Coming off an impressive road win at Houston, the Kings returned home and had one of their most disappointing showings of the season.

The Philadelphia 76ers had their way with the Kings most of the night in a 113-104 loss Thursday at Sleep Train Arena.

The Kings gave up 92 points through three quarters before showing some defensive intensity in the fourth quarter. But Sacramento (10-21) could not overcome shooting 42.2 percent and committing XX turnovers.

DeMarcus Cousins had 33 points and 14 rebounds for the Kings, but was limited in teh second half because of foul trouble. Cousins had 22 points in the first half.

Isaiah Thomas has 23 points and seven assists. Rudy Gay had 18 points and Jimmer Fredette had 15 points all in the fourth quarter.

Thaddeus Young led the Sixers (11-21) with 28 points and a career-high six steals. Evan Turner had 24 points and Tony Wroten had 21 points off the bench.
