From BP: Kevin Pelton Looks at Tyreke Evans First Game

A great breakdown of Tyreke Evans game against the Thunder and trying to figure out if he’s worthy of all the hype.

Besides having him create off the dribble, the Kings used Evans in the post a handful of times. In fact, the first two buckets of his NBA career both came out of post-up situations. If he can score on the chiseled, 6’3″ Westbrook in the post, Evans should have little trouble abusing smaller point guards. One play that could be useful down the line saw Sacramento isolate Evans against Westbrook on the right wing. While he received the ball with his back to the basket, about 15 feet out, Evans was able to spin and face up to put himself in position to get to the rim with a strong dribble drive.
