The NBA announced that Terry Stotts won the Western Conference Coach of The Month award on Monday morning after the Blazers finished the month of November with a 13-3 record.

In the Eastern Conference, it was his coaching counterpart in tonight’s game against the Indiana Pacers, Frank Vogel who took home the award for November.

Stotts took a team that lost the last 13 games of last season, with a revamped bench and new defensive philosophy, to 13 wins in November and the team is currently first in the West.

The month of November also included the Blazers 11-game winning streak which is tied for the longest winning streak by a team this season.
