Collin Sexton scored 26 points, including a layup with 1.6 seconds remaining after Holmes was called for goaltending.
That made it 98-97. Fox then heaved the ball from one baseline to Barnes, who caught the ball and took a few steps before launching a 26-footer as the buzzer sounded. As soon as the ball went through the net, Kings players stormed the court and mobbed Barnes.
The play was reviewed and upheld.
Darius Garland had 18 points for Cleveland, which led for most of the fourth quarter.
Two days after being acquired in a series of trades, Kings newcomers Delon Wright, Terence Davis II and Moe Harkless were on the floor together as part of Sacramento’s second unit late in the first quarter.
Wright scored the first points for the trio, spinning past Cleveland’s Dean Wade for a layup and foul. He finished with four points, Davis had six and Harkless added two assists and one rebound.
