Greg Monroe racking up double-doubles like it’s his job (which it sort of is)

Greg Monroe has so many double-doubles this season, the last time a Piston bested his single-season total, Detroit won a franchise-high 64 games. Yeah, those days feel like forever ago.

With 14 points and 12 rebounds against the Heat last night, Greg Monroe posted his 17th double of the season. That gives him the most double-doubles by a Piston since the 2005-06 season, when Chauncey Billups had 27 double-doubles and Ben Wallace had 17.

Monroe was previously tied with Antonio McDyess (16 double-doubles in both 2008-09 and 2007-08) and Chauncey Billups (16 in 2006-07).

The data comes from Basketball-Reference.com, which provides game information only since 1986-87.

In that span, no Pistons rookie has posted more double-doubles than Monroe has this season. Grant Hill held the previous high with 11 in 1994-95.

The Pistons still have 11 games left, so Monroe will likely notch another double-double, which would give him the most point-rebound double-doubles since Rasheed Wallace had 24 in 2004-05. Monroe has an outside chance of passing Sheed, but he won’t top Ben Wallace’s 34 point-rebound double-doubles in 2003-04.

Monroe’s 17 doubles tie him for the 34th most by a Piston in a season since 1986-87. With a double-double in all 11 of Detroit’s remaining games, Monroe would rank 17th. Considering he’s gotten a double-double in about a quarter of his games – albeit, more often recently – Monroe getting three more and ranking 31st probably presents a more realistic scenario.
