Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks had a roller-coaster 110 ~ 105 win over Jilin Longrun Northeast Tigers in Changchun tonight and stretched its winning streak to 6, the longest winning streak of the post Yao Ming era.

Shanghai Sharks started brightly and led 14 ~ 5, but then the Jilin team, which surprisingly started without their 2 expat players, managed a 19 ~ 4 run to surge ahead, and led 31 ~ 29 in 1Q.

And with their 2 expat players, Leon Rodgers (former NBA player and veteran professional that had played in various European leagues) and DeAngelo Collins (former NBDL player who had played in Argentina, Turkey and Philippines) playing in 2Q and 3Q, the young Jilin team led 55 ~ 47 and 82 ~ 72 by end of 1H and 3Q respectively.

But Shanghai Sharks staged a great comeback in 4Q, led by the mercurial John Lucas III, and eventually overcame the 10-point deficit, and ran out winning the game 110 ~ 105.

John Lucas III was the top scorer with 32 points (12/23 FG% 4/7 3-pointer% 4/4 FT%)/4 rebounds/5 assists/2 steals/4 turnovers. Liu Wei had a relatively off night and shot poorly throughout the game; he only scored 10 points (2/11 FG% 0/5 3-pointer% 6/8 FT%) but had 7 assists.

Both the interior players of Shanghai Sharks played well; Garret Siler scored 19 points (8/10 FG% 3/5 FT%)/9 rebounds/1 block shot; Zaid Abbas scored 16 points (7/9 FG% 2/3 FT%)/9 rebounds/2 block shots. Reserve centre Wang Ligang contributed 4 3-pointers, scored 14 points (5/8 FG% 4/6 3-pointer%) from the bench.

On Jilin side, Leon Rodgers scored 20 points (5/16 FG% 1/9 3-pointer% 9/11 FT%)/10 rebounds/9 assists; DeAngelo Collins in his debut for Jilin scored 23 points (11/18 FG% 1/2 3-pointer% 0/2 FT%)/16 rebounds/2 block shots; Yu Shulong, the young rookie, had a good game, scoring 18 points (7/12 FG% 3/5 3-pointer% 1/2 FT%)/7 rebounds/3 assists.


So Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks is now 6W 2L, and ranked 4th behind Guangdong Hongyuan Tigers (7W 0L), Zhejiang Guangsha Lions (7W 1L) and Xinjiang Guanghui Flying Tigers.

Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks finally had their winning streak of 6 snapped when they lost 106 ~ 103 to Jiangsu Nangang Dragons in Nanjing tonight.

Bob Donewald Jr., the head coach of Shanghai Sharks unlike the rest of the head coaches of CBA, deployed 2 of its expat players in 1Q, but they could only carve out a 9 point lead (32 ~ 23) in 1Q.

And in 2Q and 3Q, they could only use 1 expat player and the Jiangsu Nangang Dragons made full use of their much taller and stronger interior players of Jameel Watkins, Tang Zhengdong and DerMarr Johnson to torment the Shanghai Sharks in absence of Garret Siler, and successfully turned the table on the Shanghai Sharks to lead 53 ~ 51 by half time, and had a 16 point lead (85 ~ 69) by end of 3Q.

Shanghai Sharks then had their full strength squad in 4Q, and they crawled back into the game, by playing tough defense, and relying on sharp 3-pointer shooting from Li Gen, Wang Yong, Liu Wei and John Lucas III. With less than 20 seconds left, with a 3-pointer from Wang Yong, they managed to get the game into a 1-point game (104 ~ 103).

But then Hu Xuefeng scored 2 clutch free throws and left the Shanghai Sharks with only 14 seconds for their last offensive possession.

John Lucas III dribbled the ball up the court, and released an open look, potential game-tying 3-pointer only to have it in and out of the rim, and Jiangsu Nangang Dragons won the game 106 ~ 103.

John Lucas III had a sub-standard game; he only scored 12 points (5/12 FG% 2/5 3-pointer%)/5 rebounds/6 assists; Liu Wei was the top scorer with 28 points (12/25 FG% 2/8 3-pointer% 2/3 FT%)/4 rebounds/2 assists; Zaid Abbas had a double-double; 11 points (5/9 FG% 1/3 FT%)/11 rebounds/3 assists; Garret Siler had a disappointing outing, too many fouls, and only scored 7 points (1/8 FG% 5/10 FT%)/14 rebounds; Local players Wang Yong and Li Gen combined for 32 points, with Wang Yong scoring 6 out of 10 3-pointers for 22 points.

On Jiangsu side, they have 5 players in double digit: Hu Xuefeng: 14 points (5/15 FG% 2/9 3-pointer% 2/2 FT%)/7 rebounds/6 assists/5 steals; Jameel Watkins had 25 points (10/13 FG% 5/8 FT%)/11 rebounds/4 block shots; DerMarr Johnson contributed 18 points (7/13 FG% 4/10 3-pointer%)/4 rebounds; Tang Zhengdong had a double-double: 19 points (8/14 FG% 0/1 3-pointer% 3/3 FT%)/11 rebounds/2 assists/4 block shots; Yi Li scored 19 points (9/15 FG% 0/3 3-pointer% 1/2 FT%).


