Monty Williams played a major role in transforming the Phoenix Suns into an elite NBA team since taking the head coaching job in 2019. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, his success was rewarded with a second consecutive the National Basketball Coaches Association’s Coach of the Year award.
This season the Suns were by far the best team in the NBA. Last year’s NBA finalists booked the first seed in the Western Conference well before the end of the regular season.
Phoenix won 64 games and lost just 18 games for the best record in the league. The Suns are yet to find out who their opponents will be in the playoffs.
