DeMarcus Cousins, Tyreke Evans, Sacramento Kings Dominate Fourth Quarter To Beat New Orleans Hornets 100-92

The Sacramento Kings looked like they were on the verge of yet another tough road loss against the hapless New Orleans Hornets, as they trailed by double digits at halftime. But an incredible 31-14 finish to the game helped propel Sacramento to victory down the stretch. The Kings used eight three pointers and 47% shooting to notch the win in this one.

DeMarcus Cousins nearly had his second straight 20-20 game, finishing with 28 points and 19 rebounds. Tyreke Evans had a strong fourth quarter to finish with 20 points. Isaiah Thomas had 17 points and six assists off the bench (including perhaps the most critical basket on a prayer three), and John Salmons and Marcus Thornton both finished in double figures.

It's only Sacramento's third road victory on the season, but the Kings now have won three in a row and are moving closer back to respectability at 9-15.
