Batum looked like Charlotte’s best player for most of the night, as he parlayed his versatile skill set into a nice line. He finished with 24 points, seven assists, three boards, one steal and one block. Batum repeatedly drew contact against Miami’s perimeter defenders, and shot 12-of-12 at the foul line. Meanwhile, Walker struggled with his shot a bit (going 6-of-17 from the field and 3-of-5 from the line) but managed to finish with 18 points, five assists, two boards and three 3-pointers. Walker struggled defensively in this one, however, as he struggled to stay in front of Goran Dragic and failed to record a single defensive counter.
