A day after a win that guard Kevin Martin called the season's best, he became the first Rocket this season to be named Western Conference Player of the Week. Martin scored at least 30 points in three consecutive games, helping the Rockets to a 4-0 week. He was the first Rocket to be named West Player of the Week since Tracy McGrady in March 2008. Martin is the third Rockets guard to have six 30-point games in the same month. Calvin Murphy had 10 30-point games in March 1978 and six in December 1973. McGrady had eight in January 2008.
