Malik Monk described his growth throughout his NBA career, culminating into hitting a game-winning 3 to beat the Detroit Pistons 109-106.

“Every game is getting better and better, too. Hopefully, I’ll keep growing up from there. I’ve been working hard for these two, three years. I’ve been waiting for my moment," said Monk.

Monk has generated 54 points of 32 shots this week, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.

James Borrego added that Monk is finally finding his role in the league,

“Sometimes, you get into an identity that restricts you from what you have in the toolbox. He is a very talented young man. For whatever reason, it’s starting to shine more and more right now.”
