Off the court
Thunder: : With Oklahoma City off to an NBA-worst 1-12 start, P.J. Carlesimo was fired as coach and replaced on an interim basis by assistant Scott Brooks. The firing followed a 105-80 defeat to the Hornets on Friday night for the Thunder's 10th straight loss. That loss dropped Carlesimo's record with the franchise to 21-74 in just more than one season. The Thunder also fired assistant Paul Westhead, the former NBA coach who guided the Phoenix Mercury to the 2007 WNBA title. Brooks, an 11-year NBA veteran, will remain in charge for the season.
