G Derek Fisher starts day after joining Mavericks
The 16-year veteran point guard was the first starter introduced against Detroit on Saturday night, a day after he joined the team and practiced for the first time.
The Mavericks added Fisher, a five-time NBA champion with the Los Angeles Lakers, because offseason addition Darren Collison was struggling before a sprained finger knocked him out of the lineup earlier in the week.
Dominique Jones started the previous two games for Dallas. Collison replaced Fisher midway through the first quarter.
