ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 27 (UPI) -- John Salmons delivered 21 points and was one of seven Sacramento players in double figures Wednesday, lifting the Kings to a 125-101 blasting of Orlando.

The Kings had lost nine consecutive road games, but piled up 67 points in the first half to take a 23-point lead.

Sacramento's offensive show came 24 hours after they had taken Miami to a second overtime before suffering its sixth straight loss overall.

Marcus Thornton produced 20 points for the Kings, Tyreke Evans had 17 and DeMarcus Cousins, Patrick Patterson and Jimmer Fredette all had 13.

Orlando, which returned home after a 14-point win in Philadelphia on Tuesday, suffered its sixth loss in seven games. Tobias Harris scored 23 points for the Magic.
