SAN ANTONIO -- Utah point guard George Hill used the lessons he learned in three seasons with San Antonio to hand his former team a rare home loss.Hill had 22 points and the Jazz made a season-high 15 3-pointers, handing the Spurs their first loss of the season, 106-91 on Tuesday night.He had a great game, San Antonio veteran Manu Ginobili said. For three quarters they played good solid basketball and in the fourth he just took over. Made some big shots, good plays off the pick-and-roll. Hes a great player, we know he can do it.Utah handed San Antonio only its second home loss since March 2015. The Spurs didnt lose their first home game last season until April 10 and finished 40-1 at the AT&T Center.Every loss is disappointing to me, said Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard, who had a game-high 30 points. Just disappointed in our defensive effort. Our energy wasnt there in the first quarter. They were knocking down shots in the fourth quarter. They scored 33 in the fourth and thats not good either.Hill made four straight baskets starting with about 6 minutes left in the fourth, scoring 10 points to give the Jazz a 96-88 lead with 4 minutes remaining.The Spurs rallied from an anemic first quarter to take a second-half lead, but Hill helped steady the young Jazz with a court presence he learned under San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich.Play like youve been there before, Hill said. Coach Pop always instilled that into me my first three years here. Dont show really that much emotion, unless its part of the game, but act like youve been there before. Thats what I try to instill in the guys, move onto the next play every time.Utah needed that serenity after nearly blowing a dominant first quarter.We definitely allowed them to play too comfortable and get into a rhythm early on, San Antonio center Pau Gasol said. They were executing well, give them credit, but we didnt put enough pressure on their offense to force them to take tougher shots.The Jazz built a 12-point lead in the opening quarter by shooting 72 percent from the field and 88 percent on 3s. Utah made seven 3-pointers in the first quarter, one more than their previous season high for a game.Some of its just basketball gods, Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. There are nights like that and then there are nights like tonight. The biggest thing for our guys is that they dont get discouraged when they miss and keep shooting.Rodney Hood finished with 19 points, Trey Lyles had 15 and Shelvin Mack 14 for Utah, which finished 15 for 31 from 3-point range.It didnt matter if the Spurs contested the shots or not, Utahs shots were falling in the first quarter. San Antonio didnt panic, sticking to their rotations and sets.The Spurs erased a 47-31 deficit, going on a 15-0 run over a 6-minute span. Leonards 16-foot jumper pulled San Antonio within 47-46 and LaMarcus Aldridges 18-footer tied the game at 48.Aldridge finished with 21 points on 8-for-16 shooting.But Lyles revived Utahs offense, scoring all but two points during a 10-0 run in the third quarter that gave the Jazz a 70-63 lead they would never relinquish.Lyles finished 2 for 7 on 3-point attempts and Hood was 4 for 8.TIP-INSJazz: Mack was 0 for 4 on 3-pointers this season before making his only two attempts against the Spurs. ... F Boris Diaw missed his first game of the season, sitting out against his former team with a bruised right leg. Diaw, who played with San Antonio from 2012-2016, received a loud ovation when his image was shown on the video boards. Hill, who played three seasons in San Antonio, also received a loud ovation. ... Utah was winless in its two road games this season, losing by an average of 11 points.Spurs: San Antonio has a winning record in the regular season for all but 48 days since 1997. ... Jonathan Simmons made his first start of the season. Filling in for Danny Green, Simmons had two points in 29 minutes. Green is sidelined by a strained left quadriceps. ... Tony Parker is 73rd in league history with 1,084 games played, breaking a tie with Antawn Jamison and Dell Curry.UP NEXTJazz: Host Dallas on Wednesday.Spurs: At the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday. Bart Starr Super Bowl Jersey . Oaklands loss to Seattle clinched the ALs best record for the Red Sox with one day to spare in the regular season. "I think everybody was kind of watching," catcher David Ross said. "Demp (Ryan Dempster) came out before he went to the bullpen and was just yelling that they lost. Dexter Williams Super Bowl Jersey . Coach Tom Thibodeau says the former MVP will probably start travelling with the team in the next few weeks.

JK Scott Super Bowl Jersey . -- Ty Montgomery had 290 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns, and fifth-ranked Stanford held on to beat No. FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman, who underwent surgery on his left foot in the offseason, was removed from the physically unable to perform list Sunday as he joined teammates in a full-pads practice for the first time.Edelman didnt fully participate in the practice, which was mostly a scrimmage, but went through some drills early before spending time on the side working with quarterback Tom Brady.It feels good. To get out there and get to see the fellas in pads, thats the fun thing about this time of the year, said Edelman, who broke a bone in his left foot in a Nov. 15 game against the New York Giants and was sidelined until the playoffs. Any time you can go out and put pads on and practice before the season, I think its a good sign.Edelman underwent a follow-up surgery in the offseason to strengthen the area around a screw in his foot. That surgery, which was considered a cleanup procedure, was always considered a possibility when Edelman returned for the playoffs.But Edelmans availability for the start of the 2016 regular season was never seriously in question, with the club taking aa cautious, patient approach with him at the start of training camp.ddddddddddddEdelman, 30, is the projected top receiver for the Patriots and has emerged as one of Bradys go-to options, starting in 2013 when he totaled a career-high 105 receptions. He followed that with a 92-catch campaign in 2014, and had 61 catches at the time of his injury in the ninth regular-season game last year.On returning to practice, he called it a process of trying to get his fundamentals back.Knock off all the rust and all that stuff, he said.Edelman is joined by free-agent signee Chris Hogan, slot receiver Danny Amendola and 2016 fourth-round draft pick Malcolm Mitchell atop the depth chart, with a group of receivers competing for what could be one or two additional spots. Coach Bill Belichick recently told Sirius XM NFL Radio that the receiver competition is probably the best hes seen in his 17 years with the club.Amendola, who underwent surgery on his left knee and an ankle this offseason, remains on the PUP list.
