SACRAMENTO, Calif. — John Salmons had 22 points and Jason Thompson and Marcus Thornton each scored 20 to help the Sacramento Kings beat New Orleans 121-110 Wednesday night.

The win halted a season-high five-game home losing streak for the Kings, who are 20-20 at Sleep Train Arena. The Kings haven't had a .500 or better home record since the 2007-08 season, when they went 26-15.

Sacramento led by 17 at halftime and topped the 100-point mark early in the fourth quarter, when the Kings stretched the lead to 28.

Salmons had five points in 75 minutes over the previous three games, when he shot a combined 1 of 14. The veteran forward was 7 for 10 and made two three-pointers for the Kings, who shot 55 percent.

Former Washington Huskies guard Isaiah Thomas had 15 points for the Kings.

Eric Gordon scored 23, Robin Lopez had 20 and Brian Robers added a career-high 20 for the Hornets.

Hornets rookie Anthony Davis, the first pick in the 2012 draft, limped off the court midway through the fourth quarter after crashing to the floor while drawing an offensive foul against Thornton.
