Houston:

Kevin Martin scored 27 points, Kyle Lowry matched a career high with 18 assists as the Houston Rockets led from start to finish in a 95-84 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night.

Luis Scola added 21 points, Jordan Hill grabbed a career-high 15 rebounds and Chase Budinger scored 17 points for the Rockets, who looked fresh despite playing their third game in three nights.

Joe Johnson and Al Horford scored 15 points apiece for Atlanta.

Former Rocket Tracy McGrady scored 13 points on 6-for-11 shooting. He first entered the game with 3:57 left in the first quarter, and most fans greeted him with boos. McGrady played for the Rockets from 2004-10, a period defined more by injuries to him and Yao Ming than by team success.
