Bucks spoil Cousins' return, beat Kings 108-107

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Brandon Knight scored 20 points and the Milwaukee Bucks spoiled DeMarcus Cousins' return to the struggling Sacramento Kings with a 108-107 victory Thursday night.

With their inside game lacking due to missing players, the Bucks shot well from the perimeter for much of the night in winning their third in four games. They went 10 of 14 from 3-point range in the first half and made 13 overall from beyond the arc.

O.J. Mayo and Jared Dudley added 19 points apiece for Milwaukee. Jerryd Bayless scored 17 and Giannis Antetokounmpo had 11 for the undersized Bucks, outscored 48-26 in the paint.

Playing for the first time in more than three weeks, Cousins looked fatigued at times but still had 27 points, 11 rebounds and five assists in nearly 33 minutes for the Kings.
