Kevin Martin Injury: Rockets Guard Sits Out Win Over Knicks

Houston Rockets leading scorer Kevin Martin sat out his second straight game with what the team is now calling inflammation of the right heel. The Rockets won their second straight without Martin on Saturday defeating the New York Knicks 97-84 at the Toyota Center.

Martin was ruled out shortly before Saturday's tip off against the Knicks even though he lobbied to play. Rockets coach Kevin McHale talked about the decision to sit Martin before the game:

"He's a little disappointed he's not going to play tonight," McHale said, "but this is a crazy schedule and we'd much rather him be a little more cautious tonight because we have eight games in the next 10 or 12 games coming up in 11 or 12 days coming up so that's what we are kind of shooting for."

Martin is still listed as day-to-day and his status for Monday's game against Minnesota is still in question.

Rockets Vs. Knicks Final Score: Houston Defeat New York 97-84

The Houston Rockets have now won nine of their last 10 games after defeating the New York Knicks 97-84. The Rockets bench came up huge in this game by scoring 61 of the teams 97 points. Chase Budinger came off the bench to lead all Rockets with 19 points which was his second straight game he led the team in scoring.

The Rockets did all of this without their leading scorer in Kevin Martin who sat out this game with plantar fasciitis and Kyle Lowry who is the teams third-leading scorer was held to only three points tonight. Courtney Lee filled in for the injured Martin and scored 14 points and had four steals.

The change in this game came during the second and third quarters when the Rockets outscored the Knicks by 16 points. The Knicks had a bad shooting night by by going 34 for 89 from the field and five of 26 from three-point land. The Knicks did get 23 points from Amare Stoudemire and 14 from Tyson Chandler, but that is all the significant scoring they received tonight and it was not enough to counter against the five Rockets who scored in double figures.
