Walker Leads Bobcats Past Nets
Riding a 31-point performance from Kemba Walker, the Charlotte Bobcats handed the Brooklyn Nets their sixth loss in seven games by a score of 95-91 on Wednesday.
Walker shot a blistering 60% from the floor and drained four from downtown. He also hit two free throws with six seconds left in regulation to seal the victory. It was the first time in eight attempts that the Bobcats defeated the Nets.
The Nets had 18 turnovers in the game, which saw guard Deron Williams re-injure his left ankle in the second quarter. He did not return.
Andray Blatche led the now 3-8 Brooklyn Nets with 25 points, his season-high. Joe Johnson contributed 19.
The Nets travel to Minnesota next to take on the Timberwolves on Friday night.
