Player of the game: Darren Collison led the Kings’ fourth-quarter comeback as Sacramento defeated the Denver Nuggets 115-106 on Saturday night at Pepsi Center. Collison finished with 14 points and eight assists as seven Kings scored in double figures, led by Rudy Gay with 25.

Turning point: The Kings found their way in the fourth quarter, using a 16-2 run to lead 105-97 with 6:07 to play. They stayed in front the rest of the game, outscoring the Nuggets 31-18 in the fourth.

X-factor: Seth Curry came off the bench, because George Karl wanted a scorer with the second unit, and responded with 17 points and matched his career-high with five assists.

Records: Kings 31-46, Nuggets 32-46

Key injuries: The Kings were without Marco Belinelli (sore right foot), Omri Casspi (right hamstring strain), DeMarcus Cousins (rest) and Rajon Rondo (rest).

The Sacramento Kings finally put their differences aside and played a "we" game to send the Denver Nuggets to defeat 115-106 on Saturday, April 2, 2016 at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colo.
