Kemba Walker made 10-of-18 from the field for 31 points against the Suns during a 120-106 win on Sunday, adding four rebounds, nine assists and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes.
That's his 13th game with 30-plus points this season to match his career high from last year. Even with a really rough six-game slump earlier this month, Kemba is performing very well since the break with averages of 24.2 points, 3.7 boards, 5.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 3.7 treys. The main reason why is Kemba has put up an awesome 70.3 effective field goal percentage on his catch-and-shoot attempts in his previous 16 games -- also 71.4 percent on his one-dribble treys. He's ballin'. Mar 26 - 4:36 PM

Kemba Walker's 28 points weren't enough in Friday's 112-105 loss to the Cavaliers.

The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for the Hornets and they are now 3.0 games behind the No. 8 seed (Heat). Walker shot 10-of-20 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line with five assists, two rebounds, two steals, one block and five triples in 39 minutes. His value will be safe until the Hornets are mathematically eliminated from a playoff spot.
Mar 24 - 10:35 PM

Kemba Walker needed 21 shots to score 22 points on Wednesday, adding seven assists, three rebounds and one clutch 3-pointer in 33 minutes of action.

Walker is jacking up nearly 10 three-pointers per game in March, putting him in Steph Curry and James Harden territory. He was 1-of-6 from deep tonight and all his owners can do is wait for him to snap out of his current cold spell. His next chance comes vs. Kyrie Irving and the Cavs on Friday.
Mar 22 - 9:41 PM

Kemba Walker made 5-of-18 from the field for 16 points with two rebounds, six assists and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes during a 98-93 win over the Wizards on Saturday.

It took a while, but Walker is finally cold. In his last four, he's made just 33.8 percent from the field for his 17.0 points per game. Walker has been getting killed with mid-range misses, making just 3-of-14 in that span while he's also been below average at the rim at 50.0 percent -- league average was 60.3 percent. Walker's owners shouldn't worry and this is nothing new for the streaky guard.
Mar 18 - 10:41 PM

Kemba Walker struggled in 30 minutes during a lopsided loss on Wednesday, scoring seven points on 3-of-11 shooting with four assists and one rebound.

Nicolas Batum (migraines) was out tonight and the Hornets sputtered at both ends, shooting just 40.0 percent from the field while allowing the Pacers to shoot 53.4 percent. Kemba didn't have any 3-pointers or defensive stats to ease the sting tonight, but he should bounce back vs. the Wizards on Saturday.
Mar 15 - 9:51 PM

Kemba Walker scored 24 points with eight rebounds, 12 assists and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday.

He had a chance to send this game into double overtime, but Walker missed a very deep trey on the last play. He has scored 23 points in each of his last eight games with at least three 3-pointers in each of those. Also, the 12 dimes is a welcomed sight after turning in just two combined in his previous two. Walker looks ready for a big-time finish.
Mar 11 - 10:19 PM

Kemba Walker made 9-of-13 from the field for 23 points with one rebound, one assist and five 3-pointers in just 24 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

It looked like it was going to be another monster game for Walker, but the Hornets ran away with this one. He has come out with guns blazin' since his All-Star Game appearance, averaging 27.4 points, 3.9 boards, 4.7 assists, 1.1 steals, 1.8 turnovers and 4.2 treys on 48.8 percent from the field and 93.2 percent from the line. He looks poised for a strong finish after a really bad slump coming into the break.
Mar 10 - 10:10 PM

Kemba Walker scored 33 points in a losing effort vs. the Heat, making 11-of-24 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs with five 3-pointers, four boards, one assist, one steal and one block.

Kemba was held scoreless in the first quarter but it didn't take him long to get going in the second quarter. He's prone to cold spells but this isn't one of them -- in his previous seven games, Kemba was racking up top-10 value with averages of 27.3 points, 4.0 triples, 4.4 boards, 5.7 assists and 1.3 steals, all while making 47.4 percent FGs and 92.1 percent FTs. He's peaking at an ideal moment for fantasy owners.
Mar 8 - 11:06 PM

Kemba Walker scored 28 points in Monday's 100-88 win over the Pacers.

Walker was just named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week for the fifth time in his career, tying a franchise high. He put up 27.7 points per game in his previous three outings and kept his foot on the gas tonight, shooting 10-of-22 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line with seven assists, six rebounds, one steal and four triples. As good as Walker has been, his team is currently 3.0 games behind the Bulls for the No. 8 seed in the East.
Mar 6 - 11:16 PM

Kemba Walker scored 26 points during a 120-103 loss to the Suns on Thursday, adding four rebounds, eight assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

He really needs some help and he could actually need some more with Frank Kaminsky (shoulder) getting hurt. Walker is coming off his worst month of the season with only 20.8 points per game in February, and the Hornets have also only won three games since Jan. 22 to bump them down to the No. 11 seed. Walker is probably going to be more of a top 30-50 player going forward instead of that top-20 guy he was to start the year.
Mar 3 - 12:24 AM

Kemba Walker scored 30 points on 9-of-18 shooting vs. the Lakers on Tuesday.

The Lakers have allowed the third most fantasy points to point guards this season, so Walker had a field day, adding seven assists, five rebounds and five 3-pointers. This was his 11th game of the season with 30+ points and ninth game with 5+ 3-pointers, and his owners can expect more of the same on Thursday vs. the Suns in another cupcake matchup.
Mar 1 - 1:45 AM

Kemba Walker carried the Hornets on Sunday with 34 points, six 3-pointers, two rebounds, two assists and one steal in a tough road loss vs. the Clippers.

Kemba has never beaten the Clippers in his career, now sporting an unenviable 0-10 record. He forced overtime with a clutch 3-pointer, followed by a pair of free throws, to quickly erase a five-point deficit with under 30 seconds left. His undermanned team didn't have enough in the bonus frame, however, and the struggling Hornets are now 2.5 games out of the No. 8 seed.
Feb 27 - 12:41 AM

Kemba Walker scored 12 points with three rebounds, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

His February is not going well at all. This month, he's averaging just 18.3 points, 4.0 boards, 5.4 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.1 treys on 40.1 percent from the field. Walker has really struggled in the paint, making just 21-of-52 (40.4 percent), which is almost 20 percent below league average. The All-Star should snap out of it, so he's a bit of a buy-low player.
Feb 25 - 8:45 PM

Kemba Walker hit 11-of-19 shots, 3-of-6 3-pointers and 9-of-9 free throws on his way to 34 points, seven rebounds, six assists and two steals in 42 minutes of Thursday's 114-108 overtime loss to the Pistons.

Walker and Detroit's Kentavious Caldwell-Pope put on a fantastic show in the fourth quarter, matching each other shot for shot, while KCP's big 3-pointer sent the game to overtime. Walker only had seven points in 20 minutes of the All-Star Game last weekend, so he was ready to show something tonight.
Feb 23 - 10:14 PM

Kemba Walker finished the Hornets' road loss on Wednesday with 24 points, six 3-pointers, nine assists, four rebounds and two steals.

Walker broke out of a prolonged slump on Monday with 29 efficient points, and he went 8-of-15 from the field tonight. Coach Steve Clifford attributed part of his recent struggles to the absence of Cody Zeller's screen-setting abilities. "Cody is an important part of Kemba’s game," Clifford said. "It’s tough for us to win when [Walker] doesn’t play well." Charlotte just has to hope that their star PG uses the All-Star break to rest and recharge, despite his involvement in Sunday's marquee game.
