The Kings used their defense for the second time in three games to come away with a win.
Sacramento held the Cleveland Cavaliers to 42.3 percent shooting and scored 22 points off 14 Cleveland turnovers for a 103-84 win Sunday at Sleep Train Arena.
The Kings committed a season-low five turnovers in the win, including only one in the first half, a season best.
DeMarcus Cousins led the Kings with 26 points, 13 rebounds and a season-high four steals. Rudy Gay had 23 points.
The Cavaliers were without LeBron James and Shawn Marion and fell to 2-9 since losing center Anderson Varejao for the season to a torn Achilles tendon.
Kevin Love had 25 points and 10 rebounds. Kyrie Riving had 21 points and seven assists. Center Timofey Mozgov, acquired last week in a trade with Denver, had 14 points and 12 rebounds.
