When Nate Robinson is on and hitting, he is one of the most entertaining players in the NBA — and last week he was hitting. A lot.

Robinson was named the Eastern Conference NBA Player of the week for last week. Golden State’s David Lee was the winner for the Western Conference.

The Bulls went 3-1 last week and Robinson was a key reason — the Bulls are going to defend nightly but until Derrick Rose is back and right, the question has always been where the points would come from. Last week they came from the undersized reserve guard — he averaged 17.8 points a game, plus pitched in 6.8 assists a night.

Lee was a machine last week — 18.0 points, 14.3 rebounds and 7.8 assists a game. On the season he has 31 double-doubles, which leads the league and shows you why he is an All-Star for Golden State this season.
