Walker's Shooting Percentage Skyrockets With Napier At PG
Kemba Walker’s freshman supporting cast has grown up, pushed and prodded there by Calhoun. In 30 regular-season games, Jeremy Lamb averaged 9.6 points per game. In 10 in the postseason, he's at 15.6.
Calhoun's tenuous faith in reserve point guard Shabazz Napier -- "For every minute he plays, I age two years," Calhoun joked -- and Napier's improved production has in turn made Walker a better player.
When Napier is in the game and handling the ball, Walker shoots 48 percent from the floor. When he's not, Walker hits only 32 percent.
