Rockets Vs. Spurs Final Score: Houston Upsets San Antonio, 105-102

The Houston Rockets 105-102 win over the San Antonio Spurs gave the Rockets their sixth straight win which improved their record to 9-7. This was the Spurs fourth game in five nights so they rested Tim Duncan, and that did certainly did help Houston get the victory.

The Rockets started off hot as the Spurs looked lost during the first quarter and after a Spurs timeout they readjusted their game plan and had all plays run through Tony Parker. Once the Spurs did that they cut into the Rockets lead, but at the end of the first quarter the Rockets led by five points.

After the first quarter the two teams went back-and-forth for the rest of the game and San Antonio had a chance to tie or take the lead when they were down 101-99 with 1:15 left in the fourth quarter. The Rockets nearly lost the ball on the inbounds but Goran Dragic was able to pick up the loose ball and scored a basket to put the Rockets up four and that shot sealed the win for the Rockets.

Kevin Martin led the Rockets on Saturday by scoring 25 points in the win.
