Los Angeles Lakers vs. Sacramento Kings 3/30/13: Video Highlights and Recap

Ryan DavenportContributor IMarch 31, 2013

The L.A. Lakers needed a road win over the Sacramento Kings on Saturday night in order to keep pace with the Utah Jazz in the race for the final postseason berth in the Western Conference. 

And they got exactly what they needed. 

Dwight Howard lead the way with a monster game, throwing down 24 points and 15 rebounds for the Lakers, and Kobe Bryant did his part as well, dishing out 14 dimes to go along with 19 points en route to a 103-98 victory over the struggling Kings.

Sacramento, which fell to 27-47, got a big game out of DeMarcus Cousins, who put up 19 points and 11 boards for a double-double. The Kings failed to hang on to their lead at halftime, though, and the Lakers took over in the third quarter. 

The Lakers move to 38-36 with the win, and will get set to take on Dallas at home on Tuesday, while the Kings will welcome the Rockets to Sacramento on Wednesday.
