HOUSTON ROCKETS WIN AT NEW ORLEANS HORNETS
Fri, 04 Mar 2011 04:47 AM EST

It looks like Kevin Martin is on top of his game lately. Having scored more than 30 points in the two previous games, Martin and the Houston Rockets were very hopeful before their game away against the New Orleans Hornets. However, the first half of the game did not really go Houston’s way. Odds.

The first quarter started with the Hornets being the better team. They had an awesome defensive play and their offense was good enough to outscore the Rockets. The home fans were cheering and every New Orleans player had good reasons to feel great. The score for the first quarter was 21-27.

Things looked pretty much the same in the second quarter. The Rockets couldn’t get past the New Orleans’ defense and they were heavily outscored. Martin couldn’t really make a difference and the Hornets were on their way to secure another win.

“For us to be down [by 16] and fight and claw our way back — it just shows the growth of this team and how good we can be and how dangerous we can be,” Chuck Hayes stated.

The score in the second quarter was 19-28, which brought the first half score to 40-55. It really looked like there could be no way out of this for the Rockets. Scores.

“To have that kind of lead on your home floor and not be able to close it out is disheartening,” Monty Williams, New Orleans Hornets coach, stated. “Thirty-four second-half points is nonsense. We didn’t run our offensive sets hard. We walked the ball up and looked like an old team. That team played last night. We should have been the aggressor. We got enough defensive stops, but we didn’t run an efficient offense tonight.”

However, something changed in the third quarter and the Hornets seemed unable to reproduce their good offense. The Houston Rockets managed to get their defense going and, helped by the Hornets’ lack of aggression, managed to reduce the difference by 5 points. The overall score got up to 66-72.

“I was just being aggressive, knowing I could attack the basket when Okafor was out of the game,” Kevin Martin stated. “There was just a good matchup for me.” Las Vegas odds.

However, it was the final quarter that made the difference. The Hornets continued their dismal offensive play and the Rockets took advantage. Powered by Kevin Martin, they managed to completely dismantle the deficit and went ahead to win this one 91-89.
