Kings upend Warriors 105-98 for rare road win

  • Kings center DeMarcus Cousins, right, collides with the Warriors' Andrew Bogut, left, in the first half Wednesday in Oakland.

OAKLAND — If the Golden State Warriors can hold on and make the playoffs, they'll be thankful the Sacramento Kings are not standing in their way.

Isaiah Thomas had 31 points and seven assists, DeMarcus Cousins scored 14 points and the Kings put another dent in Golden State's playoff chase by beating the Warriors 105-98 on Wednesday night.

Sacramento, which entered the game an NBA-worst 6-30 on the road, won the season series 3-1.

"I'm just glad we don't have to face them in a seven-game series right now," Warriors coach Mark Jackson said.

Marcus Thornton added 13 points off the bench, and Tyreke Evans overcame a stomach ailment to score 12 points as Sacramento harassed Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson all night. The Warriors backcourt tandem combined to shoot 6 of 31 from the field.
