Walker scores 31, Hornets beat struggling Suns 120-106

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Charlotte Hornets appear to playing their best basketball of the season heading down the homestretch.

The big question will be whether it's a case of too little, too late.

Kemba Walker had 31 points and nine assists, and the Hornets beat the Suns 120-106 on Sunday for their fourth victory in the last five games. The only loss during that stretch came on a close defeat Saturday night to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
