Evans: I was misquoted!

By Mike Mazzeo

Brooklyn Nets power forward Reggie Evans said Thursday he never downplayed the Miami Heat's championship from the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season, and that his comments were blown out of proportion.

Prior to Wednesday night's 105-85 loss to the Heat, Evans dismissed the Heat's title, telling the New York Daily News: "It doesn't prove nothing. That was a lockout season."

"Well, I didn't say it didn't prove anything. Those were not my exact words," Evans said Thursday during an interview on SiriusXM radio's "Off the Dribble" show. "I just said they won a championship in a lockout season. That's what I said. So I never downplayed it or nothing, I just said they won a championship. That was really about it. I guess people just took it out of proportion."
