Derek Fisher

Derek Fisher, a 6-1 point guard in his 13th season out of Arkansas Little Rock, is having a subpar shooting performance in the playoffs (35.6% from the field, 23.5% from three-point range) but has a penchant for hitting big shots early and late in games. Unlike earlier series this postseason, he won't be chasing around younger, more athletic or quicker point guards unless Jameer Nelson is up to speed upon making a return to the lineup after a four-month layoff. Postseason averages: 7.1 points, 1.8 rebounds, 2.4 assists Regular-season averages: 9.9 points, 2.3 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.16 steals
