SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- John Salmons had 22 points, and Jason Thompson and Marcus Thornton each added 20 to help the Sacramento Kings snap a four-game losing streak with a 121-110 victory over the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday night.

The Kings led by 17 at the half and surpassed the 100-point mark early in the fourth quarter when they stretched the lead to 28 points against the struggling Hornets.

The victory halted a season-high five-game home losing streak for the Kings, who have a 20-20 record at Sleep Train Arena. The Kings haven't had a .500 or better home record since the 2007-08 season when they went 26-15.

Isaiah Thomas had 15 points and DeMarcus Cousins 11 for the Kings.

Eric Gordon scored 23 points for the Hornets.
