Player Of The Night: Kemba Walker

November 23th, 2015

Walker had the second best scoring output of his career on Monday scoring 39 points on 16-of-23 shooting (69-percent). He had five assists, six rebounds, three blocks, and two steals in 47 minutes of actions. He only turned the ball over twice. Walker dominated the fourth quarter and overtime going 9-for-10 from the floor with 23 points.

Walker has been exceptionally good his last five games averaging 24.4 points, 5.0 assists, 4.6 rebounds, and 2.2 steals per contest. He’s shooting 58-percent from the floor and 52-percent from beyond the arc.

This is the type of play we’ve been waiting for from Walker since he entered the league in 2011. Maybe he’s beginning the transformation into the player we’ve searched for since his magical NCAA tournament run in which he led UCONN to a National Championship.
