SCOREBOARD
Tuesday, May 29
Detroit at Cleveland (8 p.m. EDT). The Cavaliers look to pull even with the Pistons in the Eastern Conference finals.

STAR
Monday
- Tim Duncan, Spurs, had 19 points, nine rebounds and five blocked shots as San Antonio took a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference finals with a 91-79 victory over Utah.

STRONG IN DEFEAT
Utah point guard Deron Williams had 27 points, 10 assists and three steals playing with a stomach flu, but the Jazz fell one game away from elimination with a 91-79 Game 4 loss to San Antonio on Monday night in the Western Conference finals.

SCORING
San Antonio hit more free throws (30) than field goals (28) in its 91-79 victory over Utah on Monday night, giving the Spurs a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference finals. The Spurs shot twice as many free throws (41) as the Jazz (20).

IN DOUBT
Cleveland's starting point guard Larry Hughes is listed as doubtful for Game 4 against Detroit on Tuesday night after spraining his left foot in the first quarter of the Cavaliers' 88-82 win on Sunday. Hughes' injury has been diagnosed as a strain of the left foot plantar fascia.

SNAPPED
San Antonio got its first playoff win in Salt Lake City, 91-79 Monday night to take a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference finals. The Spurs had been 0-9 counting losses in 1994, '96, '98 and Saturday night. They also were 0-3 in Salt Lake City this season.

SPEAKING
``We just couldn't keep them off the free-throw line. I don't want to talk about those (technical fouls) because all that does is give me more trouble.'' - Utah coach Jerry Sloan after being ejected with two technicals from Monday night's 91-79 loss to San Antonio in the Western Conference finals.
