Recap: Sacramento vs. Orlando

Sacramento, CA (Sports Network) - DeMarcus Cousins posted 17 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Sacramento Kings past the Orlando Magic, 91-82, on Friday.

Isaiah Thomas also dropped in 17 points, while Jimmer Fredette scored 15, Jason Thompson poured in 12 and Aaron Brooks contributed 11 for the Kings, who won consecutive games for the first time since Nov. 5-7.

"It feels great to just continue to go out there, play well, play hard and ultimately try to get wins. That's what it's all about," said Fredette.

Glen Davis paced the Magic with 20 points and 11 rebounds in Orlando's second straight loss.

Arron Afflalo netted 18 points, Jameer Nelson had 17 and Andrew Nicholson finished with 14 in defeat.

Orlando trailed, 46-34, entering the third quarter, but Nelson sank a pair of 3-pointers and netted eight points as the Magic responded to John Salmons' opening runner with a 25-6 run to take a 59-54 lead on Afflalo's triple with 4 1/2 minutes left in the third.

The Kings would close their gap to 64-62 heading into the fourth quarter, and were later able to take advantage of a four-minute stretch without a basket by Orlando with a 9-0 burst to regain a 73-68 lead on a Fredette jumper with just under seven minutes left in the game.

Sacramento stretched its advantage up to as much as nine points before Davis converted a three-point play and Nelson drained a shot from beyond the arc to make it a 79-76 game with 3:39 remaining.

Afflalo's driving layup following a Fredette jumper later brought the Magic back within three, but the Magic would make just one more shot from the floor over the final two-plus minutes and Sacramento was able to put the game away at the foul line.

"Offensively I think we had good shots," Davis said. "We should have made those shots. I know I had some really good looks that I missed, but we just got to make sure that we finish a game."

Orlando held an early 6-2 lead before a Francisco Garcia 3-pointer sparked an 18-3 run that gave Sacramento a 20-9 advantage with less than three minutes to play in the first quarter.

The Kings carried a 25-16 edge into the second and were able to maintain at least a seven-point lead in the frame until Afflalo scored the final four points of a 6-0 spurt to bring the Magic within 36-32 with a little over five minutes left.

Sacramento, though, closed out the second quarter with a 10-2 run to take a 46-34 edge into the break.
