PHILADELPHIA--Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau received Eastern Conference coach of the month honors for January, the league announced Wednesday.

At 18-5 entering Wednesday night's slate, the Bulls possess the best record in the conference.

Oklahoma City's Scott Brooks won the award in the Western Conference as a result of his Thunder owning the NBA's top mark, 16-4.

Former Bulls head coach Doug Collins, whose 76ers host the Bulls in Philadelphia Wednesday, was among the East nominees.

Thibodeau's predecessor with the Bulls, Clippers head coach Vinny Del Negro, was nominated in the West.
