Green nominated for Player of the Month

Boston Celtics forward Jeff Green was nominated for the Eastern Conference Player of the Month award in March, but it went to Miami's LeBron James.

Green averaged 17.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3 assists and 1.2 blocks over 33.8 minutes per game in 16 appearances. Green spent half the month as a starter due to injuries.

This is Boston's first Player of the Month nomination of the season. Green has also been nominated for two Player of the Week honors (losing once to James in late February and New York's J.R. Smith in the final week of March).
