CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) _ Bobcats coach Paul Silas says he’s
encouraged by Kemba Walker’s progress since the rookie became the
team’s starting point guard last week.

Walker has started the last four games for the injured D.J.
Augustin and is coming off his best game as a professional _
registering a triple-double with 20 points, 11 assists and 10
rebounds against Washington Saturday. That’s a notable improvement
over his first three starts when he struggled with ball
distribution.

Silas says for the former Connecticut standout to record a
triple-double in just his 21st NBA game is “out of this world.”

Still, the Bobcats need a little more if they’re going to snap
an eight-game losing streak Tuesday night against the Los Angeles
Lakers in the first of four straight games on the road.
