Ray McCallum ignited the Sacramento Kings to a 77-68 victory over the Houston Rockets to claim the NBA Summer League Championship.

McCallum, the 36th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, finished with a game-high 29 points and was named the title game's MVP.

He shot 9-for-15 from the field with three 3-pointers and went 8-for-9 from the free throw line. 

The Kings also had double-digit outings from Ra'shad James (12 points) and this year's first round draft pick, Nik Stauskas (10). Eric Moreland led Sacramento with 10 rebounds.

The win was the sixth straight for the Kings, who conclude their Summer League outing with only one defeat -- an 85-69 loss to San Antonio in their opening game.
