The NBA ‘s new scoring leader was determined his latest big night wouldn’t go to waste.
Walker followed up his NBA season-best, 60-point effort in an overtime loss to the 76ers on Saturday night with another spectacular performance. He scored 21 points in the fourth quarter and made 14 of 25 shots overall, including seven more 3-pointers.
He finished 7 of 10 from the floor with four 3-pointers in the fourth quarter as Charlotte erased a 10-point deficit to pull even at 8-8 on the season.
“I just wanted to win, man,” Walker said. “I wanted to win a close game. We’ve been in every game for the most part. There’s a couple we haven’t been in but you know things just haven’t been going our way in those situations and tonight it did and it felt good.”
Walker passed Golden State’s guard Stephen Curry to take over the NBA scoring lead at 29.6 points per game.
Walker also passed the injured Curry for the league lead in 3-pointers made with 65. Read more
