The Milwaukee Bucks are the hottest team in the NBA. Winners of 16 straight, the Bucks have their sights set on an NBA championship. Because of the win streak and how well the team is playing, head coach Mike Budenholzer was named the Eastern Conference Coach of the Month.
10-0. Undefeated in February.

Mike Budenholzer Wins Coach Of The Month
The Bucks were a perfect 10-0 in the month of February. The team is playing as well as anyone right now. While Giannis Antetokounmpo is a huge reason for the winning, the coaching of Budenholzer has been a big part of the winning streak as well. Giannis has missed games leading to lineup changes. The trade deadline has brought in new pieces. Young players are getting good reps. It is a coaching masterpiece and the recognition is well deserved.

The Bucks Are Rounding Into Form
This is the time of the year when you want to be playing your best. Securing home-court advantage throughout the playoffs would be huge but regardless, this team is gelling at the right time. Everyone seems to know their role and they play it to perfection. The defense is the best in the league and has gotten even better during this winning streak. There were some rocky moments earlier in the season but the Bucks have righted the ship and look poised for a deep run.
If the Bucks keep this up, Mike Budenholzer could win Coach of the Month again easily. The regular season is coming to a close. All that is left is securing the top seed and then the work begins on chasing another championship.
