SALT LAKE CITY, May 7 (UPI) -- Manu Ginobili came off the bench to put in 17 points Monday and the San Antonio Spurs wrapped up their first-round playoff series with an 87-81 win over Utah.

Tim Duncan and Tony Parker each contributed 11 points as top-seeded San Antonio completed a four-game sweep of the Jazz in its Western Conference quarterfinal playoff series.

The Spurs, who were eliminated by Memphis in the first round last year in a shocking upset, will now go on to meet the winner of the Memphis-Los Angeles Clippers series.

San Antonio drained 10 three-pointers in the victory, while Utah went 0-for-13 from long range in the contest.

Al Jefferson netted 26 points and grabbed 10 boards, while Derrick Favors added 16 and 10 for Utah.
