DeMarcus Cousins overcame a sore shoulder to score 19 points and grab 12 rebounds, leading the Sacramento Kings past the Phoenix Suns 113-106 on Wednesday night for their first road win of the season.

The Kings took control in the third quarter, turning a five-point halftime lead into a 14-point advantage. They finished off a back-to-back sweep after beating Phoenix at home on Tuesday night.

The Suns lost their fourth straight game.

Cousins dislocated his left shoulder in Tuesday night's game. Kings coach Michael Malone said the big center got injured when he was fouled, but he continued to play that night and started Wednesday's game, playing 27 minutes.
