Watch: Kings inadvertently try 4-on-5 defense after botched substitution
However, Cousins never checked in, leaving Sacramento with only four players back on defense. Evans eventually came back onto the court.
After Brooklyn missed a shot and Ray McCallum grabbed the rebound, McCallum found Evans with a pass behind the defense. Evans tried to go up with a two-handed dunk, but he missed the attempt.
Kings owner Vivek Ranadivé previously has pitched the idea of playing four-on-five, also known as cherry-picking, but he probably didn't want it unveiled quite this way.
The Nets won the game 107-99.
