Isaiah Thomas made two free throws with 30.4 seconds to play to cap a comeback and give the Kings a 107-104 win over the Phoenix Suns Tuesday at Sleep Train Arena.

The Kings trailed 104-97 with 3:34 to play and closed the game on a 10-0 run. Thomas' free throws made the score 106-104.

The Kings withstood a late three by Marcus Morris that would have given the Suns a lead with 0.8 seconds to play.

The Kings jumped out to an 11-point lead in the first quarter that they quickly surrendered in the second quarter, falling behind by as many as 14 point in the third quarter.

DeMarcus Cousins led the Kings (3-7) with 27 points and 12 rebounds. Ben McLemore and Thomas each had 19 points. That was a season high for McLemore.

Gerald Green, starting for injured guard Eric Bledsoe, led the Suns (5-5) with 23 points.

The two teams play Wednesday night in Phoenix.
