Rookie head coach Dave Joeger has been named Coach of the Month for the Grizzlies performance in the first half of April.
This is his second honor this season after being named Coach of the Month for January. The Grizzlies were 6-2 in April and undefeated at home. The Grizzlies won their last five games when their playoff lives were on the line. The victories included wins over defending NBA champion Miami, Phoenix and Dallas.
“It’s a nice honor. To get 50 wins and the 7th seed and to come back from where we were makes me real proud” said Coach Joerger.
Coach Joerger is preparing the team for their 4th straight playoff appearance. The first game will be Saturday night at 8:30 Memphis time in Oklahoma City.
