Watch Kemba Walker detonate a 38-point bomb on the Lakers

Kemba can really score.

The Los Angeles Lakers had no answer for Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker on Monday night. The 25-year-old was a monster from just about everywhere on the court, scoring at the rim, in the paint, at the elbows and behind the three-point line. 

He finished with 38 points—about 20 more than his season average and one fewer than his season high—on just 25 shots; it was glorious:

Walker wasn't even Charlotte's best player early on in this one. Nicolas Batum roasted the Lakers from the post and kept creating matchup problems that weren't solvable. 

Congrats to Walker, even if it feels like everybody's torching the Lakers this year.
