Sacramento grabs rare road win behind Thompson, Cousins; beat Cavaliers 97-94

ASSOCIATED PRESS

CLEVELAND — Jason Thompson scored 19 points and DeMarcus Cousins added 18 points tonight, 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.
