CLEVELAND (AP) -- Jason Thompson scored 19 points and DeMarcus Cousins added 18 points Wednesday night, leading the Sacramento Kings to their second road win of the season, 97-94 over the Cleveland Cavaliers. John Salmons' 3-pointer from the corner with 52.9 seconds remaining gave Sacramento the lead for good, 92-90. The win broke a seven-game losing streak away from home for the Kings, who are 2-13 on the road and played without injured guards Tyreke Evans and Marcus Thornton, their second and third leading scorers. Kyrie Irving scored 22 points to lead Cleveland, which has lost nine of 11 and is 3-11 at Quicken Loans Arena, where it has dropped five straight. Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao, the league's leading rebounder, missed his seventh straight game with a bruised right knee.

Suddenly revitalized, Cousins lifting Kings

CLEVELAND -- DeMarcus Cousins is standing near his locker in the visitors dressing room, dancing and playfully yelling at teammates scattered across the room. Hey, stop singing in the shower, man, Cousins says, to no avail. Its as if hes making noise just for the sake of it. Since no one is actually responding, its fairly evident the fourth-year center hasn't quite emerged...

Pistons better off without Cousins

DETROIT -- DeMarcus Cousins is a very talented NBA player. That doesn't mean the Pistons should try to get him. Cousins was chosen by the Sacramento Kings with the fifth overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, two slots ahead of Greg Monroe. Because the two play the same position and the Pistons were interested in Cousins back then, people often link the two players. With Cousins...

NBA GM: 'Asking price on Cousins is way too high right now'

Kurt Helin had a good update on the ongoing DaMarcus Cousins situation over at NBC Sports. A few interesting things from the article; first, that Kings GM Geoff Petrie flat out said that Cousins was not on the trading block. You can put that one to rest. He’s not going anywhere. You can lay that to rest. Some of that stuff lives in its own reality. While this is what a lot of...

King’s GM: Cousins “not going anywhere”

Cousins' new attitude lifts Kings over Cavaliers

CLEVELAND -- Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins isn't exactly a choir boy. He's been suspended three times this season. But when the 6-foot-11, 270-pounder shows up ready to play, he's one of the top big men in the Western Conference. Cousins had 18 points, a game-high 16 rebounds and one block in the Kings' 97-94 victory over the Cavaliers on Wednesday...

Kings beat Cavaliers on road and other thoughts

Well it's been awhile since I compared Boogie Cuz to Marvin from The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (and I'm right dammit!), but well, apparently DeMarcus Cousins got the message about what passing actually means from the right spots on the floor. It's amazing (and depressing) that the best passer on this team is Cousins who also leads the team in Field Goal attempts...

Box Score: Kings 97, Cavaliers 94

This game brought some big changes for the Cavaliers. First of all, Tristan Thompson was playing without his mask. This game also saw Shaun Livingston make his Wine and Gold debut. But the big change was Coach Scott’s decision to start CJ Miles and bring Dion Waiters off the bench. In the first half, the move paid off as CJ Miles had a big first quarter and then Dion Waiters followed...

Cavaliers (7-25) vs. Kings (11-20) - Game 33

OPENING TIP The Kings arrive as one of the leagues most discussed teams, but for all the wrong reasons. DeMarcus Cousins, their talented young center, has been suspended for a shouting match with coach Keith Smart, one of the most laid-back people in world history. Itd be a surprise if Cousins is still with the team following the trading deadline. The Cavs, meanwhile, have lost...
