Emmanuel Mudiay played his first two preseason games with the Guangdong Southern Dragons last week, playing well in the opener but struggling his second time out.

In the first game, Mudiay finished with 20 points, five assists and three turnovers, shooting 7-for-12 from the floor, according to Draft Express. The site also has an interview up with Pooh Jeter, a former NBA point guard that played against Mudiay in China.

“He handled himself pretty well,” Jeter said. “He wasn’t scared. I was happy to see that. It was his first preseason game. He came out there and just played basketball. It’s a big help to have, his mom was there and his brother and cousin, having them in the crowd I bet it made it feel easier.”

The site also has video highlights of Mudiay’s performance.

His second time out wasn’t quite as successful, however, as Mudiay finished with just seven points and fouled out.

Guangdong’s first regular season game is on November 1st.
