Eight former Jazz players that still have something to play for

Derek Fisher Next » 3 of 8 « Prev
Current team: Oklahoma City Thunder

Years with the Jazz: 2006-07

2012-13 stats: 4.1 ppg, 33 FG%, 14.4 mpg in 24 games played

Playoff prognosis: Fisher has been mostly a "locker room influence" for two years now, one the young-and-upcoming Thunder appear to appreciate. Despite his career-worst shooting year, his reputation is sure to have opposing defenses at least respecting him when he's on the floor.

At least, that's what should happen. Houston, it turns out, has a short memory. That's the only explanation for allowing the normally bench-riding Fisher to make three 3-pointers in Game 1, a nine-points-in-12-minutes bonus for a Thunder team that is loaded with firepower to begin with.

Performances like Sunday's used to be a playoff staple for Fisher. That probably won't be the case this postseason, but don't be shocked if he turns in at least one flashback per series.
