Hornets guard Kemba Walker hit a game-winning layup at the buzzer to beat the Knicks 103-102 in Charlotte on Friday.

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.
