San Antonio:

Tyreke Evans scored 23 points and hit the go-ahead jumper with 47.2 seconds left, giving the Sacramento Kings an unlikely road victory over the San Antonio Spurs, 88-86 on Friday night.

Marcus Thornton and DeMarcus Cousins added 17 points apiece for the Kings, who won on the road for just the second time and did so in the NBA's toughest place to play so far this season. The Spurs had been 9-0 at home.

Tony Parker led the Spurs with 24 points. San Antonio missed its last five shots, including Danny Green air-balling a short runner as time expired.

Sacramento had been abysmal away from home, getting blown out by an average of 23 points in all seven of its road losses.
