Kemba Walker off to a flying start for Hornets

MIAMI (AP) There was a stretch last season spanning four games when Charlotte's Kemba Walker missed 16 consecutive attempts from 3-point range.

That seems unfathomable now.

Walker might have been the surprise of the NBA's first week by averaging 35.3 points per game, a big number fueled by making 19 shots from 3-point range - more than any player in the league has connected on in the first three games of a season. So in a year when Walker insists he won't be speaking about his looming free agency, his numbers are doing plenty of talking.
