Recap

Kevin Martin scored 21 points to lead six players in double figures and the host Houston Rockets cruised past the suddenly slumping New York Knicks, 104-89, on Wednesday night.

The Rockets led, 36-27, after the first quarter. The Knicks (22-19) stayed within striking most of the game until Martin buried a 3-pointer with 5:30 to play to extend the lead to 96-83. New York got no closer
thereafter.
