The accolades for the month of November (and some of October) continue to roll in for the Boston Celtics with the league naming Celtics interim head coach Joe Mazzulla their Eastern Conference Coach of the Month. In an interesting twist given Jayson Tatum and the Phoenix Suns' Devin Booker won the East and West Players of the Month awards, the West honors for Coach of the Month went to Suns head coach Monty Williams.
Other head coaches in the mix for the award from the East included J.B. Bickerstaff of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Mike Budenholzer of the Milwaukee Bucks, and Rick Carlisle of the Indiana Pacers.
Mike Brown of the Sacramento Kings, Willie Green of the New Orleans Pelicans, Will Hardy of the Utah Jazz, Taylor Jenkins of the Memphis Grizzlies, and Michael Malone of the Denver Nuggets were in the running for the West award.
