SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Chris Bosh scored 30 points and Luol Deng had 25 to lead the Miami Heat to a 95-83 win over the Sacramento Kings on Friday night.

Miami used a solid defensive effort in containing Kings high-scoring center DeMarcus Cousins and rode the scoring of Bosh and Deng to the victory. Miami went 3-2 on its road trip.

Making his second start of the season, rookie point guard Shabazz Napier had 12 points, five assists and six rebounds for Miami.

Miami's leading scorer, Dwyane Wade, missed his second straight game with a hamstring strain. Wade, who turns 33 Saturday, also sat seven games in November with a hamstring injury.

Cousins had 17 points and 11 rebounds for the Kings, who lost their second straight and third in four games.
