Houston:

Kevin Martin scored 25 points, Luis Scola added 18 and Kyle Lowry had 16 points, nine rebounds and eight assists to lead the Houston Rockets to a 105-85 win over the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday night.

The Rockets took advantage of the Spurs' poor shooting at the start and built a big lead. First-year Houston coach Kevin McHale got away with resting his starters in the fourth quarter, with his team playing the first of the three games on consecutive nights.

DeJuan Blair scored 22 points and grabbed 12 rebounds for San Antonio, who shot 38 percent (35 of 93) and went 2 for 17 from 3-point range. Tim Duncan went 1-for-8 from the field and scored four points and Richard Jefferson went 2-for-10 and had only five points for the Spurs.
