Tom Thibodeau, not P.J. Carlesimo, wins Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for January

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA announced today that Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau has won the Eastern Conference Coach of the Month award for the month of January. Thibodeau's Bulls went 12-4 on the month, pushing them to a 28-17 record overall.

Now, normally this wouldn't be posting on a Nets site, but seeing as P.J. Carlesimo was in the running to win this award, I figured it was worth noting. Especially since, well, Avery Johnson had won the award in November and was then fired less than a month later.

Carlesimo's Nets went 11-4 on the month, after starting January with seven straight wins, but have lost three of their last four games, with all three losses coming to playoff-bound teams and by double digits.

The Nets take on Thibodeau and the Bulls tonight at the Barclays Center.
