Burks scores 21 as Jazz pull away from Pelicans 101-87

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - -

Alec Burks scored 21 points and the Utah Jazz beat the New Orleans Pelicans 101-87 on Saturday night.
    
The Jazz have won two straight, matching their season high.
    
Rodney Hood scored 16 for the Jazz, Gordon Hayward chipped in 17 and Trevor Booker had 13 points and 15 rebounds for his first double-double of the season. Center Rudy Gobert added nine points, 14 rebounds and four blocked shots.
    
Pelicans center Anthony Davis was a one-man show for much of the night. He scored 14 of the Pelicans' 16 first-quarter points and finished with 36. Davis also grabbed 11 rebounds and blocked three shots. Teammate Ish Smith came off the bench to score 13 points.
    
New Orleans (4-13) made a push late in the fourth quarter, but crucial buckets from Hayward and Burks stemmed the run.
