Martin and Scola lead Houston to victory over Minnesota

MINNESOTA (NBA.com exclusive) -- Thirty points from Kevin Martin, 25 points and 21 rebounds from Luis Scola, and no Al Jefferson in the paint for Minnesota. A good combination of events if you are a Rockets fan. If you're a Timberwolves fan, not so much.

It was Houston's eleventh straight victory over Minnesota. In their last meeting on January 13 in Houston, the Rockets needed three overtimes to win. They needed no extra time tonight, defeating Minnesota 112-98.

Houston has been struggling, having won only three of their last eleven games. So a trip to Minnesota was just what they needed. Also helpful was the fact that Minnesota's standout big man, Al Jefferson, was serving game two of a team-imposed two game suspension for a DUI infraction.

Scola was the primary recipient of Jefferson's absence.

"[Scola] had it going so well, it was hard to find time to sit him" Rick Adelman said. "And we got in foul trouble with our other 'bigs' and he's the one guy we have up front that can score. He's playing very well and rebounding very well."

Kevin Martin has averaged 21.7 points per game in the seven games since being traded to Houston from Sacramento. He was effective throughout this game, but especially in closing out the first and third quarters.

Houston closed the first quarter and with a 16-3 run and they closed the third quarter with a 9-0 run. Each run gave them a 16 point advantage over Minnesota.

"We play in spurts," Adelman said. "We always seem to do that. We get a lead and then get comfortable and let the other team come back. And then we have to makes plays."

Minnesota trailed by 20 points with 8:35 to play in the game, but went on a 17-4 run of their own to cut the deficit to seven with 2:45 to play. But with the score 99-92 Minnesota's Ryan Hollins followed up a Luis Scola jump shot with the shot clock expiring with a terrible in-bounds pass, which led to a Kevin Martin 3-pointer and Houston's lead remained in double-figures for the rest of the game.

"It was a fairly typical game for us," Minnesota coach Kurt Rambis said. "Pockets of playing really well and pockets of playing really poorly. Turnovers once again hurt us. ... But [Houston] does a good job of playing together as a team. They move the ball, they keep the basket clear and they read defenses really well. They did a good job out there. They deserved to win. They earned the win."
