Yi Watch: Day 36

Yi vs. Angola

Here are some video highlights of Yi Jianlian at the Stankovic Cup, showing off some of the skills that made the Bucks so eager to pick him. Aside from the first game I haven't been able to get his complete stat lines, but he's been blocking shots here and there and rebounding better than he did in Vegas, where his (and the rest of the Chinese team's) aggressiveness on the glass was notably missing. Offensively he's been showing off his repertoire of 18-foot jumpers, turnarounds in the post and fluid moves around the hoop. In the second game he was saddled by foul trouble and only had 12 points, but otherwise he's been pretty consistent, netting 18, 17, and 17 in the three other games.
