Kings complete first season sweep of Lakers, 106-98
LOS ANGELES (AP) Darren Collison had 22 points in his ninth start of the season, DeMarcus Cousins also scored 22 and the Sacramento Kings completed a four-game season sweep of the Los Angeles Lakers with a 106-98 victory Tuesday night.
The Lakers, who trailed by as many as 23, got as close as 97-91 on a pair of free throws by Julius Randle that capped a 15-5 run with 3:14 to play. Rudy Gay clinched it for the Kings by scoring seven of his 20 points in the final 2:57.
This was the first time the Kings went an entire season without losing to the Lakers during the franchise's 68-year history, which dates back to the 1948-49 Rochester Royals. Sacramento has won eight of the last nine meetings, after losing 16 of the previous 21.
