Jim Mancari, SNYNets.comP.J. Carlesimo is off to a 3-1 start as interim head coach of the Nets, including an improbable win against the NBA?s top team in the Oklahoma City Thunder. He'll look to make it 4-1 tonight when the Nets visit the Washington Wizards.
For Carlesimo, the win might have been a bit sweeter, since he was the first coach in the Thunder?s history. However, his tenure lasted only 13 games as he was fired after a 1-12 start.
