Another day, another history-making performance for De'Aaron Fox.

The surging sophomore continued his impressive play on Friday against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Fox finished with 30 points — a single point shy of tying his career-high — to go along with 12 assists on 75 percent shooting.

De'Aaron entered elite company with his outing, becoming the first Kings player since Mike Bibby in 2005-06 to surpass 30 points and 10 assists multiple times in a season.

"I always tell Coach Larry [Lewis] if I make my first three," Fox explained. "I know I'm going to have a really good game shooting the ball."

Sactown is now 2-0 on their current road trip, beating the Cavs 129-110 thanks to Fox's performance and contributions from multiple players.

Since December began, No. 5 is now averaging 20.3 points and 8.3 assists on 48 percent shooting, including 63 percent from deep.

The Kings are back in action Saturday, facing off with the Indiana Pacers in a rematch of last week's nail biter where Sactown came out on top.
