Following Gordon Hayward's horrific injury five minutes into the 2017-18 campaign and suffering back-to-back losses to open the season, Brad Stevens has led the Celtics to the top of the standings with a 16-game win streak.
On Friday Brad Stevens was awarded Eastern Conferance's Coach of the Month honors, after the Celtics finished with the NBA's best record of 19-4 for October/November (including going 16-0 from Oct. 20 - Nov. 22) the fourth longest win streak in franchise history.
Boston also went 14-2 last month, tying the team's record for the most wins in November (last achieved during the 2008-09 season).
