SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - DeMarcus Cousins had 32 points and 19 rebounds, and Derrick Williams scored a career-high 31 to pace the Sacramento Kings to a 112-97 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night.
Using just 10 players, the Kings enjoyed one of their better games offensively all season. They led by 19 points after three quarters and by as many as 24 points in the fourth in winning their second straight.
Earlier in the day, the Kings completed a seven-player deal with Toronto that brought them Rudy Gay, Aaron Gray and Quincy Acy. Greivis Vasquez, Patrick Patterson, John Salmons and Chuck Hayes went to the Raptors.
Monta Ellis had 21 points for the Mavericks, who had won three straight, including the last two on the road. The loss also snapped a five-game win streak against the Kings.
