AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Yi Jianlian's debut with the Dallas Mavericks was nothing near his recent dominant performance with the Texas Legends of the D-League.
Yi played the final 5:24 of Tuesday's 100-86 win over the Detroit Pistons, but those were some forgettable minutes. Yi finished with one defensive rebound and one foul, and did not attempt any shots during his scoreless night.
By contrast, in two games with the Legends, Yi averaged 23 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks.
