The second most remarkable performance in last round’s games was 21-year old center Shiao Gao (225-C) of Qingdao E.. Gao impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 14 points and 10 rebounds. Bad luck as Qingdao E. lost that game 88-121 to the higher-ranked Shanghai S. (#5, 7-2).

The Player of the week is selected based on efficiency calculation, but also including game result, importance of the game, if played recorded double-double/triple-double, etc.
The efficiency formula is a combination of various formulas used by different basketball organizations/leagues. We got involved many basketball scouts and journalists to assure it’s accuracy.
The formula: 1.5*PTS + 3* (REB+AST+ST+BL-TO) – 2*BSAG – 4*PF + 3*PFRV + 4* (2FGPM+3FGPM) + 1.5*FTM – 3* (2FGPA-2FGPM) – 3* (3FGPA-3FGPM) – (FTA-FTM)
