LOS ANGELES (AP) - Jordan Farmar scored a career-high 30 points off the bench, making eight of 10 shots from 3-point range, and the Los Angeles Lakers capitalized on the absence of suspended Sacramento star DeMarcus Cousins to beat the Kings 126-122 Friday night.
Jodie Meeks made all eight of his shots and finished with 22 points, including three of the Lakers' franchise-record 19 3-pointers on 27 attempts. Pau Gasol also scored 22, and newly acquired reserve MarShon Brooks had 23.
The Lakers shot 60 percent in a matchup of teams with the two worst records in the Western Conference. They have won the first three meetings against the Kings this season, with one remaining on April 2 at Sacramento.
Los Angeles is a game behind the Kings in the conference standings and 1½ behind Utah.
