Tom Thibodeau's first season as NBA head coach got a bit better Tuesday after being named the NBA's Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for January.
The Bulls went 12-4 in January despite playing without injured center Joakim Noah for the entire month and missing power forward Carlos Boozer for a few games.
Out of the 12 victories were wins against other eastern conference powers including the Boston Celtics, Miami Heat and Orlando Magic.
Chicago plays it's first game of February on Wednesday when they visit the Staples Center to take on the Los Angeles Clippers and start a five-game road trip.
