Lakers guard Derek Fisher may have missed several shots earlier, but when the Sportscenter cameras were rolling he nailed his one attempt from 33 feet.

Laker guard Derek Fisher proved his clutch talents again on Tuesday, as he nailed a 33-foot shot from a 3rd floor balcony atop L.A. Live's Nokia Plaza while Sportscenter's cameras rolled.

Fisher, actor David Arquette, and spokesclown Ronald McDonald were at the complex to film a promo for the Lakers 3 on 3 basketball tournament, coming to L.A. Live in August.

While the competition was going on, only Arquette put a shot through the basket. The Laker guard made one of his warm-up shots, but then missed a half-dozen or so while the cameras were rolling.

After Fisher and Arquette had filmed a commercial for the tournament and a pair of Sportscenter promos, they each took one more shot from the balcony as ESPN's cameras rolled. Fisher nailed his, prompting Arquette to exclaim that of course the guard made the one shot that really counted.

Ronald McDonald House is the tournament's official charity. The spokesclown had good form, but was unable to put one of his shots through the net.
