|DeMarcus Cousins of the Kings goes up for a shot against the Lakers on Sunday. Photo: CFP The Sacramento Kings finally found the right remedy to end a monthlong bout of bad news: a healthy DeMarcus Cousins and a struggling Kobe Bryant.
Cousins had 29 points and 14 rebounds in his second start since returning from a serious illness Jonathan Biabiany Jersey , and the Kings snapped a five-game losing streak with a 108-101 victory over the Los Angeles -Lakers on Sunday.
"It seems like forever since we had a win," Cousins said. "So it feels good to get a win."
The victory provided a brief reprieve for Sacramento and their franchise centerpiece.
The Kings had lost 10 of 12 games - going 2-8 while Cousins recovered from viral meningitis - and fired coach Michael Malone in the previous week. There also has been constant speculation about how long interim coach Tyrone Corbin will man the sidelines and reports of possible -player trades.
For at least one day, though, Sacramento shook off all the talk - and a shaky first half - for a much-needed win. Rudy Gay scored 24 points, and Ben -McLemore added 23 points and eight rebounds to help the Kings pull away late.
Sacramento improved to 10-7 with Cousins in the lineup.
"The guys are coming -together Joao Mario Jersey ," said Corbin, who won for the first time in three games since Malone's dismissal.
Nick Young scored 26 points, and Bryant had 25 for the Lakers, who have lost six of eight and are buried at the bottom of the Pacific Division. Bryant shot just eight of 30 and had nine of the Lakers' 17 turnovers. He also had five -rebounds and three assists.
"Obviously, I have had tough moments Joao Cancelo Jersey ," Bryant said.
In what has been a downtime for California's once-proud NBA franchise, the Kings showed their rebuilding process might be -further along than the Lakers.
Cousins is still working his way back into shape but was as animated as ever, often talking between plays and overpowering defenders during them. He shot nine of 19 and had three blocks, two assists and two steals.
But the Lakers still gave the Kings trouble most of the way.
Young started a four-point play while getting fouled by Gay near the top of the arc, lifting the -Lakers to an 89-83 lead in the fourth quarter that -quickly -evaporated. Gay followed with a three--pointer Jeison Murillo Jersey , and -Derrick Williams had a tying three-point play the next time down.
The teams traded baskets before Sacramento's finishing burst put the game out of reach.
Cousins highlighted the decisive run when he came up with a defensive -rebound and threw a bounce pass ahead to Darren Collison, who took a couple of dribbles before tossing a no-look alley-oop to McLemore that put the Kings up 99-91 with 4:02 remaining.
"I think we responded well," Cousins said. "This is a way for us to move on from that situation and keep on the path we had been playing on this season."
