Butler buzzer-beater bags 76ers a win over Hornets

Per Elias Sports Bureau, the 28-year-old American guard became the first player in National Basketball Association history with 7 or less points in the match before a 60-point night! Take a look at the grades from tonight's tough loss down below. That flat start appeared to have second-half ramifications. Embiid has dealt with foot and knee injuries that cut into his time on the floor during his first two professional seasons, but the All-Star did play in 63 regular-season games during the 2017-18 campaign.

It wasn't the best night for Willy Hernangomez, who scored just one point in 12 minutes of action. Still, the Sixers wouldn't have carved out the win especially with Walker going berserk with a career-high 60 points.

Along with his game-winner, he also blocked Walker's shot on a drive with 15 seconds left, then saved the ball from going out of bounds. "Sixty points in an National Basketball Association game against a pretty good defensive team is a remarkable effort". He was forcing shots and just couldn't get comfortable, shooting 0-5 from the floor. Giving Charlotte it's first ever-present National Basketball Association star would be a great way to build faith back into the team while at the same time giving the fans hope that change is in fact on the way.

Butler's heroics overshadowed a blockbuster performance from Charlotte's Kemba Walker, who exploded for a franchise record 60 points on an efficient 34 shots and while Simmons himself finished with 23 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, he admitted they hand their hands full today. "We try double teaming him, we tried hard-hedging him and the reality of it is, is that you have Joel (Embiid) and Jimmy (Butler) in that situation a lot and he is doing that against two all-league defensive players".

Cody Zeller was having a pretty solid game up until the overtime period, where he missed some key shots in the paint close to the basket.
