Jun. 09, 2010 - Boston, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES - epa02194204 Los Angeles Lakers player Derek Fisher during press conference the day after game three of the NBA Finals at TD Gardens in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, 09 June 2010. The Los Angeles Lakers lead the series at 2-1 for the best of seven games.

Down goes Fisher! Down go the Bobcats! Last night the Lakers finally overcame the cat calling to beat their bogey team Charlotte 92-84 at STAPLES. The 44-19 Lake Show won their sixth straight behind Kobe's 27 in three quarters, Pau's 20 and 9 points, 17 rebounds and 6 blocks from frontcourt machine Andrew Bynum. Still, what got most of the Lakers fans out their seats was the injury to top, Point Guard and postseason owner, Derek Fisher. Just when the Lakers really need him the star went down with an elbow injury. Former Laker Kwame Brown yanked hard on Fish's elbow battling for a rebound and the Charlotte centre heard about it from the crowd. Just like old times huh? Fisher is listed as day-to-day but L.A. are confident he will be ready to go. "He's strong as an ox. He's got enough strength to probably hold it together," Phil Jackson testified to the warriors strength. Los Angeles are in the injury wars right now, swinging bench player Matt Barnes who recently returned from injury has aggravated his knee, while real rookie Devin Ebanks is expected to miss three weeks with a stress fracture in his left tibia. Even though the Lakers said they wouldn't do like Miami (Mike Bibby) and Boston (Troy Murphy) in signing another player maybe it's time they gave Carlos Arroyo a call. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
