Yao Ming scored 21 points in his charity game played in Beijing Friday night in which the Chinese team won 101-92. Steve Nash scored 13 points, and interestingly, it sounds like Carmelo Anthony played for the Chinese team in the second half, not Yao Ming as was expected.

Yi Jianlian scored 20 points for the Chinese, and Phoenix Sun Leandro Barbosa led all scorers with 22 points.
