The world number one extended his record this year to 18-0 as he triumphed 6-3 6-4 in one hour and 18 minutes on Saturday.
"It's anybody's game (the final) really", Djokovic said. That gave me an opportunity to get into the points.
Tsitsipas, who lost the final a year ago to Roger Federer, won his eighth match in a row by seeing off Evans.
"I managed to stay solid throughout the whole match, I didn't have too much stress, I stayed quite calm and played well", he said.
"I'm most proud of my consistency this week, especially on shots from the baseline".
Djokovic did not drop a set in his opening four matches in Dubai and when he was finally tested against France's Gael Monfils in Friday's semi-finals, came back from a set down and fought off three match points in the second-set tie-break.
"I'm just grateful that I'm playing well, feeling well", Djokovic said. "But it shows how quickly things can turn".
"I was fortunate to hold my serve at the start of the match". "There were some ups and downs, but that's normal".
Ready to fight until the end, Stefanos placed a ideal drop shot to create two break points in the next game, converting the first to pull the break back and lock the result at 3-3.
He served out for victory after another decisive break for 5-4 in the second.
A wide backhand from the Greek as he served at 3-4 gave Djokovic his first opportunity and the 17-time major champion seized it with a brilliant sliding backhand pass, before claiming the set with a victor down the line in the next game.
A game later, Djokovic was lifting another trophy as he found the corner with a victor.
Tsitsipas is looking for his sixth career title, while Djokovic is seeking his fourth Dubai title and 79th overall title. "I think he's fantastic for our sport, not just the way he plays but his charisma, his character, the way he behaves". I've been playing great tennis on the hard courts. "They've been my most successful surface so far".
