SACRAMENTO, California — Keegan Murray scored a huge 47 points, leading the Sacramento Kings to a 125-104 win over the Utah Jazz.

Murray scored 26 points in the third quarter, and after making 12 of his first 13 attempts, he had Klay Thompson’s NBA record of 14 3-pointers in his sights. He became the seventh player to make 12 or more 3s in a game.

Thompson has done it three times and Stephen Curry twice.

Domantas Sabonis added 20 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists, his seventh straight double-double and 20th this season.

The Kings shot 22 of 45 from the 3-point line, the third time this season Sacramento made at least 20.

Colin Sexton scored 28 points and Lauri Markkanen had 18 for the Jazz.

Sacramento took control in the third quarter, outscoring the Jazz 44-26. Murray broke the franchise record of 25 points in a quarter, set by Mitch Richmond in 1995.

The Kings took their biggest lead of the game after Murray hit his 12th 3-pointer at the buzzer to end the third quarter with a 106-76 lead.

Murray scored 19 points in the first half. Sacramento led 62-50 at halftime.

Sacramento starting guard De’Aaron Fox was out with right shoulder irritation. Utah guard Jordan Clarkson and John Collins missed the game due to right hamstring strain and illness, respectively.
