The Orlando Magic’s Stan Van Gundy [was] named the NBA Eastern [Conference Coach] of the Month, respectively, for games played in April.

Van Gundy led Orlando to an NBA-best 7-1 (.875) record in April, including wins over Cleveland and Dallas. Orlando outscored its opponents by over 12 ppg in April, while shooting .517 from the field. Orlando secured the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference and finished the season with the NBA’s second-best overall record – the Magic’s 59 wins trailed only the Cavaliers’ 61.

Knowing Stan, he'd probably downplay it as much as possible. Hah.

Would love to hear SVG's reaction to winning this award. Especially in the month with the least amount of games. His quote on the Amway Arena was classic!
