Tyreke Evans Continues His Impressive Season With Sacramento Kings
Tyreke Evans is not used to putting in 43 minutes on the floor for the Sacramento Kings in a single game. But he made the most of his minutes Saturday night with an impressive performance for an improved Kings team in a 103-98 NBA loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Evans has been averaging 31.9 minutes, plus 15.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game while shooting 48 percent from the floor. His previous two games prior to facing the Lakers featured playing minutes of 33 and 34. But he was on the court for all but five minutes in the battle against the Lakers and pleased the sellout crowd at Sacramento. He shot 9-of-15 from the floor and was 3-of-3 from the line for 21 points. He grabbed nine rebounds and dished out six assists. But he was also careless with four turnovers.
His shooting continues to be solid this season in all areas. He’s been shooting better this season than his career mark of 44.9. Evan is headed for his best shooting season in his four-year NBA career. This is also slated to be Evans’ first season in which he’s been shooting more than 30 percent in 3-pointers. His turnovers per game is at an all-time season low of 2.02.
The Kings ended March with a solid month and Evans is hoping to help his team carry its momentum into April. The Kings don’t know what city they’ll be at, but want to get themselves set up for a strong 2013-14 campaign. That’s why they’ll be a dangerous team for the rest of this season
