Kemba Walker scored 29 points, pulled down 5 rebounds, dished out 5 assists, and did everything imaginable -- tack on 2 steals, 3 blocks, 4-7 shooting from 3-point range -- for the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday night.
But it wasn't enough.
Lebron James scored 31 points, and led the Miami Heat to a 109-98 win over the Bobcats, to finish off a four-game sweep.
Charlotte got 16 points off the bench from Gary Neal, and 14 more bench points from Chris Douglas-Roberts. Gerald Henderson and Josh McRoberts both were in double-figures as well, but Charlotte couldn't pull off a win.
Chris Bosh had 17 points to chip in for the Heat, while Dwyane Wade had 15.
Three of the four losses in the series were by double-figures.
The Bobcats officially become the Charlotte Hornets tomorrow.
