DeMarcus Cousins had 34 points and 17 rebounds, Rudy Gay added 25 points, and the Kings handed the poor-shooting Clippers their first loss in three games this season, 98-92.

Clippers were held to 0 of 12 from 3-point range in the fourth quarter by Kings. Cousins scored the Kings’ first eight points of the game, and he had 11 points in the third when they cut a 10-point deficit to four heading into the fourth.
