DeMarcus Cousins scored 24 points, Aaron Brooks added 23 points and the Sacramento Kings snapped a five-game losing streak by outlasting the Golden State Warriors 131-127 on Wednesday night.

After blowing a 15-point lead, Brooks made a pair of 3-pointers in the final minutes to help Sacramento pull away. Both teams shot 50 percent, while the Kings had a season high in points and scored more than any team had against the Warriors this season.

Stephen Curry scored 23 of his 32 points in the second half before fouling out, and David Lee had 29 points and eight rebounds in Golden State's worst defensive outing of the season. Only Oklahoma City had shot at least 50 percent against the Warriors.
