The NBA is recognizing the work being done down in Memphis, TN.

The Joergermeister has now won the Western Conference Coach of the Month for the 3rd time since taking over as head coach for the Memphis Grizzlies last season. In case you weren't counting, that's THREE awards out of the total SEVEN months that Joerger's been eligible for the nod.

Awards don't make or necessarily represent a good coach, but the results his team garners on the court sure do, and Joerger's squad has gone 65-34 since he's been in control as head coach. In addition to finally showing signs that their offense can make the transition to the modern NBA, Joerger has lived up to his reputation as a "defensive guru" and has the Grizzlies playing top 5 defense even after the transition from the hard-nosed Lionel Hollins.

Have a beer or two tonight, Dave. You've earned it. Maybe even a shot?
