Glenn Robinson III is having a career year with the Warriors

In his sixth NBA season, Glenn Robinson III is getting his chance to shine.

Robinson, 25, is having the best season of his career so far in his first year with the Golden State Warriors. On Friday night, he continued his stellar play during the Warriors’ 100-98 win over the Chicago Bulls. Robinson scored a team-high 20 points, shooting 66.7% from the field and 50% from the 3-point line.

Robinson, the 2017 Slam Dunk Contest champ, is playing the most minutes of his career (32.1) and is averaging a career-high in points (11.8). He is also averaging a career-high 4.6 rebounds.

For the Warriors, a team that’s quickly went from the top to the bottom, Robinson has been a bright spot. In the past eight games, he has scored 13.6 points per game and 3.4 rebounds.

During that stretch, Robinson also posted a career-best 25 points in a loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Nov. 25.

An athletic wing throughout his career, Robinson is getting an opportunity to show he can be more just a dunker. An above average shooter, Robinson is shooting the second-highest 3-point percentage of his career (39.2). He’s enjoying the second-highest usage of his career as well (15.3).

As the Warriors go through this down year, Robinson could cement himself as a key player for the franchise’s future. Before this season, he had never averaged double figures in scoring.

The Warriors are the fifth team Robinson has played on, but with his quality play this season, perhaps he’s found a home in Golden State.
