American Point guard Trae Golden (189-PG-91, agency: Network Sports International) had a great game in the last round for Fujian S., receiving a Hoops Agents Player of the Week award for round 54.
The 29-year old player recorded a triple-double of 41 points adding also 10 rebounds and 11 assists, while his team beat Shenzhen A. (#7, 29-23) 118-104. Fujian S. maintains the 16th position in Chinese CBA. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked such low. They already lost 39 games and recorded just thirteen victories. In the team’s last game Golden had a remarkable seven three-pointers out of 12 attempts. He turned to be Fujian S.’s top player in his first season with the team. Former Georgia Institute of Technology star has very solid stats this year. Golden is in league’s top in points (3rd best: 30.4ppg), assists (4th best: 8.1apg) and averages impressive 55.0% FGP and 43.6% from behind 3-point line.
The second best player in last round’s games was 25-year old American Dakari Johnson (213-C/F-95) of Qingdao E.. Johnson had a very good evening with a double-double of 35 points and 20 rebounds. Of course he led Qingdao E. to another comfortable win 117-101 over the lower-ranked Nanjing TX MK (#18, 9-44) being unquestionably team leader. Qingdao E.’s 6th position in the standings has not changed. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 31-22 record is not bad and everything may still change. Johnson is well-known at Qingdao E. and is a proven leader in his second season with the team.
Third on the list of top players last round was Montenegrin forward Marko Todorovic (210-F-92) of Tianjin (#17). Todorovic got into 30-points club by scoring 36 points in the last round. He went also for eleven rebounds and seven assists. He was a key player of Tianjin, leading his team to a 98-94 win against slightly lower-ranked Jiangsu D. (#19, 8-46). Tianjin can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 11-42 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Todorovic he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Todorovic has individually a great season in China. After 24 games, he made it on the list of the league’s leaders in points with 29.7ppg (4th best) and rebounds with 11.4rpg (7th best). He also has 2.2spg and 1.4bpg.

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)
