Early in the game, it would be the home team off to a good start. The Wizards broke out on a 7-1 run to start the game before the Kings regrouped on the bench.
Sacramento took a two-point lead before trailing 32-27 at the end of the first quarter.
Francisco Garcia came in for the Kings in the second quarter and made four of his five three-pointers, but Emeka Okafor was having a better night for the Wizards with 16 points and eight rebounds in the first half.
The Kings and Wizards both scored 19 points each in the third quarter and the fourth quarter went down to the wire.
After Martell Webster tied the game at 94, Isaiah Thomas hit the game-winning shot with one second left on the clock. Marcus Thornton stole the inbounds pass to seal the Kings' 96-94 win.
Thomas had a team-high 22 points and a game-high seven assists and Garcia finished with 17 points. Tyreke Evans finished with 13 points, five rebounds and six assists and Robinson had nine points and two blocks in his first trip back home.
Okafor finished with game-highs of 23 points and 15 rebounds for the Wizards and John Wall had 19 points and a team-high six assists.
Robinson saw floor time over DeMarcus Cousins and Jason Thompson but Kings coach Keith Smart said Robinson was working at the time:
I thought Thomas (Robinson) provided us what we needed. It doesn't matter to me who's on the floor. The bottom line is we win the game and Thomas gets some credit, Isaiah (gets) some credit, but the bottom line is Sacramento got all the credit because we won the game and that the thing that you want to do.
When you win a game, everyone gets the accolades here and there, but it makes no difference who is on the floor, who got the last shot — Sacramento won the game.
The Kings will play the Boston Celtics for the third game on their six-game road trip. The Celtics will without All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo for the rest of the year after he tore his ACL.
Tip-off will be on Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. PST.
