SACRAMENTO — Kemba Walker scored 30 points, Al Jefferson had a season-high 27 and the Charlotte Bobcats snapped a season-high five-game losing streak with a 113-103 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Saturday night.

The Bobcats had lost their previous two games by a combined 57 points, but took the lead with 17 unanswered points in the second quarter.

It was Charlotte’s only win on its five-game road trip.

DeMarcus Cousins had 26 points and 11 rebounds and Isaiah Thomas added 21 points and eight assists for the Kings, who are 6-13 at home this season. Rudy Gay scored 17 points and Jason Thompson contributed 14 points and 12 rebounds.

Jefferson came up big in the fourth quarter when the Kings were threatening, scoring 10 points.

Walker, who had six points on 2-of-10 shooting against Portland, made 12-of-19 against the Kings and added six assists.

After the Kings cut the lead to four points, Jefferson scored on Cousins goal tend and then made a short jump hook, giving Charlotte an eight-point lead. After Thompson made a free throw for Sacramento, Jefferson extended the lead to 109-100 with an 18-footer with 1:56 left.

Gay tipped in his own shot and Cousins followed with a basket from close range, pulling Sacramento to within 99-96 at the 6:09 mark.

After a subpar first half, Cousins got going in the third quarter when he scored 16 points and helped cut the Bobcats’ 13-point halftime lead to 89-82 entering the fourth. Walker hit four 3-pointers and also had 16 points in the third.

Gay and Thompson both scored 14 points in the first half for the Kings.
