NEW ORLEANS - Rudy Gay tied a career high with 41 points, and Sacramento cruised to a 114-97 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night.

Isaiah Thomas had 20 points and 11 assists, and DeMarcus Cousins had 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Kings, who've won five of eight.

Gay hit 16 of 25 shots, including 5 of 8 from 3-point range.

Tyreke Evans scored 17 for New Orleans, which trimmed a 23-point first-half deficit to six shortly before halftime, only to fall behind by 23 again in the third quarter and remain behind by double digits the rest of the way.

Anthony Davis added 16 points and New Orleans rookie center Jeff Withey had a career-high 14 points, but that was not nearly enough to prevent the Pelicans from losing for the ninth time in 10 games.
