Thompson lifts Kings to fourth straight win

"I let it fly and it went in," Evans said.

In the third quarter, the Rockets quickly overcame an 11-point deficit and pulled ahead briefly when Scola scored inside midway through the period. But the Kings used Nocioni's 3-point play to retake the lead and went into the fourth with an 82-77 advantage.

In a fast-paced opening half, Udrih made four 3-pointers and scored 16 points and Thompson had 14 points for the Kings, who led 63-52 despite struggling with turnovers. Ariza scored 18 points for Houston.

Notes

Ariza had all five of his steals in the first half to tie his career high. ... It was the fifth straight double-double for Thompson. ... The Kings had 18 turnovers, but only one in the fourth quarter.
