SACRAMENTO — 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.

Isaiah Thomas had 24 points and a career-high 12 assists, and Jason Thompson added 10 points and seven rebounds for the Kings. Sacramento has played 13 of its 19 games at home this season, going 4-9.

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. Dallas had won 15 of the previous 16 meetings and was 23-3 against the Kings dating to April 4, 2006.

Dirk Nowitzki had 18 points, Jose Calderon scored 11 and Shane Larkin had 10 for Dallas. Coming off an impressive win Saturday at Portland, the Mavericks shot 40 percent and were 5 of 27 on 3-pointers.

Gay was Toronto’s second-leading scorer this season and has averaged 18 points and 5.9 rebounds in his eight-year career.

The Kings’ three new players will make their debut Wednesday at home against Utah. They sat in a sky box and drew sizable applause when introduced in the opening half.

“This is the NBA and I expect the unexpected,” Kings coach Michael Malone said before the game. “We look at this as an opportunity for us to get a lot more talented and give ourselves a better chance moving forward.”

Sacramento continued to play well offensively in the third quarter, outscoring the Mavericks 35-26 to take a 92-73 lead. Williams made a pair of treys, had two impressive dunks, and scored 13 points. Both Thomas and Cousins had 11 points.

Williams made a short jumper and the next time down court Thomas located him for an alley-oop dunk, putting the Kings ahead 72-59 with just under 7 minutes left in the third quarter.

With Vasquez, the starting point guard gone, Thomas made his first start of the season. The team’s second leading scorer and one of the NBA’s most productive reserves this year, Thomas got off to a great start, getting 10 points and three assists in the first quarter when Sacramento established an 11-point lead.

Cousins had 19 points and 10 rebounds in the opening half. The Kings squandered a 16-point lead in the second quarter, but scored 13 unanswered points in taking a 57-47 lead into the intermission. Ellis scored 13 points for Dallas.

Trailing 15 points late in the first quarter, the Mavericks went on a 22-4 run capped by a 3 from Nowitzki that gave Dallas a 41-38 lead at the 6:57 mark of the second period.

Notes: Williams, who entered the game 2-of-25 from long range, made his first 3-pointer as a King in the opening quarter when he scored nine points. … Sacramento outrebounded the Mavericks, 29-14, in the first half. … Mavericks center DeJuan Blair started his fourth straight game, but was relatively ineffective with four points and four fouls in 14 minutes. … Kings rookie guard Ray McCallum made a jumper with just under a minute to play for his first NBA points. He had played only one minute previously.
