This was one of the greatest finishes to a basketball game I have ever seen. Moments after Tim Duncan hit the first game winning shot for the Spurs I kept the faith. I believed that the Lakers could do it. The Lakers blew a 16 point game and now the most important half a second in the season was about to go down. While Shaq and Kobe were tightly guarded, Derek Fisher slipped free, caught the inbound pass, and nailed the basket. Game. 3-2 series lead for the mighty Lakers. They can now finish the series Saturday night in LA.
Derek Fisher only had eight points, but he’s responsible for leading the Lakers to a crucial road victory. AP
