Marcus Thornton scored a game-high 24 points in his first game as a reserve this season to lead the Kings to a 107-86 win over the Brooklyn Nets Wednesday night at Sleep Train Arena.

The win ended a five-game losing streak for the Kings (2-5).

Thornton was replaced in the starting lineup by Ben McLemore and Jason Thompson replaced Patrick Patterson as part of coach Michael Malone's lineup changes. And for a night they paid off.

Greivis Vasquez had 17 points and 12 assists while Isaiah Thomas added 19 points and six assists off the bench.

Brook Lopez led Brooklyn (2-5) with 16 points and nine rebounds.
