NBA Playoffs 2014: Kemba Walker goes off the back board to himself (video)

The Charlotte Bobcats are fighting for their playoffs lives on Monday night.

The seventh-seeded Bobcats had a fantastic season and were one of the most improved teams in the NBA, going from 21 wins last season to 43 this season and returning to the postseason for the first time since 2010.

However, since they have lost the first three games of the first round playoff series against the two-time defending champion Miami Heat, they have their backs against the wall and are facing elimination. Take into account that the Bobcats’ best player, big man Al Jefferson isn’t playing and the Bobcats are in a lot of trouble.

That puts almost all of the Bobcats’ pressure on point guard Kemba Walker, the ninth overall selection of the  2o11 Draft, who had an excellent season.

Walker is trying to keep the Bobcats alive and made one fantastic play. On one play, Walker badly missed a shot, presumably on purpose, got the rebound and put it back in.
