SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Tyreke Evans made four free throws in the final minute to finish with 26 points, and Sacramento overcame a 21-point halftime deficit to stun the Milwaukee Bucks 103-100 on Thursday night hours after the Kings fired coach Paul Westphal.
Evans hit the go-ahead free throws with 18.1 seconds remaining and followed with two more to make former assistant and Warriors coach Keith Smart a winner in his Kings head coaching debut. Sacramento ousted Westphal following a slow start and an escalating feud with young center DeMarcus Cousins.
Cousins had 19 points and 15 rebounds.
Brandon Jennings scored 31 points, and Drew Gooden had 18 points and nine rebounds for the Bucks in place of center Andrew Bogut, who missed his second straight game for undisclosed personal reasons.
