They outrebounded Aviators 49-37 including 37 on the defensive glass. Guandong Tigers looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists. Worth to mention a quality performance of American MarShon Brooks (197-89, college: Providence) who helped to win the game recording 25 points and 5 rebounds and the former international JunFei Ren (203-90) who added 17 points and 6 rebounds during the contest. The best for the losing side was the former international center Zijie Shen (210-97) with a double-double by scoring 21 points and 11 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field). Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Guandong Tigers have a solid four-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 40-5 record. Aviators at the other side keep the seventh place with 19 games lost. Guandong Tigers are looking forward to face Ducks (#11) in Beijing in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Aviators will play on the road against Sharks (#13) in Shanghai and are hoping to prove to their fans that the loss was just an accident.
Important game to mention about took place in Changchun. Tenth ranked Jilin Tigers (24-21) saved a 3-point victory at home edging higher ranked Heroes (25-20) 116-113 on Wednesday evening. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Heroes.

Even 38 points (!!!), 6 rebounds and 6 assists by American Lester Hudson (190-84, college: UT Martin) did not help to save the game for Heroes. Both coaches tested many bench players in such tough game. Jilin Tigers moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Sichuan BW and Qingdao E. Heroes at the other side keep the sixth position with 20 games lost. Jilin Tigers will play against league’s second-placed Flying Leopards in Yingkou in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.

Eagles will meet higher ranked Flying Tigers (#4) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game.
