Thomas, Gay push Kings past Nuggets 109-95

DENVER (AP) - Isaiah Thomas scored 33 points, Rudy Gay had 32 and the Sacramento Kings routed the Nuggets 109-95 on Sunday night for their first win in Denver in six years.

DeMarcus Cousins added 27 points for the Kings, who snapped a nine-game losing streak to the Nuggets at the Pepsi Center. It was Sacramento's first win in the Mile High City since a 118-115 victory on April 5, 2008. The Kings have won three of their last four games overall.

Thomas, Gay and Cousins combined to score 92 of Sacramento's 109 points.

On Saturday, the Kings defeated the Boston Celtics in Sacramento. The Kings swept the back-to-back set with Denver as the second game for the first time since doing so in December 2002.

Randy Foye and Evan Fournier each scored 27 points for the slumping Nuggets, who lost for the seventh time in the last eight games. The Nuggets fell to 1-5 without leading scorer Ty Lawson, who missed a sixth game because of a fractured left rib.
