SALT LAKE CITY — After leading the Utah Jazz to a 15-5 record to start the season, the NBA named Quin Snyder the Western Conference Coach of the Month for games played in December and January.

Before falling to Denver on Sunday, the Jazz were riding an 11-game winning streak, the longest of Snyder's tenure with the team.

During the month of January, the Jazz set a record for most three-pointers made by a team in one calendar month. Utah currently leads the league in 3-point attempts (42.5) and makes per game (17).

Snyder previously won Coach of the Month honors during the 2017-18 season.
