According to the Sacramento Bee’s Jason Jones via twitter:
Without Evans, the Kings have started 0-3 on their six game, 11 day road trip back East. Although the Kings’ offense hasn’t exactly stumbled without their leading scorer (putting up 113.3 points per game), the defense has, allowing nearly 124 points a game over the three road losses.
In Evans’ absence, Coach Westphal
has used Jermaine Taylor
, Luther Head
and Pooh Jeter. Before the left ankle injury, Evans, Udrih, Garcia, Thompson and Cousins had comprised the starting unit for four consecutive games, tying the longest streak of the season for one group of starters. Evans should slide right back into the line-up tonight in New York against a much improved Knicks team.
