That was the ugliest game of the season but at least we got the W.

Any sort of win, whether it's considered ugly or not, against the defending world champions is great.

As I stated earlier, Derek Fisher could have shot faked and stepped in a few feet for a closer look.

Those are the exact same shots Fisher takes during the rest of the game, and that's one reason why he shoots a very low percentage.

Dallas forced Kobe to give the ball up early in the clock. Dirk got to Fisher late, but if you give him one more second, he blocks Derek's shot.

Not only that, but Fisher cannot come off the dribble to hit a game-winner. Maybe Ron, but not Fish. He's most effective drilling his shot where he receives the pass, not making any moves away from the spot, not putting the ball on the floor.

Plus, if Fish misses that jumper, Dallas would have had LESS than three seconds left on the clock. Threes cause long boards, most of the time, and you're looking at under two seconds to get a shot off against a team that won't give up the paint or elbow in a game-winning situation.

Well said, I think it can go either way really. Regardless of how often he makes pull up jumpers, I still see it being high percentage in crunch time.

Agreed with what you said though.
