Doing Lines: That Kevin Martin Kid Might Be Good Enough to Start

Filed under: Bucks, Jazz, Kings, NBA Last NightSacramento’s Kevin Martin is one of the league’s most efficient scorers, but after missing most of the season with an injury, the team wanted to work him back in by bringing him off the bench. I think he’s ready to start now.

Martin poured in 36 points on 11-21 shooting (25 came in the first half) against the Nets, after dropping 45 on the Pacers in the previous game. Martin set an NBA record by scoring the most points off the bench in consecutive NBA games, besting Calvin Murphy’s 80 back in the 1980-81 season by a single point.

: The Bucks are 7-1 at home over their last eight games, and with performances like the one from Michael Redd put up against the Raptors, you can see why. Redd finished with 35 points, six rebounds, and four assists. His teammate Charlie Villanueva added 25, six, and four off the bench, including 13 in the fourth quarter to get the win over a previously hot Raptors team.

: It’s not usually fair to put up players’ stats when the play the Gol*en State Warriors (no D — see what I did there?), but Deron Williams’ 25 points and 15 assists — on 9-of-15 shooting with just three turnovers — is a line definitely worth noticing.
