This had all the makings of another painful loss for the Hornets.
Charlotte led by as many as 21 points, before the Knicks came all the way back to claim a one-point lead, courtesy of a three-pointer from Carmelo Anthony with 40 seconds left.
All New York had to do was get one stop to seal the victory, but Kemba Walker had other ideas.
With the clock winding down, Walker blew by his defender on the perimeter, and with no help defense anywhere in sight, he was able to get all the way to the basket to convert the game-winning shot just before time had expired.
The victory snapped the Hornets’ 10-game losing streak, and the Knicks fell to 4-17 on the season.
