NEW YORK -- Brooklyn's Jason Kidd has won Eastern Conference coach of the month honours for March, becoming just the second NBA coach to win twice in his rookie season.

Kidd was honoured Tuesday after the Nets went 12-4 while playing all month without starting centre Kevin Garnett. He also won the award for January, joining Chicago's Tom Thibodeau as the only two-time winners in their first season since the league began giving monthly coaching awards in 1982-83.

He has led the Nets from a 10-21 start to the brink of the playoffs entering their game against Houston on Tuesday.

San Antonio's Gregg Popovich won the West award after the Spurs went undefeated in March, ending the month with a franchise-record, 18-game winning streak.
