--F Chase Budinger made his first start since succeeding mentor Shane Battier as the Rockets' starting small forward, and he had his second consecutive outstanding offensive game. He followed his 30-point game against the Cavaliers with 27 against the Nets, scoring more than he ever had in a game prior to those two nights. He hit eight of 11 shots, including three of four 3-pointers, against New Jersey. Budinger added six rebounds, four assists and two steals.

--G Kevin Martin had a second consecutive 30-point game, needing just 15 shots against the Nets. He made nine, going 4-for-6 from beyond the arc. The Rockets are 9-5 when he scores 30 or more points.

--F Luis Scola was considered days from receiving a contract offer from the Nets when the Rockets signed him last summer. On Saturday, he offered New Jersey a reminder of what it is missing. He made nine of his 15 shots to score 23 points in just 29 minutes. Scola produced 11 points in six fourth-quarter minutes as the Rockets blew the game open.


--C Yao Ming (stress fracture in left ankle) is out for the season.
