Check out the clip below via the Hornets’ Instagram account. As Walker made his way to the locker room, fans chanted MVP over and over again.

In a post-game interview, Kemba Walker was asked what got into him in the past two games. He admitted that he’s just playing basketball and is trying his best to win. He also commended his teammates and the coaching staff for putting him in the perfect position to score.
"I'm staying as ready as possible for these kind of moments."

Hornets head coach James Borrego, who spent 10 years with the San Antonio Spurs as Gregg Popovich’s assistant, has employed a faster style of play and a higher volume of attempts from downtown. For Walker, Borrego has given the point guard more room to operate.
Kemba Walker is off to his best start in his NBA career. He also became the sixth player to follow up a 60-point performance with a 40-point game.
