PLAYER NOTES

--C Greg Monroe capped off the best month of his young career Wednesday by racking up 19 points and his first 20-rebound performance against Charlotte. He averaged 18.7 points and 10.7 rebounds in February while continuing his push for the league's Most Improved Player award. Monroe's 19 double-doubles, including 13 in the last 18 games, rank eighth in the league.

--G Rodney Stuckey bounced back from two subpar outings with 29 points Wednesday. He shot 10 of 18 from the field and 9 of 11 from the foul line for his second-highest point total this season. He had 36 against Sacramento earlier in the month. Stuckey was coming off a five-turnover outing against Philadelphia the previous night and went scoreless at Toronto in Detroit's last game before the All-Star break.

--G Brandon Knight had 20 points, five assists and no turnovers Wednesday. He scored 14 of his points in the second quarter, when the Pistons stretched a one-point lead to a 58-43 halftime advantage. Knight has reached the 20-point mark eight times in his rookie season. The Pistons are 5-2 when he doesn't commit a turnover.
