D-Fish on J-Kidd

Two of the NBA’s elder statesmen, Derek Fisher and Jason Kidd, will square off when the Lakers and the Dallas Mavericks meet in Game 1 of their second-round series Monday night at Staples Center. Here’s what Fisher said of Kidd: “Jason makes them go. He impacts games without scoring. … So, even though you don’t strategize for him offensively, you still have to plan for him. You have to play him like an impact player because he still impacts the game.” Fisher, 36, averaged 9.3 points, 2.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists in the Lakers’ first-round victory over the New Orleans Hornets. Kidd, 38, averaged 11.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 6.5 assists during the Mavericks’ victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.
