T-Mobile Player of the Week- 2/8/10

This post is sponsored by T-Mobile.

The Knicks had another losing week. This is becoming a thing. Even still, there were a few individual performances of note. Though the experiment might be over now, last week will be remembered as the period in which Nate Robinson played his way into the starting lineup. Nate registered a 22 points, 6 rebounds, and 10 assists in a win against the Wizards. Mike D'Antoni benched Chris Duhon for the entire second half in favor of the lilliputian, and Nate quickly turned a close game into a blowout win. 

Robinson received the start on Friday against the Bucks, but didn't play as well. He shot poorly (3-12) from the field, but did get to the line (7-9) and distribute ably (7 assists, 0 turnovers).

While he wasn't exactly the name on everybody's tongue Saturday night, Nate had himself a splendid performance in the loss to the Cavaliers. He sank 5 threes en route to a 26 point, 6 assist, 4 rebound, 1 steal, 1 rebound performance in Cleveland. And that one block? It wasn't just anything.

Not a bad week for Nate. It sounds like Coach D'Antoni prefers him in a sixth man's role, though, so we'll see if he can keep it up from the bench.
