Mr. Clutch Fisher

June 12, 2009

Everybody knows what Kobe Bryant is all about, but the player that is most overlooked on the Lakers is seasoned veteran, Derek Fisher.  Fisher has won all three rings with Kobe Bryant, and throughout their years of success, Derek Fisher has always come up when the Lakers needed him most.  Tonight was another perfect example, as Fisher tied up the game at 3 with 4 seconds left to send the game to overtime.  Fisher then hit another huge 3 pointer in overtime to put the finishing touches on the Magic.  The Lakers now take a commanding 3-1 game lead, and the Magic are dismantled.  Orlando had this game in the bag, and the Lakers wanted it more.  Kobe had 32 points, 7 rebounds, and 8 assists, Gasol added a double double, Mr Clutch (Derek Fisher) hit timely 3s down the stretch, and the unsung hero of the game was Trevor Ariza.  The Lakers were down 12 at half, and Ariza was held scoreless until a 16 point explosion in the third quarter.

Kobe will finally get that ever so coveted fourth ring after the Lakers take care of business on Sunday in Orlando.  I originally predicted Lakers in 6, but there is a great chance of the Magic getting blown out in game 5.
