Boston Celtics fans have gotten used to seeing superstar point guard Kemba Walker score with his awesome step back move that often leaves opposing players looking silly.
Well, it sounds like the move is as hard to stop as it looks.
Walker used his famous step back to score a clutch basket late in the Celtics' Game 2 win over the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday night. He drove to the basket against Raptors forward Serge Ibaka, then stopped on a dime, stepped back and hit a jumper to give Boston a 102-99 lead with less than a minute to play.
Check out the play in the video below:

Portland Trail Blazers star CJ McCollum took to Twitter to give his take on Walker's impressive step back move.
Kemba step back to freedom unstoppable. That speed and break combination elite.— CJ McCollum (@CJMcCollum) September 2, 2020
Walker started out cold from the field in Game 2. He opened the game shooting 0-of-6 from the floor, but it's not how you start that's important, it's how you finish. Walker scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half, and 11 of those came in the fourth quarter when Boston outscored Toronto 32-21 to secure the win.
The Celtics will try to take a commanding 3-0 series lead with a Game 3 win on Thursday night.
