Kings defeat Clippers 123-107, handing them their first straight losses since December

LOS ANGELES (AP) — De’Aaron Fox scored 33 points, Domantas Saboni had his 20th triple double — the highest tally in the NBA — and the Sacramento Kings defeated the Clippers 123-107 on Sunday, making Los Ángeles will have two defeats for the first time since December.

Norman Powell led the Clippers with 21 points in his first start this season in place of Paul George, who was affected by left knee soreness. Kawhi Leonard added 20 points, as did James Harden, who made all 10 of his free throws in addition to adding eight assists. Los Angeles had not lost two in a row since December 21 and 23.

The Clippers, who are third in the league, returned from the All-Star break with a road trip. They returned home for the first time, where they were 20-6, to lose to a team four spots further back in the West standings.

Harrison Barnes added 22 for the Kings, who won their third game in a row. Sabonis finished with 17 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists.

The Clippers cut their lead to five early in the fourth quarter before the Kings widened the gap to 10. After cutting it to 101-96 on a three-point play by Terance Mann, the Clippers soon found themselves down 10 again.

Barnes and Davion Mitchell hit back-to-back 3-pointers and Barnes scored again, extending the lead to 116-100.
