COACH OF THE MONTH in November, out of a job by New Year's. The Brooklyn Nets have elevated expectations this season, and a .500 record wasn't good enough. Coach Avery Johnson was fired Thursday, his team having lost 10 of 13 games after a strong start to its first season in Brooklyn. "We don't have the same fire now that we did when we were 11-4," general manager Billy King said at a news conference in East Rutherford, N.J. "I tried to talk to Avery about it, and we just can't figure it out. The same pattern kept on happening.

JayVaughn Pinkston was excited about getting a chance to play for his hometown Brooklyn Nets in the NBA Summer League, but his enthusiasm turned to sadness and frustration on the first day of practice in Orlando. The 6-foot-7 Pinkston, who finished 20th on Villanova's all-time scoring list during a career that ended in the NCAA tournament in March, suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee Wednesday. Although no prognosis has been made public, it is unlikely Pinkston will play any basketball in the 2015-16 season.

Elsewhere: Brook Lopez and Andray Blatche each scored 18 and the Brooklyn Nets won their third straight game with a 93-80 victory over the host Atlanta Hawks.

Ish Smith's tenure as the 76ers starting point guard lasted just one game. Completely over an upper respiratory infection, Isaiah Canaan moved back into the starting lineup Friday night against the Sacramento Kings at the Wells Fargo Center. "But what we've learned despite who's starting, they can co-exist," Brett Brown said of his preference to play the two together during certain stretches. "It did two games ago when it was a matchup thing with [the] Atlanta [Hawks]. And then we did it last game, because we were losing, and we needed to shake some things up. "I feel like I learned something with those two guards that they can play together.

MILWAUKEE -  The 76ers nabbed Thomas Robinson, the player the Brooklyn Nets coveted. The Sixers claimed the power forward off waivers Tuesday. To make room, they released Tim Frazier from his second 10-day contract. By acquiring Robinson, they blocked the Nets' bid to sign him to a 10-day deal. Robinson had been placed on waivers Sunday by the Denver Nuggets.  He agreed to play with Brooklyn on Monday, but had to clear waivers Tuesday evening before signing a contract. The Nets are upset over the Sixers' actions, according to multiple league sources.

TORONTO - The 76ers are saying Tony Wroten's return from a sprained right knee "is still a work in progress. " "He plays with such reckless abandon and that kamikaze-type of approach . . . that, especially with his style, you have to be careful," Sixers coach Brett Brown said before Wednesday's game against the Toronto Raptors at Air Canada Centre. "It's still being looked at and smarter people than me will come up with a decision really soon on what his best path is. " The reserve point guard missed the trip to Canada after spraining his right knee for the third time in less than two months.

BROOKLYN - In the Brooklyn Nets' three-game losing streak that they carried into Barclays Center against the 76ers last night, they averaged only 84.3 points, shot below 40 percent from the floor and 21 percent from the three-point line. So naturally they came out and made seven of their first nine shots and built a lead as big as 13 points. But if there is one thing this Sixers team can be relied on to do, it's battle. A wild, and oftentimes sloppy, fourth quarter went the way of the Sixers and they pulled out a 90-88 win over the slumping Nets when Nerlens Noel took a pass from Michael Carter-Williams with 3.2 seconds left and registered an uncontested slam as the Sixers won for the second time in three games to improve to 6-29.

Player development is a huge part of the 76ers' rebuilding plan. Coach Brett Brown was one of the NBA's first player-development instructors when he got his start with the San Antonio Spurs in 1999. He and Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie hired assistant coaches with player-development backgrounds and they have been putting in time with the players before and after practices. But at 5-29, the Sixers remain hard to watch at times. It's not uncommon for them to shoot several air balls or have a shot clank off the side of the backboard during games.

MIAMI - The 76ers' honeymoon with Andrei Kirilenko is over. After showing patience for two weeks, the Sixers are asking him to report and start playing games. The Sixers were expected to waive the forward shortly after they acquired him in a trade with the Brooklyn Nets on Dec. 11. But a team source said the team wants to keep the 6-foot-9, 235-pounder for now and see where things go. His playing would raise his trade value if they wanted to swap him for another asset at the trade deadline in February.
