Posted: Feb. 1, 2007 Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash and Head Coach Mike D’Antoni were named the NBA Western Conference Player and Coach of the Month, respectively, after guiding the Suns to a franchise-record 15-1 record in January 2007, the NBA announced today. The Suns matched the best January record in NBA history, tying the 1962-63 Los Angeles Lakers and the 15 victories were the most in any calendar month in franchise history. During the month, Phoenix won a club-record 17 consecutive games from Dec. 29-Jan. 28, tied for the seventh longest single-season win streak in league history. The 2006-07 Suns became just the fifth team in NBA history to post two separate win streaks of 15 or more (15 and 17) in the same season and the first to do so before the All-Star break. Entering 2006-07, Phoenix had only one win streak longer than 12 games (14 from Dec. 1-30, 1992) in its first 38 seasons (since 1968-69).
