NEW ORLEANS- The New Orleans Hornets lost for the sixth straight time as DeMarcus Cousins' 28 points and 19 rebounds paced the Sacramento Kings to just their ninth win of the season.

The Kings erased an 18-point deficit en route to a 100-92 victory over the slumping New Orleans Hornets on Monday night.

Tyreke Evans scored 11 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter, when Sacramento took its first lead on Marcus Thornton's free throw with 6:24 left.

Isaiah Thomas scored 17, including a 31-foot 3 with 2:15 to go that gave the Kings a 94-88 lead. Thornton added 12 points. Greivis Vasquez scored 20 points and Marco Belinelli 18 points for New Orleans, which has lost six straight.

Emeka Okafor scored a season-high 19 points and Chris Kaman added 10 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks in his return from a weeklong absence while the Hornets tried to trade him.
