Butler buzzer-beater bags 76ers a win over Hornets

Ben Simmons was back to his best

The Philadelphia 76ers pulled a rabbit out of the hat courtesy of its newest addition Jimmy Butler.

The victory was the 76ers' second straight over the Hornets in overtime and third overall against Charlotte this season, games in which Walker has scored 37, 30 and 60 points.

Philadelphia did, in fact, bring in Butler to make plays in crunch time.

He blocked Walker's shot and saved the ball to a teammate with 15 seconds left, setting the stage for his winning jumper from the top of the key over Dwayne Bacon.

After recent blips, Simmons was back to his best on Sunday as he capped off his near triple-double performance with a thundering, rim-shaking put-back dunk off a Butler three point attempt.

Walker scored 58 points, going 20-for-29 shooting, through regulation to put up the most points of any National Basketball Association player this season.

Walker finished 21 of 34 from the field and had six 3-pointers.

Lamb recorded a 20-point, 10-rebound double-double, and Cody Zeller added 10 points for the Hornets, who were opening a three-game homestand. 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.

Hornets: Host the Boston Celtics on Monday night.
