Beast of the Night: Tyreke Evans had another big game, putting up 27 points, five rebounds, 12 assists and two steals against the Nuggets last night.  He shot 61 percent (11-18) from the field, 100 percent (5-5) from the free-throw line and had just one turnover. In other news, Evans is opting to stay home instead of play in the Rookie-Sophomore game during All-Star weekend to rest his feet. Owner beware.
