De’Aaron Fox helps Kings rally past Grizzlies

De’Aaron Fox scored a game-high 23 points, and Kevin Huerter gave Sacramento the lead for good late in the fourth quarter as the visiting Kings beat the short-handed Memphis Grizzlies 103-94 on Monday night.

Domantas Sabonis finished with a game-high 26 rebounds to go with 20 points for the Kings, who outshot the Grizzlies 51.2 percent to 37.5 percent from the floor and outrebounded them 51-37.

Huerter chipped in with 17 points, Harrison Barnes added 12 and Trey Lyles scored 10 in helping the Kings win the first three games of a seven-game trip.

Jaren Jackson Jr. paced the Grizzlies with 22 points, while David Roddy grabbed a team-high 10 rebounds and scored nine points.

In a game the Grizzlies led by as many as 15 points, Jackson put the hosts up 92-88 with a floater with 4:43 remaining.

But Memphis made only one of its last seven shots, allowing the Kings to finish on a 15-2 run en route to a fourth straight win.

Fox ignited the game-ending run with a short jumper. Huerter then nailed his third 3-pointer of the game to give the Kings a lead they never relinquished.

Fox added two more field goals and then Lyles knocked down a back-breaking 3-pointer to give the Kings a 100-94 lead with 2:01 left.

Sabonis added a dunk and Fox split two free throws to close out Memphis’ second straight defeat after the Grizzlies had won three in a row.

Santi Aldama added 16 points, Scottie Pippen Jr. and GG Jackson scored 12 apiece, and Xavier Tillman and Matthew Hurt chipped in with 10 each for Memphis, which played again without Ja Morant (shoulder), Marcus Smart (finger) and Desmond Bane (ankle).

The Grizzlies outscored the Kings 39-33 from beyond the arc.
