Kings extend Philly’s skid

From page B1 | March 13, 2014 |

PHILADELPHIA — The Sacramento Kings were keenly aware of the streak.

They just didn’t feel the need to talk about it.

Instead, they went out and played the attacking style their coaches want to see.

Rudy Gay scored 27 points, Isaiah Thomas added 20 and the Kings were 40-for-50 from the free-throw line on their way to defeating Philadelphia, 115-98, on Wednesday to extend the 76ers’ losing streak to 18 games.

“To be honest, we didn’t mention it once,” Sacramento coach Michael Malone said of the losing streak.

The Sixers haven’t won since a 95-94 victory at Boston on Jan. 29.

On Wednesday, DeMarcus Cousins had 19 points and 12 rebounds, and Ben McLemore scored 15 points for the Kings, who snapped a three-game skid. Jason Thompson added 14.

“I’m from around here so I know about it,” Thompson said. “You don’t try to put extra pressure on yourself. Obviously, you don’t want to lose to any team.”

The Kings are in the midst of a seven-game, 12-day road trip, their longest of the season. They are 2-3 on the trip.

Henry Sims posted career-highs of 20 points and 10 rebounds, James Anderson added 17 points and Thaddeus Young had 16 for Philadelphia, which fell to 15-49 in dropping its 14th in a row at home, an ongoing franchise record.

Michael Carter-Williams had 13 points, seven rebounds and two assists just two nights after earning his second career triple-double with 23 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists at New York.

The Sixers held a nine-point advantage in the first quarter before falling behind 58-54 at halftime.

After a subpar first half, Cousins had 12 points and seven rebounds in the third quarter to help the Kings extend their lead to 90-76.

“We played good ball (Wednesday),” Cousins said. “We did a pretty decent job defensively. Still made some mistakes (Wednesday), but we’ll take the win. We had some spurts where we let up. I feel we did a lot better than we did in some of the previous games, but we did step forward (Wednesday), so let’s just continue to take steps forward and get a little streak going.”

Notes: Cousins earned his 40th double-double and his sixth in the last seven games. … Gay was 16-for-19 from the free-throw line, both career highs. … The Kings failed to register one assist in the first quarter and had just six at halftime.
