Notebook: Kings 109, Nuggets 95


Michael Kelly, for NBA.com
Posted Mon Feb 24, 2014 12:39 AM - Updated Mon Feb 24, 2014 12:39 AM

THE FACT: Until the Kings' win Sunday night, the Nuggets were 51-9 at home over the last five seasons against teams traveling from the Pacific Time Zone to play the second game of a back-to-back.

THE LEAD: Rudy Gay scored 32 points and pulled down 11 rebounds, Isaiah Thomas had a game-high 33 points and the Sacramento Kings used a strong third quarter to beat the Denver Nuggets 109-95 on Sunday night at the Pepsi Center.

DeMarcus Cousins had 27 points, nine rebounds, five assists and five blocked shots for the Kings (20-36), who won their second straight.

Guard Evan Fournier came off the bench to score a career-high 27 points -- 20 in the first half -- and Randy Foye also had 27 for the Nuggets (25-30).

Kenneth Faried (10 points) was the only other player to score in double figures for the Nuggets, who have lost seven of eight.

QUOTABLE: "To come in here on a back-to-back is not an easy place to win. It's only happened nine times in the last five years and they were 5-0 this year."
-- Kings coach Mike Malone

THE STAT: The Nuggets' bench outscored Sacramento's reserves 42-7 but were dominated by the big three of Gay, Thomas and Cousins, who combined for 92 points and nearly outscored the entire Denver team. Cousins (22.4), Thomas (20.6) and Gay (20.0) give the Kings the distinction of being the only NBA team with three players averaging at least 20 points a game.

TURNING POINT: The Kings took control with a dominant third quarter. Thomas, Gay and Cousins combined for 35 points as Sacramento outscored Denver 39-18 in the period. Trailing 58-51, the trio sparked a 32-6 run that had the Nuggets on their heels, and they never recovered.

QUOTABLE II: "That third quarter just really did us in."
-- Nuggets coach Brian Shaw

HOT: Thomas was on fire in the second half and for most of the game. He had 13 points at intermission on 5-for-6 shooting and amped it up in the third, when he scored 14 points, including a three-point play with less than a second left on the clock. He finished 11-for-16 from the field.

QUOTABLE III: "Rudy started it off, DeMarcus got easy buckets and I just got what they gave me. I was making open shots. We played a helluva third quarter."
-- Isaiah Thomas

NOT: Nuggets forward Wilson Chandler had four fouls and no points through the first three quarters. Twice he fouled Gay on drives that led to the forward converting three-point plays. Chandler finally got on the board with a 3-pointer a minute into the fourth. He finished with six points.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Gay has been steady for the Kings since coming over from Toronto on Dec. 9. Over the last five games he is averaging 20.8 points and 8.4 rebounds.

GOOD MOVE: The Kings went to Cousins early against Denver's smaller front line and it paid dividends immediately. He scored 11 points in the first quarter and got J.J. Hickson into foul trouble.

BAD MOVE: The Nuggets' defense continues to be awful. They've allowed their opponents to score 100 or more points in 12 of the last 13 games, and over the last seven games they're allowing 114 points per game.

QUOTABLE IV: "We've got to stay together, we've got to keep fighting and keep believing. Everybody goes through times like this during the season. It's important for us to continue to fight, to keep pushing."
-- Randy Foye

ROOKIE WATCH: Kings guard Ben McLemore is going to get more opportunities to shine since the team traded Marcus Thornton to Brooklyn. He didn't have a stellar game, going 2-for-10 from the field, but he didn't force anything on a night his teammates were hot.

NOTABLE: Nuggets guard Aaron Brooks is averaging 13 points and 4.5 assists in his first two games with the team. ... Gay now has six games in his career in which he has scored at least 30 points and grabbed a minimum of 10 rebounds. ... Denver's nine-game home winning streak against Sacramento was snapped. ... Fournier has established a career high in points in consecutive home games.

UP NEXT: For the Kings, Tuesday vs. Houston, Friday @ L.A. Lakers, Saturday vs. Minnesota. For the Nuggets, Tuesday vs. Portland, Thursday vs. Brooklyn, Saturday @ Portland.
