Tyreke Evans Is Adapting To New Life With Pacers, Leads Team Past Heat

It looks like Tyreke Evans is dealing with changes rather well because of how well he's been doing with the Indiana Pacers. He currently operates as the sixth man and gives aid in the ball handling and shooting areas.

On Friday, November 16th, he had his best game of the season so far and wants to continue improving his abilities with the offense. This is backed up by his impressive stats, averaging around  11.2 points, 2.2 assists, and  2.7 rebounds with a play time of 20.3 minutes. During that time period, he managed to pump out forty percent of his three-pointers.

According to MSN, the bench unit signed him this past offseason for a year but seems to be pulling more than his part. He might even be the tool needed to help the Pacers traverse the slippery slope of the Eastern Conference.

This is great news for Evans as it shows off his hard work in attempting to get his head in the game. The guy even managed to get the feel for the chemistry, which isn't easy by any means as it can differ greatly from team to team. Basically, he's doing decently well for someone that was put into a new team full of players he didn't know. It's also something that a lot of players struggle with due to the fact that it's a new environment. Some players aren't as comfortable with big changes. This means that they end up taking a lot more time to get accustomed to their new teammates and ultimately perform at the top of their class.

It is still early in the season, so, naturally, we're going to see these scores rise up alongside the number of games played and his playtime. This means that he might even pull off a longer contract with the Pacers, assuming that all goes well this season.

One thing that could haunt him is injuries. Evans, like any player, is subject to them; if it does happen, it could lead him off the court for a while. In fact, he has a little bit of a history with the world of injuries, according to the Grizzly Bear Blues, he had cartilage damage to his rib cage in February of 2018.
