Kings' Evans tossed against Lakers
He was tossed in the third quarter Tuesday night by referee Derek Richardson, who whistled back-to-back technical fouls when Evans apparently said something to him.
Evans had just hit consecutive layups to pull Sacramento within one point of the Lakers, and apparently was angry about a foul not being called.
Evans is one of the NBA's leading candidates for the rookie of the year award, entering the game averaging 20.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.8 assists. Oscar Robertson, Michael Jordan and LeBron James are the only other NBA rookies to average a 20-5-5.
