Cousins and Rondo came up big for the Kings

DeMarcus Cousins had 29 points and 11 rebounds and the Sacramento Kings beat the Phoenix Suns 116-94 on Friday night.

It was a rare home victory for Sacramento, which had dropped seven straight at Sleep Train Arena since defeating Denver nearly five weeks ago. The Kings entered the game having lost two straight and 9 of 11.

Rookie Willie Cauley-Stein had a career-high 26 points for the Kings, who broke the game open in the third quarter. Rudy Gay had 15 points, Quincy Acy had 14, Seth Curry had 12 and Darren Collison had 11.

Devin Booker led Phoenix with 26 points but also committed nine turnovers, including eight in the first half. Alex Len had 14 points, Mirza Teletovic had 12 and John Jenkins added 11 points and seven assists.

Rajon Rondo, the NBA assist leader this season, had 12 assists and passed Reggie Theus' Sacramento-era single-season franchise assist record that was established in 1985-86.
