The Regular Season in CBA is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 8 rounds. Here is the last round review presented by Job Market.

Top ranked Sharks (25-6) recorded its sixth loss in Changchun on Sunday night. Visitors were defeated by tenth ranked Jilin Tigers (17-14) 118-108. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of Sharks. Jilin Tigers forced 19 Sharks turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists. 27 personal fouls committed by Sharks helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. The best player for the winners was American guard Dominique Jones (193-1988, college: S.Florida) who had a double-double by scoring 40 points (!!!), 20 rebounds, 8 assists and 4 blocks. point guard Weize Jiang (182-2000) chipped in 23 points and 9 assists. American power forward Noah Vonleh (208-1995, college: Indiana, agency: Pensack Sports) produced 25 points and 7 rebounds for the guests. Sharks’ coach rotated eleven players in this game, but that didn’t help. Jilin Tigers have an impressive series of eight victories in a row. They maintain tenth place with 17-14 record. Sharks at the other side still keep top position with six games lost. They share it with Liaoning FL and Zhejiang GB.. Jilin Tigers are looking forward to face Blue Whales (#16) in Sichuan in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Sharks will play on the road against Monkey Kings (#20) in Jiangsu and are hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Hangzhou. Third ranked Golden Bulls (25-6) saved a 1-point victory at home edging second-ranked Flying Leopards (25-6) 97-96 in the game for the first place. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The former international point guard Qian Wu (188-1994) saved the victory by scoring 35 points (!!!), 5 rebounds and 5 assists (was perfect 10-for-10 from the free throw line !!!). Erick Green contributed with 29 points and 12 rebounds for the winners. American guard Kyle Fogg (191-1990, college: Arizona) answered with 33 points (!!!) and 9 rebounds for Flying Leopards. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. The victory was the fifth consecutive win for Golden Bulls. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Liaoning FL and Shanghai S. Flying Leopards lost their third game in a row. Golden Bulls’ supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Hangzhou to the arena Guangsha Lions.
Bottom-ranked Monkey Kings managed to get a second victory, breaking the series of twenty seven consecutive losses on Sunday night. This time they won against eighteenth-ranked Jiangsu Dragons 95-80. It’s especially surprising that the victory came too easily and 15-point difference proves that Monkey Kings was well-prepared to that game. It was a great evening for DMontre Edwards who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 26 points and 16 rebounds. Rongqi Huang responded with 25 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Monkey Kings maintains twentieth place with 2-29 record. Jiangsu Dragons lost their ninth game in a row. They keep the eighteenth position with 27 games lost. Monkey Kings will meet at home league’s leader Sharks in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Jiangsu Dragons will have a break next round.

Other games of round 35 were very predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
