Tyreke Evans as a point-forward looks good. He has been solid on defense too.

John Reid

Tyreke Evans on NOLA's firepower: "We saw it last year, but injuries set us back. If we stay healthy, scoring's not going to be an issue."

Jim Eichenhofer

Tyreke Evans excels in preseason debut, Anthony Davis 2nd straight big game, Pelicans thump OKC. Comment here: on.nba.com/1rh6Pav

Funny moment: An excited Ryan Anderson trying to get Tyreke Evans to look at Pelivision, when Evans was shown as being picked Player of Game

Nakia Hogan

Pelicans now have Tyreke Evans on the court playing what should be considered SF. Jrue Holiday & Austin Rivers at guard spots.

Nakia Hogan

Halftime: Pelicans 64, OKC 45. It was a really good half from Tyreke Evans, who had 8 points and 5 assists in 12 minutes.

John Reid

Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans had their way in the first half. Holiday made four of his first five shots.

John Reid

Tyreke Evans' two-handed dunk after baseline drive. The guy is playing like he hadn't miss any time.

Nakia Hogan

The Pelicans are a much more explosive team with Tyreke Evans on the floor,

Jimmy Smith

Monty Williams being smart about @Tyreke Evans' minutes; sits him with 5:27 to go 1Q. No need to rush him back. Seems ready to go.

Jim Eichenhofer

Not a bad 6:33 stint in his preseason debut for Tyreke Evans (6 points, 3 assists, 1 block). NOLA leads 24-8

Jim Eichenhofer

Early highlights: Anthony Davis with block of a 3-pointer (Perry Jones), a rarity in NBA except for by him. Tyreke 3-point play, looks quick

John Reid

Nice spin around move by Tyreke Evans for shot in the lane. He's attacking just like he did during the final stretch of last season.

John Reid

Tyreke Evans makes nice drive to the basket for layup. Looks quick tonight.

Jim Eichenhofer

It took less than 30 seconds for Tyreke Evans to connect with Anthony Davis for alley oop dunk. That duo was great in 2nd half of '13-14

John Reid

Pelicans' Tyreke Evans looks eager to play after missing the first four preseason games. Wondering will he emerge like last season?

I'm watching Pels swingman Tyreke Evans work on his refined shooting stroke & he's made at least 7 of 10 3s from each spot. Not bad.
