Yes, if you are eligible for the extension. I would do the extension 1st, then the green card. There is nothing that prevents you from applying for both if your R1 is running out. One of the things that can happen is that if you apply for a green card and it is denied, then your status will go back to the status you had before if it is still valid. I would apply for the green card 1st if it is a sure thing.
