Orlando, FL (Sports Network) - John Salmons had 21 points and Marcus Thornton scored 20, as the Sacramento Kings snapped a nine-game road skid with a 125-101 rout of the Orlando Magic.

The Kings pushed Miami to double-overtime on Tuesday, and one night later snapped a season-high six-game losing streak.

Tyreke Evans contributed 17 points and seven assists for the Kings, who also received 13 points apiece from DeMarcus Cousins, Patrick Patterson and Jimmer Fredette.

The Magic failed to build on a 14-point win at Philadelphia the night before and lost for the sixth time in seven contests. Tobias Harris led the way with 23 points for Orlando, which also got 15 points from Arron Afflalo and 14 from Beno Udrih.
