SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Marcus Thornton scored 23 points, Tyreke Evans had 18 and the Sacramento Kings snapped a five-game losing streak by beating the lethargic Los Angeles Lakers 113-97 on Wednesday night.

Jason Thompson added 13 points and 10 rebounds to help the Kings take a 10-point lead early in the fourth quarter and cement the latest Lakers setback. Los Angeles had won three straight and seemed to be turning things around under new coach Mike D'Antoni.

Instead, the Lakers looked lost and listless against the Western Conference's worst team, showing all the same problems that got Mike Brown fired.

Kobe Bryant scored 38 points on 11 of 20 shooting and Jodie Meeks had 15 points off the bench as D'Antoni lost for the first time on the Lakers bench.
