Kemba Walker hit a buzzer beating jumper in overtime to lead the Charlotte Bobcats to a 104-102 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night (you can watch the video here).
The game got very sloppy down the stretch with each team missing key free throws, including Walker, who missed two free throws with the Bobcats nursing an one-point lead and only 11 seconds to play.
“Kemba, he lives for those shots,” Bobcats’ big man Al Jefferson told the Associated Press. “I really think he missed those free throws on purpose so we could be in that situation, because that’s what he lives for. That’s what he does. He’s been doing that his whole life.”
Walker finished the game with 29 points on 10-of-18 shooting. Jefferson scored 24 points and grabbed 11 rebounds and Josh McRoberts had 13 points and seven rebounds for the Bobcats.
The Raptors were led by DeMar DeRozan, who poured in a game-high 30 points and grabbed six rebounds. Kyle Lowry had 17 points and hit a three-pointer that sent the game to overtime (you can see that shot here).
The Bobcats are now 12-14 while the Raptors fall to 9-14.
