Yao Ming played his first game in almost five months after a foot surgery, helping China beat Serbia 96-72 at the Stankovic Continental Cup in Hangzhou on Thursday.
The Houston Rockets' center scored 11 points in 12 minutes, grabbing another four rebounds and having three blocks.
"The stats are nice for Yao, and he didn't make any mistakes on defence. What can we ask him more for?" China's head coach Jonas Kazlauskas said.
Wang Zhizhi led China with 18 points and Yi Jianlian, New Jersey Nets forward, added 14 points for the 11 consecutive warm-up victory.

He remained on the court at the start of the second quarter before he was benched three minutes later when China led 36-23.
Serbia made it 51-39 with a beat-the-buzzer 3-pointer from Macvan on the break and and closed it by 54-46 in the third quarter, the smallest margin of the game.
The host team took a 14-2 run to set the tone of the match and led as many as 31 points on 81-62 in the fourth quarter.
