CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Kemba Walker scored 27 of his 31 points in the second half, and the Charlotte Bobcats ruined Stephen Curry's homecoming with a wire-to-wire 115-111 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Monday night.
Curry overcame a slow start to finish with a season-high 43 points, 32 of those coming in the second half.
Curry, a Charlotte native who burst on the national scene while playing at nearby Davidson College, scored 19 points in the fourth quarter, including a 27-footer with a hand in his face to cut the Bobcats' lead to 111-109 with 11 seconds left.
But the Warriors (12-10) couldn't contain Walker, and the point guard hit four free throws in the final 11 seconds to seal the victory.
Gerald Henderson had 24 points and Josh McRoberts had 11 points and 10 rebounds for the Bobcats (10-11), who won their second straight game.
