The Pistons dropped a fifth consecutive game to start the season, but it was certainly not Greg Monroe's fault.
Monroe had a career-high 11 assists, which is four more than he had in his other four games this season combined.
In the process, Monroe finished with a triple-double, the first of his NBA career. In addition to his 11 dimes, Monroe scored 21 points on 8-of-15 shooting and grabbed a season-high 12 rebounds.
While he got off to a slow start in the team's first three games (no double-doubles), he has had strong back-to-back performances (double-double and triple-double).
On the season, he is averaging 16.0 points, 8.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game.
