Kemba Walker fought through a tough shooting night on Friday night to finish with 16 points, five rebounds, five assists, three steals, two blocks, one turnover and three 3-pointers.
Walker’s efficiency has been low for a while so Friday’s 5-of-16 shooting should come as no surprise. What does come as a pleasant surprise though was Kemba’s five defensive stats. This was his first multi-block game of the season and he did tremendous work at that end. Don’t look for the shot blocking to continue but the steals definitely could. In his two prior games, he had zero. But in the six games before that, he had 15.
