Thunder veteran Derek Fisher played his final regular season game in San Antonio on Wednesday night, a place where he has many memories.
And on his personal website, where he is blogging experiences from his final NBA season, Fisher shared some thoughts on his most memorable moment in the Alamo — the game-winning 0.4-second shot to beat the Spurs in the 2004 playoffs.
“Going into the timeout after Tim (Duncan)'s shot, my mind was racing,” Fisher wrote. “I was thinking to myself, ‘OK. We still have a chance to win this game. Something can happen.' But at the same time, I was super frustrated with how we even got ourselves into that position.
“But I didn't give up on the game. I still felt like something crazy could happen. So I was trying to focus in on what Phil Jackson was saying during the timeout. You just have to play the game until there are zeros on the clock. Obviously, I didn't know what was about to happen, but that's just always the way I played the game.”
