Derek Fisher mania
What has gotten into the 17-year veteran? He can’t miss a shot. On Tuesday, Fisher went 4-of-5 from deep, upping his incredible playoff clip to 19-of-31 overall from downtown. That’s 61.2 percent overall. Nobody with 20 or more attempts this postseason is even shooting 50 percent. And with his final three in Game 2, Fisher moved into sole possession of fourth on the all-time playoff list (258 threes), trailing only Kobe, Reggie Miller and Ray Allen. Pretty good company.
Stats of note
-Memphis had 16 offensive rebounds. And they were all killer.
-The Thunder had 19 turnovers. Memphis only had 10.
-At one point, after starting 0-of-4, Serge Ibaka was 1-of-14 in the series. But he hit five of his final eight, looking more comfortable.
-Kendrick Perkins has 18 points, 19 turnovers and 29 fouls in the postseason. Now I’m interested: Will he finish with more points or turnovers in this postseason run?
An extended three-day rest awaits OKC and Memphis before they meet for Game 3 in the Grizzlies’ house on Saturday at 4 p.m.
