Hornets top Nuggets 110-82 for third straight win

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Kemba Walker is beginning to emerge as the multifaceted point guard the Charlotte Hornets hoped he would become.

Walker is off to the best start of his four-year career, entering the week third in the NBA in assist-per-turnover ratio.

He did little to hurt those numbers on Monday night. Walker scored 18 points, handed out nine assists and committed just one turnover as the Hornets coasted to a 110-82 victory over the Denver Nuggets.
