CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Kemba Walker loves a good challenge. So when Stephen Curry started lighting it up Monday night in his homecoming game, Walker decided it was time to match him. The other eight players might as well have been on the bench watching in the final few minutes, when Walker scored Charlottes final 15 points to lead the Bobcats to a 115-111 victory over Curry and the Golden State Warriors. Walker finished with 31 points -- 27 in the second half -- while battling neck and neck with Curry, who finished with a season-high 43 points, 32 of them coming in the second half including 19 in the final quarter. When it was suggested it was like watching a pair of heavyweight champions going at it, teammate Gerald Henderson looked over at his 6-foot-1, 184-pound teammate and cracked, "Well, maybe a featherweight championship fight." Walker just smiled and shook his head, perhaps too tired to fire back a witty volley after spending the night fighting through screens and chasing Curry around the court. "It is fun," Walker said of facing Curry. "Everybody knows hes a great player, a great scorer. I love to play against the best. He made some tough shots. I thought I played some good defence, but it was better offence at times. We came out with the win. Thats all I really care about at this point." Curry, a Charlotte native who burst on the national scene while playing at nearby Davidson College, said it was fun playing well in front of his family, including his father Dell, a former NBA player and now a broadcaster with the Bobcats. Even so, taking the loss was disappointing. "This one stings worse than it has stung in a while," Curry said. Curry was impressed with Walkers effort. "Hey man, the guy made big plays down the stretch," he said. "He got to the lane and made some tough shots. He kept them just ahead of us. Im sure that is what they expect him to do, and what he expects to do every night." The Warriors (12-11) never led, but tied the game at 88-all on a pair of free throws by Curry. But Ramon Sessions scored on a pair of drives and the seldom-used Ben Gordon knocked down a 3-pointer to quickly push the lead back to seven with 6:50 left in the game. Walker hit a 3-pointer and a fall away in the lane to help stretch the lead to 11. But Curry kept coming. He knocked down a 28-footer with Walkers hand in his face to cut the Bobcats lead to 111-109 with 11 seconds left. But the Warriors were forced to foul and Walker hit four free throws in the final 11 seconds to seal the victory. Henderson had 24 points and Josh McRoberts had 11 points and 10 rebounds for the Bobcats (10-11), who won their second straight game. Walker finished 10 of 18 from the field. "Kemba is A-1 competitor and that is a well-rounded game he played because he played tenacious, I dont care how many points (Curry) had," Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said. "... Some of Currys shots were just unguardable." Curry was 3 of 11 in the first half, but got hot late in the third quarter and finished 14 of 32 from the field against a Bobcats team that hadnt allowed 100 points in 13 straight games. He was only 5 of 16 from 3-point range, but was 10 of 12 from the free-throw line. Curry also had nine assists. The Warriors fell behind by 12 at the half after shooting 1 of 12 from 3-point range. Warriors coach Mark Jackson said before the game that Currys play has been "spectacular" this season. "Hes been playing at a whole different level," Jackson said. "Hes playing and acting like hes the best player on the floor night in and night out, carrying us down the stretch, making plays, choosing when to take over offensively and he knows when to facilitate." "You see his scoring and you fall in love with his jump shot. Hes a guy thats among the league leaders in assists also. Hes playing at a different level. Hes getting to the level of the baddest man on the planet. Its really fun to see. It takes everyone else to another level."

Spencer Abbott and Trevor Smith scored third-period goals erasing a 2-1 deficit giving Toronto a late 3-2 lead. However, Nick Drazneovic scored with 12.9 seconds remaining to force overtime and Andrew Ebbett scored the shootout winner as the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins edged the Marlies 4-3 on Sunday afternoon. "A lot of credit goes to our leadership group, the right things were being said in the dressing room and they emptied their tanks to get us that point," said Marlies coach Steve Spott. "Selfishly, youve got a five on six youd like to see us close out the game, but give Wilkes-Barre some credit, theyre a veteran hockey club and they found a way to get the extra point." Anton Zlobin and Scott Harrington had the other goals for the Penguins (32-20-5), who won for the fourth time in 12 games. With the win, the Penguins improved to 4-3-0 in their last seven against Toronto. Kenny Ryan had the other goal for the Marlies (34-19-5), who picked up three of a possible six points in a three-game, three day stretch over the weekend. "Three out of six points is OK, but were coming down the stretch here, every point is pretty important, we dont want a shootout loss to dictate our playoff standing," said Smith, who is battling a lower-back injury after being slew footed Friday in Lake Erie. "Were going to take it in stride here tonight, but letting goals in the last minute of play is unacceptable." Jeff Deslauriers made 31 saves in the win while Torontos Drew MacIntyre stopped 32 shots. With their goaltender pulled for an extra attacker, Drazenovic forced overtime by one timing an Ebbett feed past MacIntyre. Smith gave Toronto its first lead of the game going backhand, top corner on Deslauriers at 15:59 of the third. "I was looking to pass to Leivo actually, he was there, he opened up for a one-timer," Smith said. "Their d-man took it away and I was kind of all alone, was on the backhand so I just tried to take it a little bitt wider and go upstairs.dddddddddddd" Added Spott: "Goes to show you why hes a special player, but that was an NHL goal." Abbott evened it at 2-2 on a power play, beating a screened Deslauriers for his 14th of the season at 10:56 of the third. The goal stretches Abbotts point streak to three games. Zlobin gave the Penguins their second lead of the game at 18:24 of the second poking home a loose puck for his sixth of the season. Ryan tied it 1-1 at 3:16 shorthanded on a partial break, beating Deslauriers blocker-side from the top of the faceoff circle. The goal broke a five-game drought for Ryan. Jerry DAmigo extended his point streak to six games with his assist on the goal. Moments later, Ebbett nearly gave the Penguins their second lead of the game. But with MacIntyre down and out Ebbetts shot hit the post. The Marlies outshot the Penguins 12-4 at one point of the first period, but had nothing to show for it. Harrington opened the scoring at 17:59 of the first, beating MacIntyre from the faceoff dot. Smith, who spent 75 games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton last season, admitted to sharing tactical information with his Marlies teammates prior to puck drop. "There were a couple systems-wise things that I let the guys know," he said. "A little bit of special teams that they have the tendency to do all the time. A couple little things here and there that I tried to help us out." The two teams play for a second and final time April 13 at Wilkes-Barre, Pa. Torontos next game is Friday when the team visits Rochester. Notes: Marlies LW Jamie Devane missed the game serving a one-game suspension as a result of receiving an instigator penalty during the final five minutes of Saturdays 4-1 win over Lake Erie. Under rule 46.22 both the Marlies and coach Steve Spott were also fined US$500 each. Devane picked up four minor penalties, a major, a misconduct and a game misconduct for 33 minutes in penalties in the win. The suspension is Devanes second this season. He missed one game in November stemming from a boarding incident.
