In his Chinese television debut, former NBA guard Bonzi Wells helped take Shanxi Zhongyu to the brink of a come-from-behind win only to fall to the Beijing Ducks 93-92 in the last second.

Wells scored five points and had a key assist and steal in the final minute as Shanxi overcame a five point deficit to take the lead 92-91 with five seconds left.

But Duck guard Jie Libin hit a baseline winner with 0.6 seconds on the clock as the home crowd went wild.

The former NBA badboy scored 41 points in the game late Wednesday, had nine rebounds, six assists and five steals, but only made 16 of 37 shot attempts, including one of 11 three pointers.

"I shot the ball way too much. I need to avoid so much individual play and pass the ball more," a disappointed Wells said after the match, according to the Chinese translation.

The 10-year National Basketball Association veteran has been touted as the best player from the world's top league to play in the Chinese Basketball Association.

He scored 48 points in his debut match on Sunday, a 107-106 win over Tianjin.

"What were you expecting from me? No one can play a perfect game every time," Wells told the gathered press that has followed his every move since arriving in China two weeks ago.

Wells averaged 12.5 points and 4.6 rebounds in his NBA career, spent with Memphis, Sacramento, Houston and the Portland Trail Blazers.
