Kemba Walker had his first double-double of the season on Friday with 18 points, two boards, 10 assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Sixers.
He looked like the quintessential point guard in the easy win and didn't even turn the ball over. The Bobcats got easy hoops all night and racked up 58 points in the paint. They entered tonight ranking dead last in that department and their offense looked great. The team is better on offense with Jeff Taylor instead of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, so maybe it will help Walker.

Kemba Walker scored 27 points as the Bobcats nearly upset the Heat in Miami on Sunday -- he made 10-of-22 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs with two 3-pointers and two steals.
Walker's six assists were negated by his six turnovers, and the loss was especially brutal since Charlotte led most of the way and hasn't defeated the Heat in their past 13 meetings. Fantasy owners can breathe easier after watching Walker brick his way to 22.2 percent shooting in his previous two games.

Kemba Walker hit just 3-of-10 shots for 10 points, five rebounds, two assists and six turnovers in the Bobcats' 92-76 win over the Bucks on Friday.
Walker is really in the dumps right now and in order to be the top shelf fantasy play he was drafted to be he's going to have to demand a different style of game than the one Al Jefferson brings to the Bobcats. Whether or not that happens remains to be seen, but he will begin to improve as he and Jefferson get to know one another on the floor.

Kemba Walker shot just 3-of-17 from the field to finish Wednesday's game with 15 points, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, three assists and two steals.
Although his overall production is holding steady, Walker's FG percentage has slipped from 42.3 percent last year to just 38.7 percent this season. A glance at this shot chart reveals part of the problem, as he's attempting fewer shots in the restricted area and more shots from mid-range. He's clinging to mid-round value but won't reach his preseason ADP unless he starts being more selective offensively.

He has really picked it up over his last four, shooting a sterling 53.8 percent from the field for 21.5 points per game in that span. Walker is getting to the basket and is taking much better shots compared to earlier in the year. He's up to 38.6 percent from the field on the season and that number is climbing.

Kemba Walker shot 5-of-10 from the field for 11 points to go with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday.
He entered tonight shooting 36.0 percent from the field, but he's been above that threshold in each of his last three games. Walker did not play in the fourth quarter with the Bobcats up 74-51 at the end of the third, so that explains his 28 minutes. His terrible start looks to be a thing of the past.

Kemba Walker finally broke out of a dreadful shooting slump in Wednesday's win over the Nets, hitting 12-of-20 shots and four 3-pointers on his way to a season-high 31 points along with five rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block.
Wow. Walker came in hitting just 28-of-110 shots over his previous seven games and may have been dropped in your league. He's not going to play this well every night, but there was also no way he was going to play that poorly for much longer. If you need a point guard, think about grabbing him as the slump may finally be over.
