Gay, Cousins lead Kings past Rockets, 110-106

HOUSTON (AP) — Rudy Gay had 25 points and DeMarcus Cousins took over late in the fourth quarter to lift the Sacramento Kings to a 110-106 victory over the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night.

The Kings trailed by three points before Cousins scored four quick points to make it 105-104. He then stole the ball from James Harden and passed to Ben McLemore for an easy layup.

On the next play, Cousin took a charge from Harden to give the Kings the ball back.

The late comeback ruined a big night by Harden, who finished with a season-high 38 points and had 10 rebounds and two steals.

Gay has scored at least 20 points in seven of his 10 games since being traded from Toronto. Cousins had 17 points, 16 rebounds and four steals, and Marcus Thornton added 15 points.
