Kings beat Lakers for first preseason win

LAS VEGAS - DeMarcus Cousins led the Kings with 16 points and 12 rebounds as Sacramento (1-1) notched its first preseason win, 104-86, over the Los Angeles Lakers Thursday night at MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Isaiah Thomas had 10 points and nine assists.

Cousins shot 2-for-10 in the preseason opener Monday at Golden State but was much more efficient against the Lakers (2-2).

Cousins made 8-of-13 shots and also had three assists.

Nick Young led the Lakers with 17 points. Steve Nash did not play the second half for the Laekrs because of a sore ankle.

*Jimmer Fredette started and had seven points, three assists and three steals. Travis Outlaw finished with a team-high 18 points as the starting small forward as coach Michael Malone continues to experiment with lineups.

*After committing 26 turnovers Monday, the Kings had 15 turnovers against the Lakers.

*Greivis Vasquez (ankle), Carl Landry (quad) and Luc Mbah a Moute (ankle) did not play for the Kings. Marcus Thornton did not play so Malone could give more time to Fredette and Ben McLemore.
