Yi Plays Big at Game End as China Advances to Finals

Yi Jianlian didn't have his best game of the FIBA Asia Cup Saturday but came up big in the end, first hitting two fouls shots with eight seconds left, then blocking a three pointer. Team China beat Lebanon 72-68 to gain Sunday's Asia Cup final vs. Iran and clinch a spot in the 2010 FIBA World Cup. Yi had 18 points and 4 blocks, but only 4 rebounds. NBA journeyman Jackson Vroman scored 27 and grabbed 10 boards.
