Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2008-11-27

Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2008-11-27
The abrupt-but-not-surprising dismissal of coach Eddie Jordan gave way to the Ed Tapscott era. However, don't expect a long run with Tapscott at the helm.

Tapscott will be the interim coach, and in all likelihood this will be a one-and-done for Tapscott, who likely will head upstairs to a cushy front-office position at the end of the season.

Tapscott, a Washington native, has never coached at the NBA level -- his last stint as a coach was at American University -- and the Wizards will probably look to fill the slot with a coaching lifer in the off-season.

The Wizards will almost certainly place Celtics assistant Tom Thibodeau at the top of their list. Thibodeau almost joined the Wizards as an assistant at the start of last season but backed out of the job the morning he was supposed to join the team.

Thibodeau is best known as a hardcore defensive-minded coach. Last season he got much of the credit for the stifling defense that the Celtics employed on the way to winning the NBA championship.

Other names that are sure to come up in discussions are former Dallas coach Avery Johnson, Flip Saunders, most recently with Detroit, and Dwane Casey, an assistant in Dallas.

WIZARDS 124, WARRIORS 100: The Wizards ended a five-game skid in Ed Tapscott's coaching debut and earned their second win of the season at home against Golden State thanks to big games from three players. Caron Butler led the Wizards with 35 points and Antawn Jamison and Andray Blatche both had 25 as the Wizards throttled Golden State.
