Yes, the Detroit Pistons are still winless after 5 games, but Greg Monroe had a phenomenal stat line after Wednesday’s night game against the Sacramento Kings.

SACRAMENTO -- The Sacramento Kings' DeMarcus Cousins and the Detroit Pistons' Greg Monroe, two up-and-coming centers, looked forward to facing off in the paint Wednesday, having compared each other's careers since entering the NBA as first-round picks in 2010. On this night, Cousins earned the win despite Monroe's impressive statistical performance. With Cousins...

I considered leading with Greg Monroe and his triple double (and in some ways, I just did), but I decided to comment about Jrue Holiday. He has been off to a great start this season, and last night he put up 14 points, 5 rebounds, 12 assists and a block. The glitch in the matrix is that he also had 7 turnovers.
