Recap: Sacramento vs. Orlando

Sacramento, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - DeMarcus Cousins recorded his ninth straight double-double with 24 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Sacramento Kings to a 103-83 win over the Orlando Magic from Sleep Train Arena.

Tobias Harris led Orlando with 16 points and Glen Davis deposited a 12-point, 12-rebound double-double in the Magic's sixth straight loss.

"The shots weren't falling, but at the same time we still have to defend and be able to hold down that floor," Harris said. "I'll give them the credit, they made a lot of tough shots and their offense was clicking and rolling."
