Cleveland, and he didn’t disappoint.

The way the former Hawkeye performed, there will likely be plenty more opportunities for playing time.

Evans recorded his second double-double of the season, scoring a season-high 15 points and grabbing 13 rebounds in the Raptors 104-96 loss to the lowly Cavaliers.

The former Iowa standout and eight-year NBA veteran began playing again on March 9 after being sidelined for more than three months recovering from foot surgery.

Despite his recent success, Toronto continues to struggle. The Raptors (21-57) have managed only one victory in their last nine games and sit in last place in the Atlantic Division.

Evans — one of only four Hawkeyes to ever reach 1,000 points in just two season — is averaging 4.2 points and 11.2 rebounds per game this season.
