DeMarcus Cousins could not be stopped as the Sacramento Kings ended their six-game losing streak by beating the Utah Jazz 112-102 in overtime. Cousins scored 28 points on 10-15 shooting with six rebounds, three blocks and two steals. Isaiah Thomas added 26 points on 8-14 shooting with eight assists off of the bench.
Ben McLemore hit the biggest shot of the night, an open three with less than five seconds left to knot the game at 97. Before that point, McLemore had been 4-14. He added another jumper in overtime to finish with 15 and a career-high nine rebounds. McLemore also played more minutes than any other King (38).
With the win, the Kings ensure they do not have the league's worst record. (The Bucks also needed to win to make that happen; the Bucks lost to the Nets.) The Kings are now 5-13. They next play Monday back in Sacramento as the Mavericks visit for the first time this season.
