The three-time All-Star played eight NBA seasons in Charlotte and is the franchise's all-time leading scorer. He signed with the Celtics this past offseason after Hornets owner Michael Jordan elected not to pay Walker a five-year, $221 million supermax contract.

But he left on good terms with the organization and its fans and said before the game he was expecting a warm response.

''I have always interacted with fans, always signed autographs and always took pictures,'' Walker said after shootaround. ''I was always nice to everybody, so I don't think there should be any negative reactions.''

Miles Bridges had 18 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Hornets, who had their three-game win streak snapped. Charlotte was just 6 of 31 from 3-point range.
