Kidd helped lead Dallas to a 16-5 record during this period, which included wins against Golden State, Utah, Boston, Brooklyn and Milwaukee.
The Mavericks (52-30) finished the regular season of the NBA 2021-2022 with the fifth best record in the league and the biggest playoff favorite in the Western Conference of the franchise (No. 4) since reaching No. 3 during the team’s championship season in 2011.
Kidd is now the first Dallas coach to win this award since Rick Carlisle won it in February 2011.
The Mavs finished the regular season 2021-2022 allowing the second-lowest number of NBA points (104.7 PPG). This is the first time in franchise history that Mavs finish better than quarters in allowed points.
When the Mavs begin their playoffs Saturday at noon against the Utah Jazz, Kidd will face head coach Quin Snyder, who has been with the Jazz since the 2014-2015 season.
