Celtics head coach Brad Stevens has been named the NBA’s Eastern Conference Coach of the Month, the NBA announced on Tuesday.

The 39-year-old third-year coach led the C’s to a conference-best 9-3 record during the month of February, which included a flawless 6-0 record at TD Garden. The Celtics currently hold the third-best mark in the East, two games ahead of the fourth-place Miami Heat, and lead the conference with 106 points per game.

Brad Stevens will go head-to-head with Western Conference Coach of the Month, Terry Scott, and the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night in Boston, where Celtics will look to continue their 11-game winning streak at TD Garden.
