Charlotte Hornets Player Grades: Kemba puts on a show in loss

Charlotte Hornets' Kemba Walker steals the ball from Boston Celtics' Marcus Morris

That was and incredible 20 seconds of Jimmy Butler.

Walker had 60 points, the highest total in the National Basketball Association this season, but Jimmy Butler hit a 3-pointer as time expired in overtime to lift the Philadelphia 76ers to a 122-119 victory over the Hornets.

A big second quarter helped the hosts Orlando Magic snap the Los Angeles Lakers' four-game win streak with a 130-117 win.

Butler's dagger spoiled Walker's big night with the Hornets point guard pouring in a franchise record 60 points, adding seven rebounds, four assists and four steals.

After the road win, Sixers point guard Ben Simmons had nothing but praise for his new teammates after his late-game heroics, explaining to reporters post-game what he was thinking when Butler launched the three. He finished with 60 points on 21-34 shooting from the field and 12-12 shooting from the line.

Walker had 37 and 30 points in his previous two games against the 76ers, but only shot a combined 33 percent. Walker held up his palms after the ball went it, similar to that famous gesture by Hornets owner Michael Jordan many years ago with the Bulls. Embiid has dealt with foot and knee injuries that cut into his time on the floor during his first two professional seasons, but the All-Star did play in 63 regular-season games during the 2017-18 campaign.

"He makes these winning plays that create momentum for you, that you just can't even put a number on it, you just feel in the game", Borrego said "He makes a block, and it leads to a dunk on the other end".

76ers: Simmons threw an alley-oop pass to a breaking Butler from three-quarters court. Larry Johnson, Alonzo Mourning, Glen Rice, Baron Davis, Kendall Gill all left in free agency before their prime.

Borrego didn't offer any specifics as to how the rotation might change Monday against the Boston Celtics, but it was clear Sunday he was reevaluating.
