Tyreke Evans scored 23 points Wednesday on 8-of-18 shooting as the Memphis Grizzlies lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder 121-114. Evans pulled down nine rebounds and had seven assists, tallying a plus-minus of 0 in his 30:38 on the floor. He added one block and one steal. Evans went 4 of 7 from 3-point range.
Evans supplied 23 points (8-18 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-5 FT), nine rebounds, seven assists, one steal, and one block in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 121-114 loss to the Thunder.
After sitting for five straight games in advance of the trade deadline, Evans fared much better in his second bout back in the lineup, as he managed 12 points (on three-of-11 shooting), five boards, and three assists to four turnovers in 26 minutes during Sunday's blowout loss to the Thunder. With seven showings with four-plus threes this season, Evans is one such outing away from doubling the number of those performances he had during his first eight seasons combined (four). Through 48 games with the Grizzlies, Evans has also made 25.0 percent (103) of his total career threes (412). He remains a nightly triple-double threat and an excellent option across all fantasy leagues going forward.
Tyreke Evans scored 12 points Sunday, going 3 of 11 from the field, as the Memphis Grizzlies fell to the Oklahoma City Thunder 110-92. Evans pulled down five rebounds and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -10 in his 26:14 of playing time. Evans went 1 of 4 from behind the arc.
Evans accounted for 12 points (3-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five rebounds and three assists across 26 minutes in Sunday's 110-92 loss to the Thunder.
Evans was playing in his first game since Jan. 29, as the Grizzlies had held him out in the subsequent five contests while they explored potential trade options. The nine-year vet's shot was cleary off after his multi-game absence, although he was able to salvage his overall line to an extent with a near-perfect showing from the free-throw line. Now that he's likely shaken off some of the rust, Evans will look to get his production back up to normal levels in a rematch against the Thunder next Wednesday.
Evans will re-join the starting lineup Sunday against the Thunder.
Evans was one of the hottest names on the trade market before Thursday's deadline, which led the Grizzlies to resting him the past five games as a way of assuring he would not get hurt. However, Evans remains in Memphis and will resume his regular role as starting shooting guard. He is averaging over 31 minutes a contest this season, expect a similar workload Sunday night.
