Kemba Walker hit 9-of-19 shots and 4-of-11 3-pointers for 23 points, seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block with five turnovers in 34 minutes of Thursday's 106-101 Game 2 loss to the Heat to fall into a 2-0 hole in the ECF.
Walker went off in the first half and then kind of disappeared after the break when the Heat implemented a zone, stopped Kemba and won the third quarter 37-17 to overcome a 17-point deficit and get the win. Walker wasn't very good in Game 1 (6-of-19 shooting) and looked a lot better tonight, but the Celtics couldn't get it done down the stretch. Walker is going to have to play at a high level the rest of the way if the Celtics are going to come back and win this series. Sep 17 9:57 pm (EST)
