SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Rudy Gay walked off the court to a standing ovation in the final minutes, receiving high-fives from coaches and teammates on the bench -- and a hug from DeMarcus Cousins. Nobody might be more thankful than Sacramentos centre for the added help. Gay scored 26 points in his first home game since coming over in a trade from Toronto, leading the Kings past the Houston Rockets 106-91 on Sunday night. "It makes the game so much easier," Cousins said. "Its not such a heavy load on me and Isaiah (Thomas) every night, just having another go-to guy." With Gay leading the way, Sacramento outshot Houston 48.1 to 41.3 per cent and finally showed some signs of defence. Cousins collected 21 points and 10 rebounds, and Thomas had 19 points and eight assists to help Sacramento hold on to the lead for most of the final 35 minutes. Gay added five rebounds and four assists. He finished 10 for 20 from the field in a dazzling home debut for the Kings, who had lost eight of their past 10 games. "The basketball is going to be in my hands a lot," Gay said, "so Im just trying to keep everybody comfortable and keep everybody happy." James Harden sprained his left ankle early in the third quarter and finished with 25 points, and Dwight Howard had 13 points and 10 rebounds while battling foul trouble in a disappointing end to Houstons quick three-game road trip. The Rockets lost at Portland on Thursday and won at Golden State on Friday. Rockets assistant Kelvin Sampson filled in for Kevin McHale all three games following the death of McHales mother. Guard Jeremy Lin sat out with back spasms and forward Terrence Jones had two points and five assists while playing just 15 minutes because of flu-like symptoms. Its unclear whether Harden or Lin will be able to play Wednesday against Chicago in Houston. "Its very, very painful," Harden said of his ankle. "I am trying to get through this, stay positive and focus on getting back." Sacramentos newest attraction seized the opportunity. Gay, who came over in a seven-player trade from Toronto last week, had 24 points in the loss at Phoenix on Friday. He started quickly in his first game at home for Sacramento, scoring 14 points in the first quarter, including a series of scintillating drives and dunks that brought most of the announced crowd of 15,606 roaring to their feet. "It makes my job easier on offence. Thats for sure," Kings coach Michael Malone said. "Hes so skilled. Hes so talented. He makes it look so easy out there. He can score in so many ways." As Houstons mistakes piled up, Sacramento surged ahead. The Kings took advantage of 11 turnovers by the Rockets in the first half to go ahead 48-38 late in the second quarter. Houston had six turnovers in the second half. Sacramento didnt exactly play a clean game, either. The Kings finished with 16 turnovers. "We still had opportunities to win," Howard said. "But we didnt capitalize on them." Harden gave the Rockets a bigger scare when he twisted his ankle stepping on Ben McLemores foot while driving through traffic early in the third quarter. Harden lay on the hardwood for a couple minutes, but stayed in the game to make both free throws -- lifting his left foot in the air while shooting -- before limping to the locker room. Harden returned later in the quarter, and appeared slightly hampered. The Rockets also struggled to regroup, especially with Howard on the bench in foul trouble. Sampson admitted he "probably should not have put" Harden back in the game. But he was more frustrated with Houstons effort from the start. "I didnt think we were ready to play," Sampson said. "I didnt think it was a good effort. We are letting too many of these type of games slip away." NOTES: Kings G Marcus Thornton did not play in the first half. He had two points in nearly 7 minutes in the second half. ... Houston had won five of its previous six games at Sacramento. ... Rockets big man Omer Asik, who has been the subject of trade rumours, missed his sixth straight game with what the team has called a bruised right thigh. دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.

. On Thursday, a judge said Varlamov could be released if he posted $5,000 bond and be allowed to travel with the team but he was ordered to stay away from his girlfriend, among other restrictions.BATA, Equatorial Guinea - Host Equatorial Guinea benefited from a hotly disputed penalty in the last minute of normal time to go on and beat a furious Tunisian team 2-1 in extra time of a chaotic African Cup quarterfinal on Saturday.Mauritian referee Rajindraparsad Seechurn ruled that Ivan Bolado was fouled in the 90th minute with Equatorial Guinea trailing 1-0, and on the way out of its home tournament. It looked like a clear dive from Bolado with no contact made. It sparked fury from the Tunisians.Javier Balboa scored from the spot-kick deep into stoppage time, but only after players and coaching staff from both teams confronted each other in ugly scenes on the sidelines, with plastic bottles also thrown from the crowd at both dugouts. Riot police moved in to restore order during the game and then had to whisk Seechurn away at the end as he was chased by angry Tunisian players, who aimed punches and kicks at him as he sprinted toward the tunnel with his police escort.While Balboas penalty was highly contentious, he also curled in a brilliant free kick in the 12th minute of extra time to send Equatorial Guinea to the African Cup semifinals for the first time — and the 35,000-strong home crowd into crazed celebrations.The penalty was the turning point, though, and Seechurns decision caused the problems. The two camps clashed on more than one occasion in front of the dugouts after it was awarded, with substitute players and coaching staff pushing and grappling with each other and shouting insults. Both head coaches were involved.Its difficult to accept, Tunisia coach Georges Leekens said of the penalty, his voice rising in anger. In 30 years (in football), I have a lot of experiences ...dddddddddddd. but this I cant accept.Leekens called the decision by the referee that helped the home team out forced.Its a shame. Its a shame ... its an injustice, he said.Tunisian players also completely lost their control after the penalty by kicking, tripping and pushing Equatorial Guinea players, both in tackles and in off-the-ball incidents behind the referees back.They had been goaded when one of the Equatorial Guinea players did a little dance in the middle of the field after the penalty went in, and also by two fans who ran onto the field unchallenged to celebrate the equalizer.At the final whistle, there was more trouble. The Tunisians surrounded and pushed and shoved Seechurn, then chased him across the field and toward the tunnel as riot police and yellow-jacketed security tried desperately to protect the official.Tunisia silenced the stadium in the 70th minute when Ahmed Akaichi flicked in at the near post after a perfect first-time cross by Hamza Mathlouthi for a 1-0 lead.Mathlouthi was the Tunisian to give away the penalty at the death, though, when Seechurn decided he tripped Bolado.It was a normal penalty, Equatorial Guinea coach Esteban Becker said. In the last minute as in any other minute.Becker added: At this moment, Im the happiest man in the world.It took minutes to restore calm after the penalty was awarded, but Balboa kept his head to sweep the ball into the bottom left corner. He then curled his free kick brilliantly into the top right corner in extra time.I wish good luck for (Equatorial) Guinea but we dont deserve to go out, Leekens said. Not in this way.Equatorial Guinea will play the winner of Sundays quarterfinal between Ghana and Guinea. ' ' '
