SACRAMENTO, CA - DeMarcus Cousins had 21 points and 16 rebounds while Tyreke Evans and John Salmons each scored 21 points to help the Sacramento Kings beat the Washington Wizards 95-94 on Wednesday night.
With the score tied, Evans was fouled on a drive to the basket with 11.4 seconds left. He made one of two free throws to give the Kings a 95-94 lead.
Bradley Beal missed a runner in the closing seconds and John Wall followed with a desperation shot from inside the foul lane that never hit the rim.
Jimmer Fredette scored all 12 of his points for the Kings in the second half and Sacramento outscored the Wizards 23-17 in the fourth quarter.
Beal scored 26 points, including six 3-pointers, for the Wizards, who had their three-game winning streak snapped. They have the worst record (7-29) in the NBA and are also a league worst 1-16 on the road.
