NEW ORLEANS (AP) - DeMarcus Cousins had 35 points and 14 rebounds, and the Sacramento Kings snapped a three-game skid with a 102-97 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans Monday night.

Ray McCallum, starting because of Isaiah Thomas' right thigh injury, scored 22 points. Rudy Gay also scored 22, including a momentum-swinging three-pointer after the Pelicans had pulled within a point in the fourth quarter.

Reggie Evans grabbed 12 rebounds before his ejection for an elbow to Anthony Davis' face on a collision that occurred as Evans went up for a close-range shot.

Davis, returning from left ankle injury that forced him to miss a start on Saturday, had 22 points. Anthony Morrow scored 23 points for the Pelicans, who have dropped two straight on the heels of their season-high, five-game winning streak.
