On November 8, the BAIC Men’s Basketball Team tenaciously chased points even though they were behind by up to 22 points, and finally narrowly defeated Nanjing’s top-ranked Sujiu team 103-102 at home. This game was a proving ground for guard foreign aid Evans. He scored 34 points. This was his highest scoring game in the BAIC Men’s Basketball Team. Especially in the last quarter, Evans responded to the opponent with difficult scores many times, which laid a solid foundation for the BAIC men’s basketball team’s victory.
Evans said after the game: “This is what I should do. Whether it is scoring, assists or rebounds, I hope I can help my teammates as much as possible. Of course, my teammates also trust me and they give me a lot of encouragement. Make me better.” Teammate Fan Ziming said after the game: “He has this strength, and I think this is also his normal level. He may have had some offensive struggles before, but in fact he has always had this strength.”
Evans has received a lot of doubts from the outside world before. Before this game, Evans averaged only 11.2 points per game. What is worrying is that Evans’ three-point shooting ability seems to be insufficient. He averaged only 3.8 shots per game and his three-point shooting rate was less than 22%. If the foreign guard does not have good three-point shooting ability, it will be difficult to gain a foothold in the league. In the last round, the BAIC Men’s Basketball Team lost to the Shanghai Men’s Basketball Team in an away game. At that time, internal and foreign aid Leaf was absent due to illness. Evans failed to step up. On the contrary, his offensive efficiency was very poor, scoring only 10 points. Although the outside world thinks that Evans is a bit watery, the team has given him a high level of trust. Coach Leyden said: “He has struggled a little offensively in the past few days, but we believe in him and have always believed in him.” This trust has finally been rewarded. Evans played his strongest game in the BAIC Men’s Basketball Team on the 8th. Especially in the last two quarters, Evans played a very important role in the BAIC men’s basketball team’s pursuit of points and overtake. At the last moment, the opponents Lin Wei and Blakeney scored consecutively, which put the BAIC men’s basketball team under great pressure. At this time, Evans stepped forward and responded by hitting a difficult three-pointer and a breakthrough layup. This is what the outside world expects a defender and foreign aid to look like.
Coach Leyden once again affirmed Evans’ performance after the game. He said: “Evans played very aggressively in this game. He provided us with great support on the offensive end. More than that, he played very aggressively in this game. He also worked hard enough on rebounds and defense.” Teammate Fan Ziming also continued to support Evans. “I think it’s normal for him to have some struggles before. Because it’s his first time playing in the CBA and his first time playing in Asia. He needs some time to adapt and adjust. We have always trusted him, and he does the same. Ability. I think his performance in this game is his normal state.” A reporter asked Fan Ziming directly: “Is he capable?” Fan Ziming directly replied: “Yes.”
