|Malik Monk: Pops in LeBron's absence|
Monk recorded 22 points (8-16 FG, 6-10 3Pt), four rebounds and four assists in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 117-92 win over the Kings.
The Scoop: Monk hit a season-high six three-pointers -- nicely clearing his previous high of four made threes. With LeBron James entering COVID-19 protocols prior to Tuesday's contest, Monk should be in a position for increased usage going forward. He's been a more consistent part of the rotation since mid-November, and he was averaging 11.7 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists in his last 11 games leading up to Tuesday's effort.
