Gordon Hayward scored 21 points, C.J. made three-point attempt by 93, on Saturday night.
Fredette missed a deep shot from the right side that could have given the Kings a one-point lead in front of an away crowd, some of whom may have cheered for the NBA rookie when he starred at nearby BYU.
The Kings have lost four in a row and eight of their last nine games in Salt Lake City. Fredette scored 14, but Tyreke Evans had 31 to lead Sacramento, which has now dropped four in a row overall and seven of its last nine.
