ESPN's John Hollinger thinks Yi Jianlian improved after his awful performance against Team USA in the Olympic opener, "most notably in the key win over Germany that put China into the quarterfinals". Overall, Hollinger writes, "he had a disappointing tournament", noting that in 180 minutes, Yi had one assist. In the final Olympic stats, Yi finished fourth in rebounds, at 7.5 per game, but 40th in scoring at 9.0.
