Tyreke Evans held up on the defensive end in Pelicans' season opener s.nola.com/qh8ETef via @nolanews

John Schuhmann

Also, the Magic were somehow unaware that Tyreke Evans can't shoot. 11 drives, 1 FGA outside the paint.

Lang Greene

Pelicans Top Six guys are strong: Jrue, EG, Tyreke, Brow, Asik and Ryan Anderson. After that the bench leaves much to be desired

Andrew Sharp

At least 50% of the Pelicans offense is just Tyreke Evans throwing himself at the rim and someone scoring off the rebound

Jason Calmes

Tyreke is also closing in on a double double with 10 points and 9 boards.

Jason Calmes

Holiday leaving the court with a cut under his eye. Rivers replaces him. Expect Tyreke to take over the ball handling responsibilities.

Jason Calmes

Absolutely loved what I saw from Asik and Tyreke. What do you have to say Pels fans? Any take aways from the first 2 quarters of the season?

Yannis Koutroupis

Seems like every time I blink Tyreke Evans is right at the rim, mixed results finishing, though.

Jimmy Smith

Sloppy pass on fast-break by @Eric Gordon to @Tyreke Evans results in turnover instead of PTs.

Jason Calmes

Tyreke with 7 points (3-7), 4 assist, and 2 rebounds. Oh, and 0 turnovers and 0 fouls.

Jason Calmes

Tyreke is just attacking the rim tonight. He is so strong and fast. As long as there are shooters out there, teams can't crash on him.

Jason Calmes

Early notes: Asik had a big quarter, free throws, Tyreke has 4 helpers as the primary ball handler, and please hit your free throws.

Jason Calmes

Salmons checks in for Tyreke.

Jimmy Smith

John Salmons checks Tyreke Evans at 4:35 1Q.

David Thorpe

Aaron Gordon gets to guard Tyreke Evans on his first ever D possession. Nightmares coming.

Nakia Hogan

Tyreke Evans has assisted on 3 of the Pelicans' first 5 field goals.

Tommy Beer

I hope we get a motivated/focused Tyreke Evans this season... Very few players in the NBA w/ more natural talent than Ty Evans

Jimmy Smith

#Pelicans' Jrue Holiday rejects #Magic rookie Elfrid Payton leads to run-out try for Tyreke Evans.

Starters for Pelicans: PG Jrue Holiday, SG Eric Gordon, SF Tyreke Evans, PF Anthony Davis, C Omer Asik.

John Reid

Pelicans starting lineup tonight - Tyreke Evans at SF, Anthony Davis at PF, Omer Asik at C, Eric Gordon at SG, Jrue Holiday at PG.

Jason Calmes

We have an answer to the small forward question. Tyreke Evans will be on the court for tipoff tonight.

John Denton

1 advantage of @Orlando Magic PG @Elfrid Payton 6-4 size -- he won't be overwhelmed by @New Orleans Pelicans Gs Jrue Holiday (6-4) & TyrekeEvans (6-6).

Jim Eichenhofer

Pelicans shootaround update (Ryan Anderson discusses former team; Jrue Holiday says he's 80%; Tyreke starts at SF): on.nba.com/1tBPw9S

John Reid

Tyreke Evans' showing up late to Saturday's open practice -- not good.

Eric Gordon

with my guy @tyrekeevans after #pelicans open practice. s/o to all the fans that came out this morning… instagram.com/p/ulXGYqCwkB/

Nakia Hogan

Pelicans swingman Tyreke Evans was late arriving to practice. Coach Monty said it's an internal issue and the team would deal with it.

John Reid

Tyreke Evans working with the white team - the backups - in scrimmage.

Nakia Hogan

Tyreke Evans is now on the court for the White team to start second half.

John Reid

No alarm folks - I'm told by the Pelicans that Tyreke Evans is fine. Getting in some rest time today.

Jason Calmes

Tyreke Evans is at the Smoothie King Center but not participating in the Pelicans open practice today..

Nakia Hogan

Tyreke Evans just made his way onto the practice court.

Nakia Hogan

Pelicans are set to start their open practice at Smoothie King Center. The only player missing is Tyreke Evans. No word on where he is yet

Jim Eichenhofer

Tyreke Evans handed out 7 assists in his first 2 preseason games (in only 20 minutes per), but scoring more tonight (13 pts/6 reb/2 ast)

Jimmy Smith

Tyreke Evans' mid-range jumper hasn't translated well from the practice gym to a game yet.

John Reid

Pelicans showing quick-strike capability now. Eric Gordon has made back-to-back shots and Tyreke Evans just drove lane for layup.

Jimmy Smith

Rough start for Tyreke Evans: he's 1 of 5 from the field. Several mid-range jumpers have failed to go in.

John Reid

Tyreke Evans already with two fouls with 1:55 remaining in first quarter.

Royce Young

Nakia Hogan

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

John Reid

Pelicans' Jrue Holiday, Tyreke Evans and Eric Gordon in the starting lineup together tonight for first time in preseason.

Eric Gordon

s/o to the whole squad on a good preseason effort tonight. great seeing @tyrekeevans return to play.… instagram.com/p/uPSlNcCwpZ/

Jim Eichenhofer

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

Jim Eichenhofer

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.
