Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau has been pleased with what he has gotten out of Nate Robinson this season and thinks the guard is improving.

Thibodeau coached Robinson when he was an assistant with the Boston Celtics and knows that the guard can play an up-and-down game, bringing energy and scoring when he is playing well, but causing turnovers and missing shots when he is off. Thiodeau said Robinson is different now with the Bulls than he was with the Celtics, and added that he thought Robinson was "still growing."

Thibodeau also said, "I want him to be consistent and I want him to try to concentrate on his improvement, and run our team well." This season with the Bulls Robinson is averaging 11.4 points and 3.4 assists in 20.6 minutes per game.

The Bulls are 9-8 and next take on the Detroit Pistons on Friday, Dec. 7 at 6:30 p.m. CT.
