    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.
