Fisher burns Jazz, puts Lakers on verge of sweep


By Andrew Aragon, for NBA.com

SALT LAKE CITY (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Utah Jazz's decision to release Derek Fisher three years ago never hurt them quite as badly as it did on Saturday night.

Fisher drained the go-ahead 3-pointer with 28.6 seconds left to lift the Los Angeles Lakers to a 111-110 win over the Utah Jazz, giving them a 3-0 lead in their Western Conference semifinal series. Game 4 is Monday.

Fisher took a pass from Bryant as Utah's defense collapsed on the superstar guard shortly after he executed a pick-and-roll with Pau Gasol. That left Fisher with an open look, and he made his third 3-pointer of the game to give L.A. the lead for good.

"That's what I live for," Fisher said. "It's always good when they go down and we win."

Fisher, who scored 20 points, acknowledged that it might not have been his role to take such an important shot. But it worked out just how the Lakers wanted.

"When we run screen-and-roll with Kobe (Bryant) and Pau (Gasol), it's tough to make a decision," he said. "I mean, the best player in the game is coming off a screen. Pau is in a handful of the best players in the world, setting the screen. So for the rest of us, it's our job to be ready to take an opportunity when it is there."

Fisher took advantage, and his former teammates were not shocked that he knocked the shot down. Fisher was granted his release from the Jazz following the 2007 season so that he could be in a place where medical treatment was more accessible for his infant daughter.

"He's done that his whole career," said Utah forward Carlos Boozer. "He's a playoff player."

Bryant said Fisher's shooting was just one way he impacted the Lakers' victory.

"His ball movement and spacing (were also big factors)," he said. "He knocks down big shot after big shot. That's just something he does."

The Jazz still had chances to win following Fisher's 3, but couldn't convert on them in what was a wildly entertaining game. Rookie Wesley Matthews attempted a 3-pointer with 10.8 seconds remaining and missed. Boozer collected the offensive rebound, but wasn't able to score on a putback.

Bryant, who scored 35 points on 13-for-24 shooting, sank two free throws to put the Lakers up, 111-108. The Lakers fouled Deron Williams on Utah's next possession and he made two foul shots.

After Kyle Korver stole the Lakers' ensuing in-bounds pass, the Jazz drew up a play for Williams during a timeout. He missed a 3-pointer with the clock ticking down, and Matthews missed a tip-in as time expired.

"I thought it was good," Matthews said. "I didn't know how much time was left on the clock, so it was a quick tip. I thought I got enough of the ball to put it in the hole."

The Jazz also looked to have enough of a lead in the first half to win Game 3 and make it a series with the Lakers. They held L.A. to 29.2 percent shooting in the first quarter and built a 13-point lead in the first half.

The Lakers, however, showed why they're the reigning champs by fighting their way back into the game. They cut that 13-point deficit to four before halftime. In the third quarter, Bryant capped an 8-0 run with a 3-pointer, giving the Lakers a 60-59 advantage. It was their first lead since 2-0.

"We had good looks and good opportunities and our shots fell at the right time," Bryant said.

The Lakers' outside shooting was phenomenal after the first quarter. They shot 13-for-29 from 3-point range and got a huge boost from Ron Artest. He made four 3-pointers and scored 20 points.

The Jazz, after getting clobbered inside by the Lakers in Games 1 and 2 of the series, packed their defense in the paint and begged L.A. to beat them from the outside. The Lakers obliged.

"They took away our post game, double-teaming and rotating," said Lakers coach Phil Jackson. "We didn't start out very well, but I thought we gained traction in the second quarter and continued through the rest of the game to play a much better game."

It was also the type of game these Lakers have grown accustomed to winning. It was close for much of the second half, and featured 22 lead changes and eight ties. L.A.'s ability to close it out may have just been a result of the been-there, done-that type of approach the champs seemed to play with down the stretch.

"That was quite a game," Jackson said. "It was fun for fans to watch. It wasn't great for coaches to watch. Unexpected guys (Artest and Fisher) stepped up tonight, guys we know can deliver."
