SACRAMENTO (CBS) — Marcus Thornton scored 27 points and the Sacramento Kings beat the Los Angeles Lakers on their home floor for the first time in six meetings on Monday night, 100-91.

Thornton, who scored 33 points in the Kings’ season finale last season against the Lakers, carried Sacramento down the stretch, including hitting a long 3-pointer to put the Kings ahead 92-87 with 4:00 to play.

The Lakers, who fell to 0-2, simply couldn’t buy a basket from long-range, Troy Murphy made the only 3-pointer as the team shot a dismal 1-16 from behind the line, while Sacramento shot 9-18.

“Offensively we’re going to be fine. In terms of “D” it’s disappointing. It seems like we took a step backwards tonight.” Lakers head coach Mike Brown said.

Kobe Bryant led the Lakers with 29 points, while Metta World Peace supplied some unexpected offense with 19 points.

“We beat ourselves more than the other teams beat us. We just need to fix the little things and we’ll be fine.” Lakers forward Devin Ebanks said.

The Lakers will play for the third consecutive night on Tuesday against the Utah Jazz at the Staples Center.
