Kemba Walker had several great moments in the second half against the Philadelphia 76ers. The All-Star guard finished the contest with 24 points and a big step-back jumper over Al Horford to lead the Boston Celtics to their 3rd win in the series.
Walker said after the game that he has made this shot a lot. Walker is known for his step-back jumper even from his collegiate years in U-Conn. A trend that continued in the NBA on Charlotte and Boston.
“I’ve made that shot a lot. Tonight was just another example of it. Just try to create space … I was able to get some separation on Al. I’m just happy I made it.”
The Celtics are one win away from sweeping the series versus their division rival.
