Here’s the New Orleans Times-Picayune reporting on the Pelicans, who enjoyed a big performance from Tyreke Evans yesterday:

Tyreke Evans puts up huge game for Pelicans

After sitting out of Friday’s win at Detroit with flu-like symptoms, New Orleans Pelicans reserve swingman Tyreke Evans didn’t appear to be ailing Sunday night.

Evans returned to action, scoring a team-high 23 points in the Pelicans’ 100-92 victory against the Orlando Magic at the New Orleans Arena.

“I’m feeling much better,” Evans said. “I had a lot of confidence tonight, and it really helped me out.”

Before Sunday’s game, Evans was put through a rigorous workout by the Pelicans’ coaches in an effort to build up Evans’ stamina. Evans obviously made it through the session and the game just fine.

Playing 28 minutes, Evans also had seven rebounds and seven assists to go along with his point total on 7-of-13 shooting. He also made 9-of-11 free throws.
