5- Derek Fisher Game Winning Shot Versus Mavericks, 2012

In his final season with the Los Angeles Lakers, Derek Fisher came up big when the team faced off with the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavs knocked out Fisher and the Lakers in the 2011 NBA Playoffs, so taking home a victory at Staples was a must for Los Angeles.

The game was a low scoring affair and it was frankly sub-par basketball. However, the match came down to the wire and the Lakers were knotted up at 70 with the Mavs with a few seconds left to play. Once again, Kobe Bryant dished the ball to his wing-man and the rest was history. If Fisher does not return to the Lakers, this can be considered his last game-winning shot for the team.
