Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau was named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month on Friday.

The Bulls closed out March with a 13-3 record and hold a two-game lead on the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. The Bulls also won their first division title since the 1997-98 season, the year of their last NBA title.

The Los Angeles Lakers' Phil Jackson won the award for the Western Conference, after finishing the month with a league-best 12-1 record.
