One good game does not a reliable NBA player make. I've often wanted to
see more of Jeremy Evens in games, because his high-flying energy is exciting
and entertaining. If I'm honest, however, I have to admit that his play
often lacks control over the fundamentals. A lot of missed jumpers and poor
ball handling skills. It's no puzzle to me why he's not in close games
(which is most Jazz games). Maybe it's nerves that become difficult to work
out because of scant playing time.But, he certainly looked good on
Friday. I hope it's a glimpse of improvement and reliable performance, and
not a fluke.
He had this kind of game because he recieved a chance to be on the floor.I
am just happy for him as are alot of other people. Playing time shouldnot be
determined by how much you are paid or how long you have been in the league. This is why Utah has lost alot of player to free agency and players not
wanting to be there.You look at other sucessful teams and coaches . They
play the best players hands down.Not the mind games of money players are
paid and not how many years you have been a pro.
I know it was only one game, but I think Evans is capable of producing similar
numbers in every game. He just needs to add another 10 to 15 pounds of muscle by
next season.Good things always seem to happen when Jeremy is on the
floor. Just like Carroll, he's another guy who deserves as much playing
time as the Jazz can get him.With the likelihood that the Jazz will
lose either Millsap or Jefferson (maybe both), it's great to see that
Jeremy is playing well and ready to step it up next season and take a spot on
the second string.
