DeMarcus Cousins Monstrous Performance Not Enough, Kings Fall To Rockets In Overtime

The Sacramento Kings (a miserable team away from home) looked like they were going to notch a big road win on Monday night, but they sputtered down the stretch and eventually fell to the Houston Rockets in overtime.

Sacramento received one of the best performances on the season from DeMarcus Cousins, who put up 38 points and 14 rebounds on 15-26 shooting, but Cousins didn’t touch the ball much in the final period. Sacramento relied on Marcus Thornton down the stretch (he put up 27 points on 9-22 shooting and hit a few big shots), but the rest of the team shot 17-48 and could provide very little support down the stretch. Sacramento shot 42.7% from the field and 27.8% on their three pointers; Houston wasn’t much better, but they did hit 48.3% from the field and 85.2% from the line.

The Kings let Patrick Patterson go off, as he had a career high 24 points and drained the game-tying basket to send the contest into overtime. Luis Scola added 18 points and 14 rebounds and Goran Dragic put in 14 points and 10 assists in solid support. Courtney Lee, Chandler Parsons, Chase Budinger and Earl Boykins all ended up with double-digit point totals. The Kings got 12 points from Tyreke Evans and 10 points from Terrence Williams.
