De’Aaron Fox had 20 points and the Kings snapped a four-game skid with a 111-95 win over the Orlando Magic.
Getting a little swagger back after blowing fourth-quarter leads in all four of those defeats, the Kings went ahead by double digits in a dominant second period and led by 28 entering the fourth.
“We’ve given a few games away, so it’s good to come out and control the whole way,” Fox said. “It’s great to have a game like this.”
Playing in their somewhat frenetic offensive style, the Kings were running at every opportunity, especially early when they established the tempo. They outscored the Magic 24-12 in fast-break points and were even more dominant in the paint, owning a 64-24 edge.
Bogdan Bogdanovic had 15 points and seven assists for the Kings, and his 32 minutes marked the most by any starter. Willie Cauley-Stein added 11 points and 11 rebounds, and Justin Jackson also had 11 points.
Terrence Ross hit five 3-pointers and scored 20 points and Nikola Vucevic had 18 points and 13 rebounds for Orlando, which has dropped three straight and eight of 11.
