Kemba Walker and Nic Batum combined to shoot 13-of-35 and notched a cumulative 32 points in Wednesday’s win.
Walker had 22 while Batum had 10, and the duo shot just 1-for-11 from deep. The Hornets were propped up by the unlikely outburst of Marco Belinelli and a good night from Frank Kaminsky, but the off night from their stars made this one closer than it needed to be. Batum was particularly ineffective tonight, countering his six assists with five turnovers. Both may be struggling as the Hornets fade but you can’t think about benching them.
