Here is the last round review presented by Job Market.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Sharks as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Sharks smashed 20th ranked Monkey Kings in Shanghai 134-110. Sharks made 30-of-37 free shots (81.1 percent) during the game. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 36 assists. 30 personal fouls committed by Monkey Kings helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American Jamaal Franklin (196-1991, college: SDSU, agency: Slash Sports) stepped up and scored 23 points, 7 rebounds and 9 assists (went 7 for 7 at the free throw line) for the winners and his fellow American import power forward Noah Vonleh (208-1995, college: Indiana, agency: Pensack Sports) chipped in 16 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 blocks. The best for the losing side was the former international point guard Tal Co (191-1991) with a double-double by scoring 18 points, 5 rebounds and 12 assists. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Sharks (25-5) have an impressive series of five victories in a row. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Liaoning FL. Monkey Kings lost twenty seventh consecutive game. They stay dead last with 29 lost games. Monkey Kings will play next round against strong Golden Bulls trying to get back on the winning streak.

American power forward Dakari Johnson (213-1995, college: Kentucky) nailed a double-double by scoring 26 points and 14 rebounds for the winning side and Dezmine Wells accounted for 27 points and 5 rebounds. American guard Kyle Fogg (191-1990, college: Arizona) came up with 27 points and 6 rebounds (went 11 for 11 at the free throw line !!!) for Flying Leopards in the defeat. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Eagles moved-up to fifteenth place. Flying Leopards at the other side still keep top position with five games lost. They share it with Shanghai S..
