Rockets' Kevin Martin Has 32-Point First Half; Cavs Trail 66-58

Well, well — who saw THIS coming?

The Cavaliers put 58 points in the first half tonight against the Houston Rockets, and still find themselves down by eight points at the intermission, thanks to a huge first half from the Rocket’s Kevin Martin, who has put up 32 points already on 10-of-12 shooting and nine of ten free throws.

Luckily for Cleveland, no other Rocket has more than eight points, while three Cavaliers are in double figures, led by Antawn Jamison with 16.

Both teams are shooting well, with the Cavaliers making 48% of their first-half shots, and the Rockets shooting 54%. Both teams have made thirteen free throws in this game featuring little defense, as the Cavs try to break a six-game losing streak.
