Report card: Evans gets an A in another loss

Evans came back in style

NBA: Chicago Bulls at Memphis Grizzlies Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

Memphis lost a heartbreaker against Chicago last night. This is the nineteenth loss in a row for the Grizzlies. Evans, who returned to the lineup, and Gasol led the team in points and assists.


Tyreke Evans: A

25 points, 5 rebounds, 9 assists, 2 steals in 32 minutes (+15)

After a few games of absence, Evans came back and he did it in style. He was 5 of 9 from the perimeter, aggressive as usual when driving to the basket and distributed the ball well.

Marc Gasol: A

21 points, 10 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 blocks in 33 minutes (+8)

Another game where Gasol led by example. He did a bit of everything and was 2 assists shy of a triple double. He missed the potential game winning basket on a turnaround jumper.

JaMychal Green: B+

15 points, 10 rebounds in 37 minutes (+14)

Green had a solid game on both ends of the floor. He had some easy buckets on cuts to the basket and contributed another double-double.

Jarell Martin: B

16 points, 4 rebounds in 30 minutes (+5)

Martin continues to grow his game this season. He has become a versatile player and his jump shot has improved substantially. He put Memphis up by one with around 20 seconds left to play.

Dillon Brooks: B-

15 points, 2 steals in 29 minutes (+4)

Brooks had a 13 point first quarter and reminded at times of his fourth quarter in Chicago last week where he had 20 points alone. He was quiet for the rest of the game last night.

Deyonta Davis: B-

6 points, 6 rebounds in 14 minutes (-9)

He made a bit of an impact in the third quarter when Gasol committed his fourth foul. He finished well around the rim and was active on the boards.

Wayne Selden: C+

8 points in 19 minutes (-6)

One has the impression that Selden could bring more to the table. He played clutch minutes in the fourth quarter and made two triples.

Briante Weber: D

2 points, 5 rebounds in 20 minutes (-8)

In his return to FedExForum, Weber brought some energy to the game but went unnoticed most of the time.
