SACRAMENTO, Calif. — DeMarcus Cousins had 32 points and 12 rebounds and Isaiah Thomas had 30 points and eight assists in the Sacramento Kings' 124-107 victory Sunday that sent the Milwaukee Bucks to their seventh straight loss.

The Kings demonstrated early they would not be overlooking the struggling Bucks. Sacramento led by 23 points after one quarter, took a 70-44 lead into halftime, and were ahead by 34 points after three quarters.

Rudy Gay had 24 points and eight rebounds and Ben McLemore scored 15 points for the Kings, who had dropped four of their past five home games against the Bucks.

Cousins scored in a variety of ways and the Bucks were never able to contain the talented Kings center. He made 14 of 19 shots, four of six free throws and added four assists and two steals.

O.J. Mayo scored 21 points for Milwaukee.
