Butler's heroics spoil Walker's 60-point game as 76ers beat Hornets

Butler's heroics spoil Walker's 60-point game as 76ers beat Hornets

Another nail-biter saw the two-time defending champions Golden State Warriors drop a 112-109 decision to the Mavericks in Dallas. Of the last 16 times a player has scored 60-plus points in a game, only one of these resulted in a loss. "I'm confident in the shots I take, but that one, I'm glad I made it". We got incredible energy from the bench.

Hornets guard Jeremy Lamb added 20 points and 10 rebounds, tying the game at 119-119 with an and-1 layup with 34 seconds left in overtime, burying the free throw. "As much as I wanted the shot to go in to win the game, I also wanted it to go in because I didn't want Kemba to give me 70", Butler said half-jokingly.

Asked how he has got so hot in the last couple of nights, Walker said in his on-court interview: "I'm just playing basketball".

Walker's 43 points, five assists and four rebounds moved the Hornets to 8-8 for the season.

"I'm still proud of - that's an unbelievable thing to do", a frustrated Walker said.




The former Chicago Bulls guard was making his first appearance at Wells Fargo Center for his new side and praised his colleagues following Friday's win.

"Tonight's a great example - we fought so hard throughout this game and we deserved to win". Scoring 60 points in a game and getting the loss has got to be frustrating.

Butler didn't have a huge night statistically, scoring 15 points on 4-of-11 shooting. "We're going to talk about him making the shot, but what all the replays and the explanations of the shot should show, is his him blocking a shot out of midair and saving it over his shoulders and sprinting down the floor, and then we get a timeout".

Anthony Davis scored 40 and had eight rebounds and assists in the Pelicans' 125-115 victory over the Nuggets.

In addition, after going 13-14 from the free throw line, Embiid now has 158 made free throws this season.
