Kemba Walker has been described as clutch in the past. He hit some big shots while he was at UCONN, and he showed us that it wasn’t just a college fad on Wednesday night.
Walker received the inbound pass with one second left in overtime against the Raptors, and he hit a mid-range fadeaway at the buzzer to beat the Raptors 104-102. Walker had 29 points in the game, but it was the last two that mattered. The Bobcats have exceeded expectations in the early season, as they sit at 12-14 so far, and they are currently the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference (that’s not saying much).
Walker is averaging 17.4 points for the Bobcats this season, and he is looking like a guy who will be a good combo guard for years to come. The Raptors could have drafted Walker in the 2011 draft, but passed on him for Jonas Valanciunas. Walker made them regret it for one night, and he showed them his clutch skills.
