Martin finished Wednesday's loss to the Lakers with 20 points (7-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-6 FT), 10 rebounds and three blocked shots across 37 minutes. With Houston limited to an eight-man rotation, Martin picked up his fifth straight start and compiled his third double-double during that span. His 37 minutes were actually the fewest he has played as a starter this season, highlighting the long look he has received down the stretch. Martin has performed well in May, posting per-game averages of 18.6 points, 8.7 boards and 1.1 blocks.
Martin produced 15 points (5-9 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, two steals and a blocked shot across 39 minutes in Monday's 140-129 loss to the Trail Blazers. Martin has now started four consecutive games with the short-handed Rockets, and he is making a strong case for a continued relationship with the squad next season. The rookie has multipositional flexibility and provides much-needed defensive muscle in the paint.
Martin recorded 27 points (11-19 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and two steals across 39 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Jazz. Martin has been enjoying a great run with the Rockets due to the rash of injuries that are affecting Houston, and he's taking advantage of that -- he now has two double-doubles over his last three appearances and has scored in double digits in five games in a row. Martin is averaging 21.0 points per game over that five-game span.
Martin tallied 26 points (10-21 FG, 6-10 3Pt), seven rebounds and seven assists in 39 minutes during Friday's 141-133 loss to the Bucks. The 20-year-old has now scored in double digits in six out of his last seven games. Martin has been on a roll lately, averaging 19.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.3 rebounds and 2.3 three-pointers over his last four games. The rookie should get plenty of minutes down the stretch with Houston dealing with a litany of injuries.
Martin totaled 23 points (10-17 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds, six assists and one block across 44 minutes in a 135-115 loss to the 76ers on Wednesday. Martin got the start because Houston had just seven active players going into Wednesday's contest, and the Rockets lost Kevin Porter (ankle) in the third quarter. The forward played well in his increased role, collecting new career-high point and assist totals and the second double-double of his career. Martin has scored in double figures in five of his last six games and is someone to monitor in fantasy leagues down the stretch.
