Kemba Walker PG CHA 16 Hrs
Kemba Walker struggled against Mike Conley and the Grizzlies on Saturday, hitting 3-of-13 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, four rebounds, five assists and a block in the loss.
Walker has really been struggling with his shot, except for last Wednesday when he hit 7-of-14 shots, and was still in a funk tonight. If you toss out Wednesday's 7-of-14 shooting night, Walker has hit just 17-of-62 shots ini the other five games over his last six. He'll get hot again soon, so just keep rolling him out there. Despite the poor shooting, he's still averaging 12.6 points and 8.0 assists over his last five games.

He only turned the ball over once to give him a terrific 14:1 assist:turnover ratio, but he did shoot 5-of-13 from the field. Walker is in a minor shooting slump over his last five with a field goal percentage of 33.3 and his averages aren't great at 12.6 points, 2.4 boards, 7.8 dimes, 1.0 steals, 0.4 blocks and 0.6 triples. He'll have a tough matchup against Mike Conley on Saturday.

Kemba Walker hit 7-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer for 19 points and nine assists in Wednesday's easy win over the Pacers.
This was the first time in seven games that Walker hit at least half his shots, and he had made just three field goals in four of his previous five games coming in. As Walker has shown in the past, once he busts out of a slump, it tends to be some time before the next one arrives. Maybe the slump is over and he'll be able to stay hot through the end of the season.

This is great news for Walker and the Bobcats after he was dealing with some Achilles soreness on Tuesday.
