Video: Hornets' Kemba Walker hits game-winning layup to beat Knicks
With four seconds remaining in the game and New York leading by one, Walker collected an inbounds pass and immediately attacked off the dribble going left. As he turned the corner past Jose Calderon, Walker drove right at Amar'e Stoudemire, lofting a left-handed layup over the Knicks forward before crashing to the court. The shot rattled in as the buzzer sounded, giving Charlotte the one point home victory.
"We let [the Knicks] back in the game, that's been our problem," Walker said during a postgame interview. "I saw daylight and made a tough basket."
Back in October, the fourth-year guard hit a game-winner in overtime to down the Bucks.
Walker finished with 11 points, four rebounds and four assists. Gerald Henderson led Charlotte with a team-high 22 points, two rebounds and two assists.
Carmelo Anthony paced the Knicks with a game-high 32 points, seven rebounds and four assists. J.R. Smith added 14 points, five assists and four rebounds in a losing effort.
Charlotte improved to 5-15 and snapped a 10-game losing streak. New York fell to 4-17 and lost its seventh straight game.
