Derek Fisher is in the clutch business and in Game 3, business was booming! Each time the Celtics threatened the Lakers lead down the stretch, Fisher answered the call and refused to let the C’s back in the game finishing with 16 key points to secure a 91-84 LA win. Since the 2-3-2 finals format began 10 years ago, there have been 10 occasions when teams entered Game 3 even Steve.
Each time the team that won Game 3 with the series even, ended up winning the title. Which made Fisher’s latest clutch performance rather large. After the game, D-Fish got emotional reflecting on his latest heroics which is totally okay, because I’d cry if people thought I was dead while still appearing on national TV every other night too.
