Reporting from Oklahoma City -- Kobe Bryant rings up the stats that crawl across the cable-TV tickers all night long, Pau Gasol has been a triple-double threat lately, and Lamar Odom has been scoring and rebounding with abandon.

It doesn't leave much room in the box score for Derek Fisher, but he still manages to get in his points.

"I try to, man," he said, smiling.

Fisher has been on a late-game roll, adding a pair of jump shots Tuesday that helped the Lakers turn a wobbly lead into a 107-93 victory over Oklahoma City.

Bryant had 15 points in the fourth quarter alone, but Fisher hit from 22 feet and then from 19 feet under a minute later to turn a seven-point edge into a 100-89 lead with 2:44 to play.

"By that point in the game, Kobe and Pau and Lamar had killed them so much, that they had to leave somebody open," said Fisher, who finished with 12 points. "I've been the beneficiary of some good ball movement and those three guys have just been phenomenal, so somebody has to be open and it's been me a few times lately."

Plus Derek uses rotation in the triangle better than anyone on the team.

This offense is custom made for a guy like Fisher on the perimeter.

Fish has been spectacular this season.
