The miami heat also moved 3-1 up in their series against the new york knicks after a 109-101 win.

Jimmy butler led the way with 27 points and 10 assists for miami, who had five players in double digits, and the eighth seeds can clinch the series with a win on thursday (00:30 bst) in new york. 

The golden state, with stephen curry to the fore yet again, were 84-77 ahead going into the fourth quarter of their match in la.

But the introduction of 24-year-old walker, who has struggled to establish himself since joining the lakers on a one-year contract last year after battling a series of injuries, changed the game.

The Lakers went on to outscore their opponents 27-17 and walker was mobbed by LeBron James and other Lakers team-mates on the buzzer.
