After Fox tied the game at 107 and put the Kings ahead at 108-107, Ellis added a basket from the line with two seconds remaining and Sacramento ended Orlando’s five-game win streak.

Isaac drew an ovation when he was taken out after an eight-minute stretch of the first half in which he produced 17 points, four rebounds and a block of Sabonis.

Sabonis scored five points during a 13-0 run in the third quarter that moved the Kings ahead 74-65, the largest lead of the game for either team.
