NBA Game Summary - Brooklyn at Sacramento



(Wednesday, November 13th)

Final Score: Sacramento 107, Brooklyn 86

Sacramento, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Marcus Thornton scored a game-high 24 points to lead the Sacramento Kings in a 107-86 rout of the Brooklyn Nets at Sleep Train Arena.

Isaiah Thomas added 19 points and Greivis Vasquez had 17 points and 12 assists for the Kings, who snapped a five-game skid.

"It's good...first win in November," Thomas said of snapping the skid. "Every win is important and you're only as good as your last game so I feel like we're pretty good right now."

Brook Lopez scored 16 points to go with nine rebounds, while Deron Williams and Shaun Livingston finished with 13 points apiece for the Nets, who are off to a disappointing 2-5 start.

"There's a process that we have to go through," Nets head coach Jason Kidd said of the team's struggles. "This is something that you're going to go through as a team at some point in the season it just happens that we're going through it a little bit earlier than we expected."

The Kings led 23-19 after a back-and-forth first quarter.

Thornton, who buried four 3-pointers, capped a 19-5 run with a trey from the corner to give Sacramento a 41-23 lead just past the midway point of the quarter.

Brooklyn clawed its way back into the game as Paul Pierce buried a pair of free throws to make it 43-36 with 2:10 remaining, but the Kings closed the half with a 9-4 flurry for a 52-40 spread.

Sacramento's lead swelled to 23 several times in the third quarter, and Brooklyn couldn't get closer than 13 the rest of the way.