So Shaghai MAXXIS Sharks completed their road trip, and will be back into Shanghai to meet Bayi Rockets on the 13th.

Yao Ming must be a happy man last night in the Pudong Yuanshen Stadium as he witnessed his Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks team to overcome all adversity to beat Wang Zhizhi (the man he never managed to conquer one-on-one when he was in CBA) and Bayi Fubong Rockets 119 ~ 113 in over time to notch its 7th win in the new season.

This was the very first time in almost 10 years, that the 2 of them met again on a CBA court, but of course this time, Wang Zhizhi is still playing while Yao Ming is already the boss for the Shanghai Sharks. In 2001, Wang Zhizhi and Bayi Rockets beat Yao Ming and the Shanghai Sharks 3 ~ 1 to hoist the CBA Championship before he went to NBA, and Yao Ming never had the chance to get his revenge over Wang Zhizhi.


The game was a roller coaster win for the Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks. Restricted by the rule that every team could only use 1.25 expat player per quarter when played against Bayi Rockets, Shanghai Sharks, relying on some sharp shooting of John Lucas III, were falling behind 18 ~ 28 in 1Q, as Wang Zhongguang erupted and scored 11 points by hitting 3 of 4 3-pointers in 1Q.

Shanghai Sharks crawled back into the game in 2Q, by sending on Zaid Abbas and by double-teaming Wang Zhizhi, limited him to score only 4 points by 1H. Shanghai Sharks took back the lead by 2 points by half time (52 ~ 50).

But when Wang Zhizhi found his rhythm in 3Q, the Bayi Rockets soared back into the lead 83 ~ 72 by end of 3Q.

The Shanghai Sharks managed to reduce the deficit by mid 4Q, but Bayi Rockets again carved out a lead of 12 points with only 3 minutes left.

But the Shanghai Sharks never gave up, and had a double-digit run to tie the game with 1 minute left or so. then Wang Zhizhi scored a 3-pointer to take back a 3-point lead; but Li Gen replied with a tying 3-pointer.

And when Wang Zhizhi scored another 3-pointer with around 15 seconds left, everyone thought the Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks had finally lost the game. Bob Donewald Jr. the head coach, did not call for a time out, and then to the overjoy of the team and the home crowd, Liu Wei scored a tying 3-pointer 0.3 seconds before the end of regulation and forced the game into over time. 108 ~ 108.


Shanghai Sharks eventually won 119 ~ 113 in the over time, as Wang Zhizhi ran out of steam during over time and was not as efficient as he was in 3Q and 4Q.

Liu Wei was the undisputed hero of the Shanghai Sharks, as he almost scored a triple-double: 24 points (8/21 FG% 2/7 3-pointer% 6/7 FT%)/7 rebounds/9 assists/4 steals; John Lucas III scored: 23 points (7/17 FG% 4/9 3-pointer% 5/6 FT%)/1 rebound/5 assists/4 steals; Zaid Abbas was the top scorer of the team with 25 points (9/10 FG% 7/9 FT%)/7 rebounds/3 assists/4 steals. Li Gen (16 points) and Wang Ligang (13 points) contributed a combined 29 points, hitting 7 3-pointers amongst them.

On Bayi Rockets, Wang Zhizhi had a double-double: 26 points (10/23 FG% 2/5 3-pointer% 4/4 FT%)/14 rebounds/2 assists/2 block shots; Wang Zhongguang: 24 points (9/14 FG% 5/8 3-pointer% 1/2 FT%)/3 rebounds/3 assists; Delehai: 19 points (5/6 FG% 5/5 3-pointer% 4/4 FT%)/8 rebounds/1 assist; Xu Zhonghao: 16 points (8/13 FG% 0/2 3-pointer%)/6 rebounds/3 assists/4 block shots.


So Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks is now 7W 3L, and stays 4th behind Guangdong Hongyuan Tigers, Xinjiang Guanghui Flying Tigers and Zhejiang Guangsha Lions.

Despite a little hiccup in 2Q, Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks picked up another easy win over Shanxi Fenjiu 125 ~ 101 in Taiyuan, Shanxi tonight.

Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks had a 12 points lead (35 ~ 23) by end of 1Q, but the Shanxi team had a 17 ~ 3 run to lead 40 ~ 38. But then with John Lucas III back on court, Shanghai MAXXIS Sharks got a 11 ~ 1 run to end first half 59 ~ 49.

Shanghai Sharks never looked back in 2H, played tough defense, kept the double-digit lead, and eventually thrashed their opponents by over 20 points.

John Lucas III was the top scorer with 31 points (12/22 FG% 5/10 3-pointer% 2/2 FT%)/4 rebounds/6 assists/5 steals; Liu Wei: 23 points (9/17 FG% 1/4 3-pointer% 4/4 FT%)/3 rebounds/4 assists/5 steals; Garret Siler: 9 points (4/9 FG% 1/2 FT%)/7 rebounds/1 block shot; Zaid Abbas: 8 points (3/5 FG% 2/2 FT%)/9 rebounds/1 block shot; Meng Liyuan (15 points) and Wang Ligang (17 points) combined for 32 points, hitting 8 3-pointers amongst them.
