first career start and the Utah Jazz hit 13 3-pointers to rout the Toronto Raptors 131-99 on Friday night.

Gordon Hayward added 17 points off the bench as Utah improved to 8-1 at home. Marvin Williams, Randy Foye and DeMarre Carroll all made three 3-pointers for the Jazz, who finished 13 for 23 from beyond the arc.

The Jazz hit five 3s in a 3 1/2-minute span of the second quarter to build a 14-point lead after trailing by as many as 10 early. They hit seven more in the second half and led by as many as 34 in the game, a stark contrast to the triple-overtime thriller the Jazz won on Nov. 12 in Toronto.
