    He's been the best player for China these 2 games. Better than Yi and Zhou.

    Zhou Qi had a much better game than the first one and showed that he certainly has potential! Obviously he needs to add weight and it would be nice to see him playing with better players around him. The Chinese team is horrible even by international standards. I wish Zhou came over this year so he could get up to speed in the D-league and add weight and strength with NBA trainers, but I like the improvement I've seen so far.

    Definitely. He's got some skill, and at 22/23 years old, his game could still be refined. I think playing outside the CBA would be the best way to do it.

    Zhou Qi had a decent showing today. His lack of rebounding is a worrying. Rather than diving into the paint to try to grab a rebound, his first instinct is to run back on defense. It could be the scheme that the CNT coach is running though.

    His lack of strength made it hard for him to box out or get position. I love his shooting and foot speed. He plays like a huge bankrupt man's Durant. It's not surprising that his favorite player is KD.

    I am still not sure he'll pan out, but I think he's well worth the mid-second round pick just for his potential alone.

    Night and day from Game 1. Good sign, meaning that first game was prob just due to being in complete shock at the competition.

    Not sure why his block on KD was later removed from the boxscore. He said before the matches he hoped to block KD.

    Ill give him a slight pass since he was guarding KD and Melo on the perimeter. When there was a rebound to be had he made no effort to go and get it.

    He's skilled, the biggest problem for him will be adapting to the NBA pace and physicality, not sure if he has it in him.

    Like others have mentioned, the Chinese PG looked nice, solid athleticism and handles. His quickness standing out against team USA, against Irving and Lowry is intriguing.

    more highlights. he looks pretty comfortable putting the ball on the floor and attacking the rim. Not bad for a guy his size. is able to stay with kd or carmelo up until they break out a crossover and lose him.

    Ailun Guo the PG is only 22 years old. Zhou Qi is more relaxed last night.
