Team China Makes FIBA Semis as Yi Goes for 25 and 14

As the games get more important, Yi Jianlian's game gets more polished. Yi had 25 points, 14 rebounds and 4 assists in 28 minutes as Team China beat Taiwan (aka "Chinese Taipei"), 101-83, in the FIBA Asia Cup quarter finals Friday. Yi shot 8-for-18 from the field and 9-for-11 from the line. Taiwan went ahead in the second quarter, but Yi led China on a scoring spree. Semi-finals are Saturday and the finals Sunday.
