Doc Rivers named Western Conference Coach of the Month

Amidst the annual Clippers' controversy, Doc Rivers still coached the Clippers to an 11-3 record in January and won Western Conference Coach of the Month.

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Call it an easy schedule, hot shooting, injury plagued opponents, or whatever you want, the Clippers had a fantastic January.  Regardless of how you interpret the streak or who you credit the wins to, the Clippers had a great record while missing arguably their most important player.  Even with the great play of the Spurs and Warriors, Doc Rivers has been awarded the Western Conference Coach of the Month while Dwane Casey has won it for the Eastern Conference.

Hopefully the team continues to play well and maintain their success, but an extremely difficult schedule is right around the corner.  Congratulations Doc, you definitely earned this one!
