Video: Bobcats’ Kemba Walker hits OT buzzer-beater to down Raptors
Kemba Walker hit a buzzer-beating jumper to push the Bobcats to a 104-102 overtime victory over the Raptors in Toronto on Wednesday.
With the score tied at 102 and one second remaining in the extra period, Charlotte inbounded the ball to Walker, who came open in the left corner after using an Al Jefferson screen to free himself from Kyle Lowry. Turning into the catch, Walker rose up without dribbling and buried an 18-footer over Jonas Valanciunas as the buzzer sounded.
Walker finished with a team-high 29 points (on 10-for-18 shooting), five rebounds and one assist in 44 minutes. Jefferson added 24 points and 11 rebounds for the Bobcats.
DeMar DeRozan led the Raptors with a game-high 30 points (on 11-for-26 shooting), six rebounds and one assist. Lowry added 17 points and six assists in a losing effort.
Charlotte improved to 12-14 with the win; Toronto dropped to 9-14 with the loss.
