Kemba Walker: Pushing for playoffs is "exciting"

Charlotte Bobcats point guard Kemba Walker admits that it is "exciting" to be in the playoff race.

Kemba Walker has said that being on the verge of securing a place in the NBA playoffs is "exciting".

The Charlotte Bobcats currently sit seventh in the Eastern Conference, five wins clear of the New York Knicks, who are the highest-placed side not currently in a playoff spot.

The point guard told reporters: "It's exciting. It's different. This is what I have been dreaming of my whole life. I've been waiting for this opportunity.

"If I'm not shooting the ball as well, I am still ending up with seven or eight assists. I feel like I'm still finding ways to impact the game. Learning how to play off Al [Jefferson] has been big, and knowing where he likes the basketball. And the others guys are making shots."

The Bobcats have reached the playoffs just once in their 10-season history, losing in the first round to the Orlando Magic in 2010.
