Evans recorded 23 points (9-21 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 10 assists, six rebounds, and one steal in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 105-99 win over the Knicks. Evans scored 20-plus points for the 22nd time in 2017-18 while reaching double-digit dimes for the fourth time and recording his second consecutive double-double (and sixth of the season). Evans is enjoying a breakout campaign, and at this rate it seems like it's only a matter of time before he delivers a triple-double. There's still a chance he's traded before the Feb. 8 deadline, which would likely mean a reduced role. However, with the Grizzlies reportedly seeking a first round pick in return, a deal may be unlikely.
Evans registered 15 points (7-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt), 12 assists, nine rebounds and one steal across 36 minutes in Monday's 123-114 victory over the Lakers. Evans has done an exceptional job filling in at point guard with Mike Conley barely playing this season. He was a jack-of-all trades back with the Pelicans and even a bit in his stint in Sacramento, and he's showing flashes of those abilities again this season. While he will hasn't lit up the scoring column in his last two contests, his ability to facilitate and get physical underneath has made up for it and makes him an irreplaceable asset to the the Grizzlies.
Evans posted 12 points (5-13 FG, 2-7 3Pt), four assists, three rebounds and two steals across 32 minutes in Friday's 87-78 loss to the Nuggets. Evans joined Marc Gasol as the only double-digit scorers on the Grizzlies' starting five in what was a generally miserable night on the offensive end. The 28-year-old swingman's scoring total was his lowest since Dec. 20, as he'd managed between 18 and 32 points in his nine previous games. Despite the downturn Friday, Evans' fantasy stock will be particularly elevated while Mike Conley (Achilles) remains sidelined.
Evans managed 26 points (10-24 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven assists, five rebounds and one steal across 32 minutes in Friday's 102-100 loss to the Wizards. Evans had seen a five-game streak of eclipsing the 20-point mark snapped in his most recent contest on Tuesday, but he comfortably exceeded the figure once again as the Grizzlies' leading scorer Friday. The nine-year veteran's shot was somewhat off, yet he managed to make for any inaccuracy through sheer volume. Evans' 24 shot attempts equaled a season high, while his 10 tries from behind the arc were his second-most of the campaign. Evans figures to continue serving as the team's most consistent offensive weapon not named Marc Gasol while Mike Conley (Achilles) remains sidelined.
Evans recorded 18 points (5-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 7-13 FT), six assists, five rebounds and three steals in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 113-105 loss to the Clippers. The Grizzlies dropped their 26th game of the season despite another good game from Evans. Mike Conley is inching closer to 100 percent but that will only spell a reduced role for Andrew Harrison, and Evans will stay at shooting guard. The seventh-year vet might only see a slight downtick in assists and points when Conley returns. Evans remains a quality start in all formats.
