Greg Monroe posted 15 points, 11 boards and five assists as Detroit won at home vs. the Celtics on Sunday, marking his fifth consecutive double-double.

He shot 6-of-12 from the field but all of his attempts came in the paint, and Boston didn't have enough size to dislodge him. His numbers in January are finally living up to pre-season expectations -- 17.2 points, 11.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.5 blocks.
