ATLANTA (AP) After leading the Atlanta Hawks to the top seed in the Eastern Conference coming off tumultuous summer, Mike Budenholzer beat out Golden State's Steve Kerr for NBA coach of the year on Tuesday.

Budenholzer, in his second year as a head coach, was honored after the Hawks went 60-22 during the regular season, the best mark in franchise history. They won their first division title since 1994, which also was the last time they held a No. 1 seed.

"He deserves it," said Jeff Teague, the Hawks' All-Star point guard. "He's made me a better player. He's made our team better. I'm glad to have him as my head coach."
