There were just 8 rounds played in Regular Season of CBL and we can clearly see which teams will fight for top positions and which will try to avoid bottom places. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of undefeated Hunan (3-1) on the court of top-ranked Guangxi on Sunday night. Visitors were defeated by Guangxi 106-99. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Hunan. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Guangxi have a solid four-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Anhui W. and Shaanxi. Hunan at the other side dropped to the fourth place with one game lost. They share the position with Wuhan. Guangxi will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Hunan will play on the road against Luoyang (#3) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Important game to mention about took place in Xian. Top-ranked Shaanxi (4-0) saved a 2-point victory at home edging 5th ranked Wuhan (3-1) 84-82 on Sunday evening. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Wuhan. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Shaanxi have a solid four-game winning streak.

Foshan moved-up to sixth place, which they share with 3 other teams. Loser Beijing still keeps top with four games lost. They share the position with Luoyang and Jiangsu YS.
