Kings vs. Cavaliers final score: Sacramento goes streaking, wins 124-80

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Kings annihilated Cleveland. Like, it was ugly beautiful.

The Sacramento Kings have won three straight games after annihilating the Cleveland Cavaliers at home 124-80. Yep, a 44-point win for the Kings. Isaiah Thomas outscored Kyrie Irving 26 to seven. Irving shot 3-14 from the floor; Isaiah and Ben McLemore each defended him. He looked pretty awful except for one spurt in the third. His defense was pretty poor outside of the first quarter, too.

Rudy Gay was a modern-day Kevin Martin with 20 points on 8-12 shooting. DeMarcus Cousins was strong and efficient with 16 points on 5-9 shooting and 10 rebounds. Derrick Williams and Jimmer Fredette were nice off the bench too, offering up 13 each. But the story of the game might have been Jason Thompson, who finished with eight points and 16 big rebounds, including six on the offensive end. He utterly destroyed former No. 4 pick Tristan Thompson (6 points, 3 rebounds).

Cleveland won the first quarter by two points. The Kings went +46 over the last 36 minutes.

Now to the road and, specifically, Indiana on Tuesday. Until then, we dance.
