Analysis: Evans continues to produce despite dealing with a sore hip that caused him to miss Wednesday's game at Washington. The well-traveled forward is now averaging an excellent 22 points, 5.3 assists and 4.5 rebounds while going 24 of 53 (45.3 percent) on 3-point tries in eight outings this month. He still runs the risk of sitting out some more games, however, due to this injury and his rather lengthy medical history.

The former Rookie of the Year poured in 32 points in 34 minutes Wednesday against Orlando and is averaging 20.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.2 assists during a five-game tear.
