Utah Jazz head coach Quin Snyder was named the Western Conference Coach of the Month on Tuesday. This is the second consecutive month that Snyder has been named the coach of the month. The following excerpt is from the official NBA press release:
"The Jazz were had an NBA-best 12-2 record in February, outscoring their opponents by an average of 13 points per game over that span."
Utah's record is especially impressive considering the level of competition they faced in February. The Jazz faced playoff teams like the Celtics, the Bucks, the Heat (x2), The Clippers (x2), the 76ers, and the Lakers.
“Quin is one of the best in the league,” New Orleans Pelicans coach Stan Van Gundy said this week. “You’ve got to give him a lot of credit. He’s been a great coach for seven years, but what he’s done transforming this team, he’s done an outstanding job.”
"Orlando Magic head coach Steve Clifford called Snyder one of the elite coaches in the league today."
“He’s one of the elite coaches to me,” Magic head coach Steve Clifford said recently. “You watch them play and they’re disciplined, they know what their game is, and they stay with it. I would say they’re the most balanced team in the NBA.”
