SACRAMENTO, April 6 (UPI) -- Randy Foye's two free throws with 16 seconds left began a game-closing 7-0 run Thursday that boosted the Los Angeles Clippers to a 93-85 win over Sacramento.

The Clippers won for the seventh time in eight games, bouncing back from a five-point loss to the Los Angeles Lakers 24 hours earlier.

Tyreke Evans hit two foul shots that brought the Kings within a point with 18 seconds to go, but the Kings could not manage another point.

Foye scored 20 points to lead the Clippers, who improved their lead to two games over Memphis and Dallas in the race for home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

Caron Butler and Blake Griffin both had 14 points for Los Angeles.

Sacramento, which was looking for its 20th win of the season, was led by Isaiah Thomas with 17 points and Jason Thompson with 15.
