The Philadelphia 76ers have been the talk of the National Basketball Association since they acquired Jimmy Butler in a trade earlier this week. The All-Star guard scored more than half of the Hornets' points on the night, setting a franchise record with 60 points. Prior to his arrival, the Sixers lacked a closer in the clutch who can create a shot for himself or make a play for his teammates.
Walker scored 58 points, going 20-for-29 shooting, through regulation to put up the most points of any National Basketball Association player this season. Walker shot a sizzling 21-of-34 from the field, going 6-of-14 from three.

This time he was making everything, including banking in a 3-pointer to give the Hornets the lead with 44 seconds left in regulation.
