After looking through the numbers, this was one of those stories that had to be written.

On the surface, I had realized that Eric Evans had been playing well as of late, playing really well in the past five games, but after digging into the numbers a bit deeper, it was astounding.

To wit:

  • In the past five games, Evans has put together 21 assists to four turnovers and has 12 steals. In that span, he has had two games -- victories against Charlotte and La Salle -- in which he did not commit a turnover.

For that reason, it was high time to write a feature on the quiet kid from Detroit, which you can read here: LINK

But, there is something else to this post.

I want to ask -- this might be a stretch, but it might not -- did Eric Evans' play go a long way toward saving this season?
