In a recent statement, Milwaukee Bucks head coach Doc Rivers made his choice clear for Coach of the Year this season, endorsing Oklahoma City Thunder’s head coach Mark Daigneault for the prestigious title.

Rivers expressed his confidence in Daigneault’s coaching prowess, highlighting the remarkable achievements of the Thunder under his guidance. “Easy for me on that one,” Rivers said, per Joe Mussatto.

Despite facing formidable opponents, Daigneault has led the Thunder to the top of the conference.

Throughout the current season, Daigneault has orchestrated the Thunder’s ascent to the upper echelons of the Western Conference standings. With just one regular-season game remaining, OKC’s 56-25 record reflects Daigneault’s adept management and the team’s cohesive execution on the court.

As the regular season draws to a close, Daigneault’s leadership has positioned the Thunder as a formidable contender heading into the playoffs.

With aspirations of securing the top seed in the Western Conference, Daigneault and the Thunder are poised to make a significant impact in the postseason.
