    Sabonis nearly has triple-double, Kings top skidding Rockets

    SACRAMENTO (AP) – Domantas Sabonis had 25 points, 14 rebounds and nine assists as the Sacramento Kings beat the skidding Houston Rockets 135-115 yesterday.

    “It starts with our two All-Stars,” Kings coach Mike Brown said about Sabonis and De’Aaron Fox.

    Fox added 24 points and nine assists for Sacramento (22-18). Trey Lyles scored 15 of his 20 points off the bench in the fourth quarter. Keegan Murray and Harrison Barnes each finished with 16.

    “We feel like we’re a good team, but we feel like we can be a whole lot better than we are,” Fox said. “It’s good. I’m happy that we aren’t lower, but I feel like we can be better. We have a long way to go.”

    Alperen Sengün became the youngest centre in NBA history with a triple-double. The 20-year-old finished with 10 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for Houston (10-31).

    “It was a great moment for me,” Sengün said. “Appreciate my whole team.” Jalen Green had 26 points for the Rockets, who have lost eight consecutive games and 13 of their last 14.
