Yi Finishes With Olympic Averages of 9.0 ppg and 7.5 rpg

Recovering from a bad game against the US and an even worse one against Spain, Yi Jianlian finished the Olympics averaging 9.0 ppg and 7.5 rpg, slightly higher than his NBA rookie marks of 8.6 and 5.4. Yi shot 46.7% overall in six games, but a disappointing 22.2% from the shorter international arc. He shot 90.9% at the foul line. His rebound numbers have him currently tied for fourth with Pau Gasol.
