According to ESPN's Tim Bontemps, Quin Snyder will coach the Western Conference in the All-Star game. Snyder has led the Jazz to a league's best 23-5 record through 28 games, including wins in 19 of their last 20 games. Below is a quote from Bontemps' story:

"While the league has not officially announced the game is taking place March 7, if it holds to its typical timeline of selecting the coach of the team with the best record as of two weeks before the game -- which sources say the league intends to do -- then Snyder officially locked up the honor with Utah's win over the Philadelphia 76ers Monday night.

Los Angeles Lakers coach Frank Vogel is ineligible to coach this year, having done so last season, while Monday's win clinched Utah having a better record than the Clippers no matter what happens the rest of this week.

Snyder will be the first Jazz coach to represent the West in the All-Star game since Frank Layden in 1984.

In addition to Coach Snyder, the Jazz hope to send Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert, and maybe even Mike Conley to the All-Star game.
