Pistons forward Chris Wilcox had just received a technical foul in Sunday's loss against the Hawks, and coach John Kuester wanted an explanation.

He was motioning to the officials when rookie Greg Monroe walked over to Kuester and said: "Let it go."

Monroe's nightly double-doubles are a bright spot during a dismal season. But the poise and maturity he is showing proves he has the makings of a team leader.

The Pistons weren't happy about the officiating in the 104-96 loss.

Tracy McGrady also received a technical. Kuester and players had beefs all night.
