CLEVELAND (AP) - De'Aaron Fox had 30 points and 12 assists, and the Sacramento Kings beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-110 on Friday night. Buddy Hield added 25 points for the Kings, who led by as many as 25 after the game was tied at 66 at halftime. Marvin Bagley III scored 17 points on 8-for-9 shooting

The Sacramento Kings have found a soft spot in their brutal first half schedule. The Kings' starting backcourt put on a show in the team's 129-110 victory over the Cavs. The duo of De'Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield combined for 55 points on 21-of-33 shooting.

After running over the Phoenix Suns for their second straight victory, the Sacramento Kings venture to Cleveland where the 5-19 Cavs will play host Friday evening. If the Kings want to be considered a playoff contender, they have to beat struggling teams, whether it's on the road or at the friendly confines of Golden 1 Center. Willie Cauley-Stein set the defensive tone against Phoenix and Buddy Hield caught fire to help propel the Kings to a 35-point second quarter lead on Tuesday.
