Kings vs. Magic final score: Sacramento beats Orlando 105-100

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Rudy Gay led the way as the Kings finished the road trip with a win.

The Kings eked out a win in Orlando, beating the Magic 105-100 to finish their first extended road trip of the season 1-3. Rudy Gay led the Kings with 23 points, but shot 8-20 to get there. He did well in the late second quarter and second half after starting the game 0-5. Isaiah Thomas added 23 points and 9 assists while shooting 8-15 from the floor. The Kings held Orlando to 48% shooting from the floor, which is a lot better than 62%.

Marcus Thornton hit some shots off the bench. He went 6-10 (3-5 on threes) for 15 points in 22 minutes. DeMarcus Cousins finished with 14 points and 11 rebounds.

The Kings' defense was pretty loose in the first half, but Orlando's poor offense shone through in the second half. Sacramento did a better job preventing open shots in the third. We'll have a full defensive breakdown in the morning in addition to Akis' Good, Bad and Ugly.

The Kings host the Pelicans on Monday.
