The big news was with the win, the Knicks are going to the playoffs for the first time since 2004. But don't ignore the spectacular play by Walker.
With a nine-point lead in the fourth quarter, Anthony Carter caught a pass and immediately saw Walker cutting to the basket. Carter spiked a bounce pass right to him under the basket.
Walker took care of the rest.
He has been struggling with knee problems, but don't tell that to Samardo Samuels.
Walker was a teammate of O.J. Mayo in high school and that Division III team dominated the Ohio circuit.
At the time Walker was just as productive as Mayo and both players seemed destined for greatness.
Now, Mayo is known for taking a banned substance and Walker is struggling to play more than 10-13 minutes a game.
But if last night was a indication of things to come, Knick fans should be excited about his performance last night.
In only 13 minutes of action, Walker went 4-of-5 from the floor in route to 13 points and four rebounds.
Don't forget that he is only 23 and has plenty of potential left in the tank. Walker could be an unheralded X-factor come playoff time for the Knicks.
He is an efficient shooter that is a good fit in the up-tempo style of play the Knicks prefer to run.
Regardless of whether he is or he isn't...breath easy Knick fans, welcome back to the playoffs.
