Rookie Derek Fisher (21pts/4asts/2 Dunks) vs. Mavericks (1997)

Rookie Derek Fisher gets his first start in the NBA as Nick Van Exel sits the contest out due to a sore knee. By the end of the game, Van Exel was up on his feet and celebrating every play made by Fisher who slammed home two dunks, inexplicably got three huge offensive rebounds and led the Lakers to a tough victory against Dallas in what would be his career-high for almost the next four years. April 6, 1997.
