Tyreke Evans has become the second best player on the New Orleans Pelicans since being inserted into the starting lineup on Feb. 28.

Evans scored a season-high 33 points on Monday, just two off his career high, and had 10 rebounds and seven assists, helping the Pelicans win for the fourth time in their last five games.

"Tyreke has the ability to play at a high level every single night and that's my biggest thing for him," Pelicans coach Monty Williams said. "Every possession counts. I am going to continue to demand that from him because I think he has abilities that not a lot of people have."

Evans is averaging 22.3 points, 5.8 assists and 5.6 rebounds per game in his 11 starts.

Evans also seems to be meshing well with Anthony Davis.

"We just communicate on the floor," Evans said. "We have a good relationship. We just push each other to try and be the best we can be on the court. We've been doing good with that so far."
