Rookie forward Marvin Bagley III scored a career-high 24 points and added 12 rebounds as Sacramento Kings defeated the San Antonio Spurs 127-112 on Tuesday (PHT). The Kings finished with their seven straight home wins of the season, including third consecutive games in two weeks.

Bagley, who made his NBA debut with Kings on October 17, 2018, had four assists, three blocks and one steal in his 31-minute appearance at the Golden 1 Center. The 19-year-old budding star pushed the Kings over the top to earn the win against the visitors.

De'Aaron Fox added 20 points, Yogi Ferrell netted 19 and Buddy Hield scored 18 to guide their team to a longest home winning streak since 14-game wins in 2005-06. 

The Kings made 10 3-pointers in the first half to extend the franchise record for most games in a season with double-digit 3s.

With this victory, the Kings have approved to 28-25 and trail the Los Angeles Clippers in the Western Conference. They are just 0.5 games back from the No. 8 seed.

DeMar DeRozan had 24 points and LaMarcus Aldridge added 22 for the Spurs, who lost for the first time after five consecutive wins. As many as six players scored double figures for the Kings in a single game. They are now in the sixth place with 32-23 in the same conference.

Kings host star studded Houston Rockets while Spurs visit Oakland to face Golden State Warriors on Wednesday.
