Yi Rebounds With Double-Double as China Beats Angola

Yi Jianlian scored 10 points on 5-for-8 shooting, grabbed 11 rebounds and showed the fire his team had needed as China beat undersized Angola, 85-68. Yi played a strong inside game, throwing down several dunks. Yao Ming had the highest scoring game in the Olympics with 30 points. Yi is now one of the Games' top rebounders. China's coach suggested Yi and Yao had been having difficulty with on-court chemistry.
