Kings 98, Raptors 91: DeMarcus Cousins, Isaiah Thomas Put In Monster Nights In Sacramento's First Road Win

The Sacramento Kings earned their first road win of the season on Wednesday, beating the Toronto Raptors 98-91. The Kings had been 0-5 with an averaging losing margin of 23 points away from The Gymmer coming in, but a strong fourth quarter led Sactown to sweet victory.

DeMarcus Cousins had a monster night with 21 points and a career-high 19 rebounds. He started off well with eight points in the first quarter, and controlled the boards throughout. Isaiah Thomas had the best game of his young NBA career, scoring 20 points on 6-12 shooting with six assists in 23 minutes. Tyreke Evans had a big scoring night with 29, but shot just 7-22 from the floor (including 4-14 in the first half). But Evans was perfect from the line, hitting 14-14 including some big ones down the stretch. Making an impact when the shot isn't falling is right in Evans' wheelhouse.

As a team, the Kings went 31-34 from the line, something that would have seemed impossible in the first week of the season.

The Kings are now 4-7, and play at Houston on Friday and at Dallas on Saturday.
