Walker’s 60 points not enough; 76ers top Hornets in OT

Share

The Hornets' Kemba Walker scored a career-high 60 for the most points in a game since March 2017 when Devin Booker scored 70.

He added another two in overtime.

While the Sixers already had risky weapons in Simmons and Embiid, one thing is becoming clear - newly-acquired Jimmy Butler may be the most unsafe of them all late in games.

Jimmy Butler appeared to take aim at his former Minnesota Timberwolves team-mates after scoring 28 points on his home debut for the Philadelphia 76ers in a 113-107 win over the Utah Jazz. He had only posted 12 points of 3-of-10 shooting with four assists, three rebounds and four turnovers. "JJ walked on and said 'I bet you won't call game on this one.' I had to listen to him".

US envoy hopes for peace deal with Taliban
Afghanistan's Taliban has long refused USA demands to negotiate with the Western-backed government in Kabul. A Taliban delegation met with Khalilzad in Doha in October to discuss ending the Afghan conflict.

Batum should spend plenty of time on Philadelphia's newest star, Jimmy Butler, who was officially acquired by the organization in a blockbuster trade earlier this week.

The Suns haven't had many 20-second stretches to celebrate quite like Butler's this season.

Said Butler: "I didn't think (Walker) would settle for a jump shot in that moment".

The scores were tied with 34.7 seconds left in overtime when Willy Hernangomez stole a Simmons pass. The versatile four-time All-Star put up 14 points down in Orlando on Wednesday night and through November 15, is averaging 20.6 points, 5.1 rebounds, 4.1 assists and a career-high 2.2 steals in 11 total games.

Asked how he has got so hot in the last couple of nights, Walker said in his on-court interview: "I'm just playing basketball". Marvin Williams and Cody Zeller fouled out.

Joel Embiid's stat-line might as well be imprinted as a permanent staple in every 76ers postgame report.

Kemba Walker and his Charlotte Hornet teammate's went toe-to-toe with a purposeful 76ers squad last evening, and the outcome was nothing less than spectacular.

Players strongly considering not playing on Azteca Stadium field
The Rams (9-1) will host the Chiefs (9-1) at the Coliseum instead, in a game that could be a rehearsal for the Super Bowl in 2019. The stadium, which also hosts games for Cruz Azul and Club America, has endured a heavy rainfall this season as well.
