DALLAS (AP) - Rajon Rondo had 18 points and 12 assists in his first game in Dallas since an ugly split with the Mavericks last season, and the Sacramento Kings ended a 22-game regular-season losing streak on his old home floor with a 104-101 victory Thursday night.
Booed almost every time he touched the ball, Rondo was the steady hand the Kings needed late. He missed a January loss to Dallas when Sacramento blew a lead in double overtime to keep alive the Mavericks' longest winning streak against one opponent.
DeMarcus Cousins had 22 points and 13 rebounds as Sacramento snapped a four-game losing streak with just its fifth win in the past 17 games.
Chandler Parsons scored 28 to lead the Mavericks, who had a three-game winning streak snapped in the finale of a six-game homestand, their longest of the season.
