SACRAMENTO, CA - Wayne Ellington poured in 19 of his career- high 26 points in the second half as the Memphis Grizzlies rolled to a 113-81 victory over the Sacramento Kings at Sleep Train Arena.

Ellington missed on only one of his 11 field goal attempts and went a scorching 6-of-7 from 3-point range, and the Grizzlies outscored Sacramento by a lopsided 62-36 margin after halftime en route to a second straight win on their current road trip.

Zach Randolph added 17 points and seven rebounds, Mike Conley compiled 15 points and eight assists, and three other Memphis players scored in double figures on the evening.

John Salmons paced the Kings with 17 points, but only four came over the final two quarters. Leading scorer DeMarcus Cousins was held to 10 points on 3-of-9 shooting as Sacramento was dealt a second consecutive defeat following a 4-1 stretch.
