Rivers nominated for Coach of the Month

By Chris Forsberg

Celtics coach Doc Rivers was nominated for the Eastern Conference Coach of the Month honor, but lost out to Miami's Erik Spoelstra.

The Celtics went 8-4 in February, while Miami was a league-best 12-1 for the month.

Rivers was one of three East coaches nominated (Indiana's Frank Vogel was the other). This is Rivers' first nomination of the season.
