Mike Evans doesn't have enough time. Shuttling between practice with the U.S. national water polo team at Newport Harbor High School and his insurance benefits company in Anaheim Hills leaves little time for his family--his wife, Dina, and children, Adam, 7, Cristina, 4, and Benjamin, 2. "Most of the time I leave in the morning before the children wake up and I come home at night after they've gone to bed, and then I'm also out of town a lot, so it's been kind of tough," Evans said.

Tony Tucker, the last man to defeat heavyweight champion Buster Douglas, found himself in an unexpectedly difficult fight at the Forum Thursday night, but he pulled out a unanimous decision over lightly regarded Mike Evans. Tucker was either thumbed or was hit on his left eye--depending on whose version you believe--in the fifth round and said afterward he was seeing "in doubles and triples" when one Mike Evans was plainly enough.

Mike Evans is a player who either shoots the Denver Nuggets into a game or out of it. This season, he has done more of the latter and has spent much time in Coach Doug Moe's doghouse. Evans scored 20 points Friday night at Dallas, but it was a defensive play by the 6-1 guard that gave the Nuggets a 116-113 victory over the Mavericks and allowed Evans to emerge from the doghouse.

Six-figure salaries are the norm in the National Basketball Assn., but the paychecks of individuals do not necessarily reflect contributions this season, a Detroit newspaper reported Sunday. Salaries for the current season range from the $60,000 paid Denver Nuggets guard Mike Evans to the $2.5 million paid Los Angeles Lakers guard Magic Johnson, the Detroit Free Press said. The newspaper said it obtained a list of salaries supplied twice yearly to each team by the NBA Players' Assn.
