Kemba Walker just owned the Toronto Raptors. This was his game — 29 points on 18 shots, he could get into the paint or went 5-of-7 from three.
Plus, he sank the game winner.
The Bobcats had 1 second to get a shot off, the score tied 102-102 at the end of overtime. Walker comes from the weak side off a couple of screens going on a horseshoe shaped run, his man Kyle Lowry gets picked off and Jonas Valanciunas is slow to react and rotate out on him. It wasn’t an easy shot — a quick, 18-footer after catching the ball with his back to the basket — but it was a clean look. Walker buried it.
And buried the Raptors.
