Rolan headed Khazri's delivery over the bar only shortly before he gave Bordeaux a 19th-minute lead by peeling off his marker to convert Nicolas Maurice-Belay's cross from 10 yards out.
Maurice-Belay nearly provided a second for the hosts when he teed up Gregory Sertic to drag a shot wide from the edge of the area, but Evian threatened a goal themselves prior to the interval.
Khazri's second goal since making the switch across France from Bastia in the summer doubled Bordeaux's lead in style, as he cut in from the left flank to bend a shot beyond Jesper Hansen into the top corner.
However, Bordeaux hung on to climb above Lille and Marseille, and leave Evian bottom and winless.
