The Coach of the Year voting totals for Phoenix’s Jeff Hornacek broke down as follows:
1st place votes: 37
2nd place votes: 44
3rd place votes: 22
Total points: 339
The end result was a second-place finish to San Antonio’s Gregg Popovich, who finished just 41 points ahead of Hornacek.
For Suns players, however, the Coach of the Year was right here in Phoenix.
“To me, I think he’s coach of the year by far,” Gerald Green said. “It’s not even close.”
