Derek Fisher headbutted Steve Nash tonight in the face toward the end of the game. It was hard to tell if it was intentional but last year Fisher made a very dirty play when he headbutted Luis Scola of the Houston Rockets. Seems a little suspicious. Now it turns out that Nash’s nose is broken. Both plays happened in similar situations – at the end of games when the Lakers had already lost. The Lakers went on to win the series against the Rockets last year. True, Nash is tough but the point is that playing with a broken nose could hurt Nash and the Suns the rest of the series. Yes, last year’s incident was very blatant while this one appears to be an accident, but don’t let that fool you – you don’t guard another player’s face with your head like Fisher did.
