Emmanuel Mudiay played his second official game with the Guangdong Southern Dragons on Wednesday, and it went much better than his first outing.

He finished with 29 points, nine boards, seven assists and four steals while shooting 12-for-17 from the floor and 3-for-5 from beyond the arc. The box score can be found here and is worth the click just to see how things like turnovers, steals and fouls are translated. Mudiay is No. 0 and listed as EK Mudi Ai.

That’s a much better line than the one he posted in a loss to Stephon Marbury’s team on Saturday, when he finished with 18 points on just 5-for-16 shooting.

The highlights are below. Mudiay struggles early, but you can see why he has so much potential at the end of the game, when he finally gets into a rhythm and starts making some impressive plays going towards the rim:
