When It Comes to Yi: The Bad Comes With the Good

New, comments

Averaging more than 22 points and shooting 53% since his return, Yi Jianlian is playing the best basketball of his career... at least offensively. Defense is another story. Yi is undoubtedly talented, but lacking basketball IQ and instincts. And while he's is showing a new aggressiveness at attacking the basket, he's giving up points on the other end. But Kiki Vandeweghe has no choice but to take the bad with the good.
