Recap: Sacramento vs. LA Lakers

Sacramento, CA ( - Omri Casspi had 26 points, nine rebounds and six assists as the Sacramento Kings defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 102-92 on Monday night.

Derrick Williams netted 20 points off the bench, while Jason Thompson added 10 points and 10 boards for the Kings, who had dropped eight of their last nine games coming in.

"I can't deny that I'm a little disappointed that I didn't get a little bit more out of them... We'll have a good (draft) pick and I think where we're at, it's gotta be a good pick," Kings coach George Karl said.

Jordan Clarkson posted 23 points, six assists and five rebounds and Jordan Hill supplied 18 points and six boards for Los Angeles, which has lost seven of its last eight contests.

Clarkson, though, left the game in the fourth quarter with a left ankle sprain.

"Just a little sore right, obviously we will know a little bit more tomorrow," Lakers coach Byron Scott said of the ankle.
