CHARLOTTE, N. Luis Rengifo Angels Jersey .C. - Kemba Walker knew he was going to take the final shot, no matter what. So did his teammates.Thats just the way the Hornets fourth-year point guard likes it.As soon as we get in those situations, theyre like, Kemba, win the game, Walker said. When you have a bunch of guys that have that much confidence in you, of course you want to take that shot.Walker scored 31 points, including an awkward-looking 11-foot jumper from near the right baseline that somehow found its way in off the glass with 1.4 seconds left to lift Charlotte to a 98-94 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night.It was Walkers third game-winner of the season as the Hornets (13-24) overcame a 13-point third-quarter deficit to win their third straight.With the game tied, Walker drove deep to the right side of the lane close to the baseline, ducked his body and appeared to struggle getting the shot off as Jrue Holiday hit his arm. Walker muscled the ball up as the whistle blew, and it banked in. He added the free throw for the 3-point play.The Pelicans had one last chance to tie, but Marvin Williams stole the inbounds pass at half court and was fouled. He sank one of two shots to seal the victory.I dont know how that ball went it, Walker said with a laugh. It was so awkward because the angle was super awkward. I just got it up and was fortunate it went in. Its always a great feeling to make shots like that.Said Holiday: He drove the lane and I defended as best I could. He just made the shot.The Hornets have counted on Walker to take on an additional scoring load with Al Jefferson and Lance Stephenson out with injuries. Hes stepped up to the challenge with three straight 30-point games.Without many scoring options on the court, Walker took nearly every shot down the stretch and finished with 17 points in the second half. He missed two layups in the final two minutes, but wouldnt be deterred from taking the final shot.He finished 12 of 24 from the field and had four assists and four rebounds.The difference now is that hes shooting the ball better, Hornets coach Steve Clifford said. Hes really played at a very high level all year. Earlier in the year, he didnt shot the ball as well but he spent so much time working on it in the summer that I was confidence he would get it going.Gerald Henderson had 16 points for Charlotte and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added 13 points and 12 rebounds.Anthony Davis had 32 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks to lead the Pelicans, who fell below .500 for the first time since Dec. 14. Holiday had 16 points and nine assists.We battled, Davis said. Kemba was just Kemba. He hit some big shots down the stretch and won the game for them.The Pelicans built a double-digit lead in the third quarter before Henderson went on a tear, scoring eight of Charlottes next 10 points to pull the Hornets within three.We fell apart, Pelicans coach Monty Williams said. We didnt share the ball, which is what we have been talking about, especially down the stretch of games.The Hornets took the lead with nine minutes left on a pair of free throws by Roberts and would extend their lead to 90-82 when Walker hit two free throws with 4:12 left. But the advantage would quickly evaporate as New Orleans went on a 10-0 run behind Davis.___TIP-INSPelicans: Davis recorded his sixth double-double in the past seven games. ... The Pelicans fell to 6-13 on the road this season.Hornets: Kidd-Gilchrist has recorded a double-double in three of his last four games for the Hornets.WALKER JOINS CLUBWalker became the ninth player in Charlotte history to score 30 points in three straight games. Charlotte is 11-3 when Walker eclipses the 30-point plateau.UP NEXTPelicans: Host Memphis on Friday night.Hornets: Visit Toronto on Thursday night. Eddie Murray Jersey . Berdych and Stepanek played all five matches when the Czechs beat Spain 3-2 in the final last November in Prague to win the countrys first title as an independent nation. Jerry Coleman Angels Jersey . Olsen, who is 6-foot-3 and 305 pounds, can play either centre or guard. The 25-year-old Olsen played 16 games and made four starts in 2012 with the New Orleans Saints. .This one was bigger than most.Ben Roethlisberger and LeVeon Bell came up big in a game that Pittsburgh had to win Sunday, leading the Steelers to a 42-21 drubbing of the Cincinnati Bengals that left the AFC North race wide open.Lightning captain Steven Stamkos told reporters on Monday that he expects to play in Game 4 when Tampa Bay tries to come back from a 3-0 first-round series deficit against the Montreal Canadiens. Stamkos did not reveal any specifics on injuries of symptoms - if any - after briefly leaving Sundays game at the Bell Centre in the second period after being hit in the head by the knee of Alexei Emelin. With his team facing a win-or-were-out situation, Lightning head coach Jon Cooper kept things loose by joining in on the scrrum and holding a water bottle as a microphone - asking his star player how he felt. Dave Niehaus Angels Jersey. "Id like a little more ice time," Stamkos replied jokingly. Stamkos went down while battling with Brandon Prust and then started sliding down the ice when he came across Emelins knee. It connected with the back of Stamkos head and Stamkos immediately went down. He left the ice under his own power and returned to start the third period and finished the game. Stamkos had 25 goals in 37 games this season. ' ' '
