Very difficult to guard off the dribble, Evans proved impossible to guard when he had his long range jumper falling.
A rhythm shooter, who is best off the dribble, Evans gets defenders on their heels and then leans back for the three. When defenders lunge forward to prevent the jumper, Evans rips right by them to the basket. Also an electric passer, Evans is a threat to deliver an assist pass from anywhere on the court.
His big basket after big basket in a heartbreaking two point loss to the Mean Streets Express was a sight to behold.
