Derek Fisher made his debut for the Thunder against the Clippers. Houston cut Fisher after trading for him and he signed with Oklahoma City. The home crowd gave him a nice ovation - then it was game-on.

But OKC would not really need the veteran’s help on this night. The team’s young guns had more than enough power - James Harden with the steal and dunk - OKC up 6. The second quarter was the difference-maker. The Thunder would outscore the Clippers 33-20 - guard Russell Westbrook finished with 19.

Forward Kevin Durant would end up with 32 points on the night - Oklahoma City took a 16 point lead into the half. Not many highlights from the Clippers, but at least they lived up to their Lob City nickname. DeAndre Jordan finishes the alley-oop.

Then Fisher took the floor. He would get into the act from long-distance nailing the triple. The ex-Lakers’ vet had 5 points for his new club. The Thunder win it, 114-96, over the Clippers.
