Greg Monroe scored 12 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in the Pistons’ loss to the Rockets last night. Hopefully, he performance signaled a return to form for Monroe, who, after posting double-doubles in seven of 18 games between Jan. 4 and Feb. 8, hadn’t had a double-double in two weeks and averaged just 8.6 points and 4.8 rebounds in his last five games before the All-Star break.
There’s reason to believe the rookie center is back on track. Monroe’s double-double came in just 27:28, the fewest minutes he’s played in a double-double game this season.
For the record, Monroe accomplished his double-double in the 104th-fewest minutes of anyone posting a double-double this season.
