Lawrence Frank routinely calls the most crucial point of games — "The moment of truth." After Wednesday's victory over the Nets, Frank might call it "baby steps" as the Pistons withstood a late charge, winning their season-high third straight game, 99-92 at the Prudential Center. It was capped off by perhaps the most emphatic play of Greg Monroe's career. With the Pistons (7-20) nursing a six-point lead and the shot clock running down, Monroe drove on Kris Humphries, dunking on him and Keith Bogans. It was followed by a flex and a stare from the usually even-keeled Monroe, who scored again on the next possession and finished with 20 points, 12 rebounds and four assists.
