PHOENIX, March 29 (UPI) -- A season-best 34 points from DeMarcus Cousins Thursday carried Sacramento to its second straight win, 117-103 over Phoenix.

The struggling Suns, owners of the worst record in the Western Conference, lost their fifth in a row.

Cousins had been over 30 points just once this season, having produced 31 against Toronto on Jan. 4. He hit 12-of-16 from the field against the Suns and made all six of his free throw attempts while adding 14 rebounds.

Sacramento built a 14-point halftime lead and easily held on while shooting 53 percent from the field.

Isaiah Thomas chipped in 23 points and eight assists for the Kings, who went 22-of-24 from the line.

Luis Scola led Phoenix with 25 points.
