He's better than I thought.
Houston could not stop him.

I think Monroe could really help us in the playoffs in trying to "neutralize" the likes of Embiid, Whiteside, etc. especially in the early rounds.

Just give him some time to truly gel with this team and to understand his role better.

He's looked real good lately though, and was fantastic tonight.

The bench looks like its turned a corner.

And Monroe just might be at the center of it.

The smart-Monroe pick and roll works nicely


 Also like Morris with Monroe the size of our bench is overwhelming for some teams like the rockets apparently

At least he seems to really be getting the offence now. Using him at the top of the key has proven to work pretty well, both with him driving or his passing (especially the one to Rozier).

Horford was trash compared to Monroe this game, if we played him down the stretch we would've won.

Al horford  missed a lot of his usually makeable shots
Monroe was quite a revelation and honestly could be like this... Hopefullly going forward.

Im not surewe have enough to catvh theRaptors now but we need for them to lose a couple in the next fewgames to catch up.

Toronto will not lose home vs ATL. Then they will beat the dead Pistons on the road. Only chance of a loss is vs HOU at home but they rarely lose at home. Then after HOU they play the Knicks - put a W for them in that game.

At this point, we are better off hoping for Washington or [somehow] Indy to pass Cleveland and push them to 4th. Both teams only have one more loss than CLE.

As for Monroe, I am happy for him that he performed so well. He chose to come to the Cs in hopes of productive minutes and a lengthy playoff run. Obviously we can't expect the type of game he gave us last night every game, but he should really help in the playoffs when the game slows down on offense and also be able to gobble up lots of rebounds.

That lineup of Moose/ Morris/ Tatum/Smart/Rozier was pretty impressive.

Hope CBS goes with that a bit more. Seems like he hit on something.

I realy cannot understand how Stevens missed with benching Monroe in closing minutes.
