The Dallas Mavericks lost their third straight game on Wednesday night to the Chicago Bulls in blowout fashion.

That loss, coupled with the struggles at the point guard position, has prompted the Mavs to go out and sign 17-year veteran Derek Fisher.

Head coach Rick Carlisle hopes Fisher can help fix the point guard problems.

"Right now, the point guard position is a challenge for us," Carlisle said Wednesday. "I think Derek can help us."

Dominique Jones made just his third career start on Wednesday night. Starting point guard Darren Collison has a finger issue, and he came off the bench against the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night. It is unclear at this point who Carlisle will go with as the starting point guard from here on out.

Dallas had to release a player to make room for Fisher, and they did so by releasing Troy Murphy.
