Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra named NBA Coach of the Month for February

The NBA announced late last week that Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra was named the Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for games played in the month of February. It was really a no-brainer for the league to pick Spoelstra, who led the Heat to a league-best 11-2 record (win percentage of .846) and ended the month on an eight-game winning streak, with each win coming by at least twelve points.

The 11 wins and .846 winning percentage each rank second all-time for the Heat in the month of February. With three consecutive victories from Feb. 12-14 at Atlanta, Milwaukee and Indiana, the Heat became the first team to win road games on three straight nights since the Phoenix Suns in 1979.

It's nice to see Coach Spoelstra get some recognition for how well the Heat are playing this season. He won the Coach of the Month award once last season, for the month of December.
