Yi Goes for Double-Double in China, Heads for US

Yi Jianlian scored 17 points, grabbed 14 boards and blocked four shots in an Olympic warm-up against Australia's NBL All-Stars. Team China won 66-61 but Yi was criticized for seeming distracted. For more than six minutes in the first quarter, the Chinese didn't score. Leading by one in the fourth, they finally went on a run. Yi leaves China Sunday and will be introduced to the New York media Wednesday.
