PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts has been named NBA Western Conference coach of the month for February, the league announced Tuesday.

Portland had a 9-2 record in February, which was the third best record in the NBA for the month. It's also the third best February record in franchise history.

Out of Portland’s nine victories in February, seven came against teams at or above a .500 winning percentage on the day of the game. The Trail Blazers won a season-best six consecutive games from Feb. 6 to Feb. 23.

With a 111-102 win at Indiana on Feb. 28, Portland also became the fifth team in the NBA this season to win at least five consecutive games on the road.

This is the third time Stotts has received coach of the month honors, tying Rick Adelman and Nate McMillan for the most by a Trail Blazers head coach. He previously won the award in December 2014 and November 2013.

Stotts joins Adelman, McMillan, Mike Dunleavy, Jack Ramsay and Mike Schuler as Portland coaches who’ve won the award.
