HOUSTON — Kyle Lowry's 25 points led five double-digit scorers and the Houston Rockets beat the Sacramento Kings 103-89 on Friday night.

The Kings led at halftime, but Houston used a strong third quarter to take the lead and Sacramento never really threatened after that.

Former King Samuel Dalembert added 21 points and 16 rebounds, and Luis Scola also had 21 points and grabbed 11 boards.

Tyreke Evans scored 27 points for Sacramento, which has lost five of seven. Evans has scored at least 25 points in four of the last five games.

DeMarcus Cousins' streak of four straight double-doubles was snapped with a tough night. He finished with four points and four rebounds, going 1 of 7 after missing all of his six field goal attempts in the first half.
