Having found one combination that worked, Rockets coach Kevin McHale was not about to try to find another.

He stuck with his backcourt until it dropped, then stuck with it some more. But if Kevin Martin and Kyle Lowry were going to give him 90 minutes each in two days, they made it worth their while.

Lowry carried the Rockets early and nailed the 3-pointer that helped them get to overtime. Once in the extra session, Martin scored the final six Rockets points as the Rockets outlasted the Portland Trail Blazers 107-105 on Saturday night at Toyota Center.

Lowry went from hitting 11 of 13 to missing 11 of 13, but he finished with 33 points, nine assists and eight rebounds. Martin had 28 points, making 12 of 13 free throws and hitting the jumper that put them ahead for good with 31.9 seconds left.

"I lost my mind," McHale joked of playing Martin and Lowry 49 minutes each.
