VIDEO: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Thunderdunks on Greg Monroe

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had the highlight of the night on Greg Monroe, coming in ungaurded to the lane to throw it down. Monroe didn't know much about it until it was too late, but that won't stop the posters getting made.

But, we gotta talk about the Pistons. Led by Monroe and Brandon Knight, they pulled off a victory against the Bobcats, 105-99. Knight did his thing for three quarters, scoring 21 points. Knight hyperextended his knee in the third quarter, and was then sent back on the court in the fourth, only to injure his ankle. 

Though Monroe then picked up his game and scored 10 in the fourth quarter to give Detroit the win, it seems highly questionable to send a young point guard back into a game after injuring his knee in a game between teams with a combined 33 wins. Hopefully, neither injury is serious, but we've seen several young guards lose serious time to knee injuries in the last few seasons (Derrick Rose, Iman Shumpert).
