Rick Carlisle named West coach of month

Coach Rick Carlisle was named Western Conference coach of the month after guiding the Mavericks to an NBA-best 11-1 record during February. Of those 12 games, the Mavs were on the road for nine of them, with the lone loss coming in a 121-120 loss to Denver.

It was the second time that Carlisle has been honored while with the Mavericks -- he also won in April 2010. It is the fourth time he's won overall.
