Nicolas Batum had 16 points and seven assists, and Charlotte outscored Minnesota 36-17 in the third quarter to wipe out a 12-point halftime deficit.It was perfect timing, and we needed it, Walker said of Cliffords speech.

That bothers me.Wiggins rallied the Wolves in the fourth, giving them a 92-91 lead with a 3-pointer.

Were making mistakes that never should be made.WALKERS BACKA scary moment happened at the end of the first quarter when Walker, who scored 12 points on 6-for-7 shooting in the period, went to the locker room. The team said his back tightened up and he went back to get stretched out.Walker was able to return to the game midway through the second quarter and played the rest of the game with no visible issues.My training staff, theyre the best, Walker said. They did a great job at looking out for me when I came out the game with the heat pack, good massages, things like that.

The sophomore is the Wildcats leading returning scorer and rebounder at 9.6 points and 5.3 rebounds per game last season; F Derek Willis.
