SALT LAKE CITY — Rookie Tyreke Evans scored a season-high 32 points and the Sacramento Kings held off the Utah Jazz for a 104-99 victory Saturday night in their first game without high-scoring guard Kevin Martin.

Evans, the fourth overall pick in the June draft, became the focus of the Kings' offense in place of Martin, who averaged 30.6 points in the first five games. Martin will have surgery Monday to repair a fracture in his left wrist.

Deron Williams had 29 points and 15 assists for the Jazz, and Carlos Boozer had 16 points and 17 rebounds.
