China will face its second straight gold medal contender early Tuesday morning when they go up against Spain. For Yao Ming, and particularly Yi Jianlian, it'll be a chance to redeem themselves after yesterday's blowout loss to Team USA. Spain's bigs include the Lakers' Pau Gasol, his brother Marc of the Grizzlies and Jorge Garbajosa who spent two years in Toronto. The game airs on MSNBC at 4:45 a.m. EDT.
