Kenny Boynton

30-year old point guard Kenny Boynton (188-PG-91) had an amazing evening in the last round for Tianjin and receives a Hoops Agents Player of the Week award for round 26.
He had the game-high 44 points adding nine rebounds and eight assists for Tianjin in his team’s victory, helping them to edge out Shanxi L. (#8, 15-8) 113-109. Tianjin maintains the 14th position in Chinese league. Tianjin is rather a weak team placed in lower part in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 8-15 record. In the team’s last game Boynton had a remarkable 62.5% from 2-point range and got six three-pointers out of 11 attempts. He turned to be Tianjin’s top player in his first season with the team. Kenny Boynton averages this season 22.0ppg, 5.2rpg and 5.4apg.

Second best performed player last round was Kay Felder (175-PG-95) of Shanxi L.. He is American guard in his first season at Shanxi L.. In the last game Felder recorded impressive triple-double of 41 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists. Bad luck as Shanxi L. was edged by the lower-ranked Tianjin (#14, 8-15) 113-109. This loss caused Shanxi L. to drop to 8th position in the standings. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 15-8 record is not bad and everything may still change. Felder is a newcomer at Shanxi L. and quickly became one of team’s most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 25.4ppg (#1). His other stats are also decent: 7.2rpg and 10.8apg.

Third place about best performers goes to guard Dominique Jones (193-G-88) of Jilin NE T. (#12). Jones got into 30-points club by scoring 31 points in the last round. He went also for ten rebounds and eleven assists. He was a key player of Jilin NE T., leading his team to a 103-102 win against the higher-ranked Shenzhen L. (#6, 15-8). The chances of Jilin NE T. not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 14 games, recording just nine victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Jones could try to bring Jilin NE T.’s a little bit higher in the standings. Jones has a very solid season. In 10 games in China he scored 23.5ppg. He also has 8.3rpg, 8.0apg and 2.2spg.
