This week was all Cardiac Kemba, as Walker almost single-handedly led his team to a 3-1 record to climb to seventh place in the Eastern Conference. Walker was having an average week by his standards, averaging 19 points and just under four assists in his first three games before exploding against the Bulls for 37 points and 10 assists. This game was Walker’s third double double of the season, and the 37 points was his fifth-highest mark on the season, bringing his weekly averages to 23.8 points and 5.3 assists. Walker continues to do everything in his power to keep this Hornets team afloat and will have to do just that if he wants to earn his team a playoff spot for the first time since their 15-16 season.
