The Kings led 61-58 at the break. Hield had 17 points in the first half and D’Aaron Fox added 14 as the Mavericks struggled to stop Sacramento’s guards.
Bogdan Bogdanovic added 15 points for the Kings, and Willie Cauley-Stein finished with 12 points, eight rebounds and three assists.
It was Dallas’ first home loss since November 2 against the New York Knicks.
