Popovich, who guided the Spurs to an NBA-best 62-20 regular-season record, joins Pat Riley and Don Nelson as the only coaches to win the Red Auerbach Trophy three times.

Popovich tallied 59 first-place votes and 380 points in balloting among sportswriters and broadcasters, finishing just ahead of Phoenix Suns coach Jeff Hornacek, who had 339 points (37 first-place votes). The award has been handed out since the 1962-63 season.
