Tyreke Evans visits the Philippines

Tyreke Evans has joined a star studded group of NBA players, including Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose and Chris Paul on tour in the Philippines.  The group played its first game today against a PBA (Philippines Basketball Association) all-star team and tomorrow they will be back to take on the Philippine National Team.

 

The NBA stars pounded the local team 131-105.  JaVale McGee led the way with 25 points, 12 rebounds and six blocks while Kevin Durant chipped in an additional 22 points.  As more footage becomes available, we will pass it along.  Our friends over at Sactown Royalty had a man on the ground in Manilla and his report on today’s game can be found here.  According to Icemanjl (of StR), Tyreke had approximately 14 points and kicked in three or four assists while primarily manning the point guard position off the bench.
