Yi Disappoints as Team USA Crushes China

After a miserable first half, Yi Jianlian showed flashes of brilliance in the second as Team USA crushed China, 101-71, in what was the most watched basketball game ever. Yi scored 9 points, but all came after the game was out of reach. NBC's Doug Collins called Yi a "terrific athlete, a very good player" but questioned his commitment and conditioning. Presidents of both nations were on hand for the game.
