New York Post does Q&A with Greg Anthony
Q: How much of this Nets’ turnaround is because of the coaching change?
A: P.J. Carlesimo’s personality has just matched up better with this group. And now they know who they are, how they win games. ... I would also factor in that Deron Williams is playing exponentially better than he was at the start of the season for whatever reason: Injuries, not on the same page with Avery (Johnson).
Q: Is Mikhail Prokhorov’s goal of reaching the conference final attainable?
A: A lot of things have to go right, but they absolutely can. They are more built for the postseason than they are the regular season. They are a big team, but not an overly athletic team. They will go up in transition from time to time, but they’re at their best when they are playing five-on-five. The postseason is played that way.
