The Bucks’ Mike Budenholzer was named Coach of the Year at NBA’s annual awards show on Monday.
The former Hawks coach was hired last summer and guided Milwaukee to the league’s best record. The Bucks became an offensive juggernaut under his watch, scoring a league-best 118.1 points per game.
The Nuggets’ Michael Malone and Clippers’ Doc Rivers were the other finalists.
Budenholzer was also named Coach of the Year in 2015 with Atlanta. He was also Hoops Rumors’ consensus choice this year.
