SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Isaiah Thomas scored 25 points and Marcus Thornton had 24 for the Sacramento Kings in a 120-109 victory over the Utah Jazz on Saturday night.
It was a boisterous crowd of 16,193 that was chanting ``Sacramento!'' just before tipoff in support of the Kings, who could be sold and move to Seattle next season.
Sacramento led throughout most of the game and played an aggressive, up-tempo style that had the crowd loudly cheering throughout and displaying signs of support. There were more children at the game than normal, thanks to a grassroots campaign that raised more than $9,000 for kids to attend.
Alec Burks had a career-high 24 points and Al Jefferson scored 16 for the Jazz, who dropped their second straight game. Enes Kantor had 15 points and DeMare Carroll had 14.
