CHARLOTTE, N.C. — DeMarcus Cousins had 29 points and 10 rebounds, and the Sacramento Kings handed the Charlotte Bobcats their 20th straight loss with a 114-88 victory Sunday night.

The Kings had lost nine of their previous 10 games, but this one was never in doubt as they scored 78 points in the paint and led by as many as 35 in the fourth quarter.

Tyreke Evans was dominant while slicing his way through a non-existent Bobcats defense, hitting 10 of 11 shots from the field and finishing with 22 points.

Kemba Walker had 13 points and 11 assists for the Bobcats, who are nearing the NBA record for futility. If the Bobcats (7-56) lose their final three games, they'll finish with the worst winning percentage in league history.
