Stat Line of the Night — 12/23/2013 — Tyreke Evans
Tyreke Evans spent the first three years of his NBA career in Sacramento, but after departing for New Orleans during the off-season, he made his return to the place he used to call home when the Kings hosted the Pelicans at Sleep Train Arena last night.
And what a return it was for Evans.
Coming off the bench, the 24-year-old point guard recorded 25 points, 12 assists, six rebounds, and three steals in 36 minutes of action, helping the Pelicans come away with the 113-100 road victory.
After missing a few games with an injury, Evans seems to have found his game as of late, averaging 19 points, 9.3 assists, 8.3 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks over his last three games. He earns “The Stat Line of the Night” for Monday, December 23, 2013.
