Recap: Denver vs. Sacramento

Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Isaiah Thomas scored 33 points on 12-of-16 shooting in the Sacramento Kings' 109-95 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Sunday.

Rudy Gay added 32 points and 11 rebounds for the Kings, who have won three of four. DeMarcus Cousins tallied 27 points, nine boards, five assists and five blocks.

Sacramento snapped a nine-game losing streak to the Nuggets at the Pepsi Center. It was the Kings' first win in the Mile High City since a 118-115 victory on April 5, 2008.

Evan Fournier had a career-high 27 points to go along with five assists for the Nuggets, who have dropped two straight and seven of eight. Randy Foye donated 27 points and six rebounds.

"Ultimately, they had three guys that we couldn't stop," Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said. "Between Isaiah Thomas, DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay, they had 92 points."

Denver took a 52-48 lead into the locker room after leading by as many as 13.

Foye made consecutive 3-pointers early in the third quarter to give the Nuggets a 58-51 edge.

But the rest of the period was dominated by the Kings. Cousins made back-to- back jumpers to cap a 10-0 run, making it 61-58 Sacramento.

After Kenneth Faried made a jumper for Denver, the Kings went on an 11-0 surge. Gay tallied six points during the burst that Thomas capped with a 3- pointer for a 72-60 lead.

Sacramento shot 61.1 percent from the field in the third to take an 87-70 margin into the fourth. Thomas and Gay scored 14 and 13 points, respectively, as the Kings put up 39 points in the third frame.

"We were getting stops first and foremost," Thomas said. "We got stops and got out and ran. That's when we are at our best, when we are in transition and being in attack mode. It starts on the defensive end."

Denver never got closer than 10 in the fourth.
