Kemba Walker has been balling out lately for the Hornets which has been a major reason for Charlotte having won each of their 5 games this month. During the 5 game winning streak, Kemba Walker is averaging 31.6 points, 6.8 assists, and 5.8 rebounds per game while shooting above 50% from the field and from beyond the arc.

Walker has been ridiculed, he’s been cast away as a top point guard, and was even snubbed from the All-Star Game, but Kemba hasn’t let that affect his play one bit.

Last night against the Pelicans, particularly, Kemba put on a show.

Kemba finished with 35 points, 7 rebounds, 7 assists, and did not turn over the ball. He was efficient, played great defense, and led the team to a victory over New Orleans who had just come off a big victory against the Kings.

Walker, last night, was the first person to have a stat line of 35/7/7 while not turning over the ball since Dirk Nowitzki in the 2010 season.

The Hornets have won 11 out of their last 13 games because of Walker’s recent surge. The Charlotte Hornets are now only a half game back of the Atlanta Hawks for the 5th seed in the East.

If Kemba can keep up this production, the Hornets could have a realistic chance of upsetting some teams in the playoffs while making their way closer and closer to the NBA Finals.
