SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - DeMarcus Cousins made a jumper as time expired and finished with 28 points and 12 rebounds, giving the Sacramento Kings an 85-83 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Sunday night.

Cousins rescued the Kings from a fourth straight loss. Sacramento squandered a 14-point lead in the final quarter when it was outscored 24-12.

But Cousins launched a 19-footer from the key that hit the rim several times before settling into the basket, setting of a huge celebration at midcourt by the struggling Kings.

Isaiah Thomas had 14 of his 26 points in the fourth quarter for the Suns, who have dropped four of five games. Goran Dragic added 13 points.
