26-year old guard Dallas Moore (185-G-94) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Guangzhou LL and receives a Hoops Agents Player of the Week award for round 53.
He got a double-double of 49 points and 11 assists, while his team beat Tianjin (#17, 10-42) 147-140. The game rather meaningless between the teams, which do not have any influence on top of the standings. Guangzhou LL maintains the 13th position in Chinese league. Guangzhou LL is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 25-30 record. In the team’s last game Moore had a remarkable 65.0% from 2-point range and got four three-pointers out of 9 attempts. He turned to be Guangzhou LL’s top player in his first season with the team. University of North Florida graduate has very impressive stats this year. Moore is in league’s top in points (8th best: 26.6ppg) and averages solid 58.1% FGP and 40.7% from behind 3-point line.

In the last game Jones recorded impressive triple-double of 53 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists. Bad luck as Jilin NE T. was edged by the higher-ranked Qingdao E. (#6, 30-22) 112-111. Jilin NE T. managed to keep the same 10th spot in the standings. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 27-25 record is not bad and everything may still change. Jones is a newcomer at Jilin NE T. and quickly became one of team’s most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 38.4ppg (#1). His other stats are also decent: 10.9rpg and 9.3apg.
Third place about best performers goes to guard Trae Golden (189-PG-91, agency: Network Sports International) of Fujian S. (#16).

He was a key player of Fujian S., leading his team to a 107-97 win against the higher-ranked Zhejiang GB. (#3, 39-11). Fujian S. can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 12-38 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Golden has individually a great season in China. After 39 games, he made it on the list of the league’s leaders in points with 30.1ppg (3rd best) and assists with 8.1apg (4th best). He also has FGP: 55.1% and 3PT: 42.7%.
