Losing Cousins, their leading scorer and rebounder thanks to his NBA-high 11th and 12th technical of the season, didn’t have the negative effect on the Kings’ one might expect. Sacramento outscored the Jazz 23-18 in the third quarter and they took a 66-62 lead into the fourth quarter.

Forward Jason Thompson led the Kings with 23 points and 10 rebounds, while guard Tyreke Evans scored 20 points.

“When DeMarcus went out,” Foye said, “that was huge for us because he was active. ... But it just made my job a lot harder with Tyreke Evans because every play he was coming right at me.”

However, Evans missed a driving layup attempt with 1:28 left in overtime that would have cut the Jazz’s lead to 90-89. The Jazz outscored the Kings 8-4 the rest of the way.

The Jazz had the last possession of regulation and could have won the game outright, but Foye’s was cut off on a drive into the paint and with 3 seconds left had no choice but to kick outside to Jefferson, who has made two 3-pointers in his career.

This one was well short.

“I did it on purpose,” Jefferson joked. “I just wanted to go to overtime.
