Throwback Thursday: Derek Fisher’s Clutch Performance In 2009 Finals

Derek Fisher has had some classic moments in Laker history, as he is well-known for his grit, toughness, and leadership. But perhaps more important than anything, he’s built a name in Lakers lore for his ability to knock down some big shots.

In the 2009 NBA Finals, he was back at it again, as the Lakers were looking to win their first NBA title since the 2001-2002 season. The Lakers had faced up against the Orlando Magic and were looking to take a 3-1 series lead in Game 4.

The Lakers got down by double-digits by the end of the first half, and forced themselves to have to fight back if they wanted to give themselves a chance to win. After they had battled back from a game-long deficit in the third and fourth quarter,  Fisher put on the finishing touches with his two crucial three-point field goals in the final minute of the 4th quarter and in overtime.

The savvy veteran had been 0-5 from beyond the arc prior to those big shots, showing that regardless of how bad he might have performed throughout the course of a game, he’ll still be able to show up when needed most.

Those big shots, would cement a huge victory that would give the Lakers a commanding 3-1 lead, essentially locking up the 2009 NBA championship.
