Lakers' point guard Derek Fisher is trying to remain cautious about the team's hot start to the season.
Fisher remembers that the 2001-02 Lakers started the season with a 16-1 record, but stumbled to finish 58-24.
"As quickly as you can win 12 out of 13 or be 16-1, you go through a stretch where things get away from you," Fisher said. "It seems like things snowball from there and all the bad stuff comes out from under the rug.
"What I do remember most from that (2001-02) team was that we completed the end mission, which was to win a title. No matter how you start, it's how you finish that matters."
