Sonny Weems
It's still too early stage of the Regular Season in CBA, but even now we can clearly see the differece between stronger teams and outsiders. There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with favorites losing the games, games ending by tiny margin and even winless team recording their first victory. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Guandong Tigers as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Guandong Tigers defeated 13th ranked Jiangsu Dragons in Dongguan 111-105. Guandong Tigers shot 39 for 58 from the free-throw line, while Jiangsu Dragons only scored twenty three points from the stripe. Guandong Tigers forced 20 Jiangsu Dragons turnovers. 39 personal fouls committed by Jiangsu Dragons helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. The best player for the winners was American swingman Sonny Weems (198-86, college: Arkansas) who scored 30 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. The former international forward Peng Zhou (210-89) chipped in 27 points and 7 steals. At the other side the best for losing team was American Jerome Dyson (191-87, college: Connecticut) who recorded 30 points and 9 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Undefeated Guandong Tigers (6-0) have an impressive six-game winning streak. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. Jiangsu Dragons lost third consecutive game. They keep the thirteenth place with four games lost. They share the position with 3 other teams. Jiangsu Dragons will play next round against strong Long-Lions trying to get back on the winning streak. Guandong Tigers will try to continue on its current victory against seventh ranked Xinjiang Flying Tige in Urumqi.
Another exciting game was played in Jinan between sixth ranked Sturgeons and 7th ranked Golden Stars where Sturgeons (4-2) beat Golden Stars (3-3) on the road with 16-point difference 108-92. It was a good game for Canadian Andrew Nicholson (206-89, college: St.Bonaventure) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 28 points and 12 rebounds. LinJian Chen contributed with 27 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. Lithuanian power forward Donatas Motiejunas (213-90) replied with a double-double by scoring 25 points, 16 rebounds and 5 assists for Golden Stars. Sturgeons have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Liaoning FL and Xinjiang FT. Golden Stars at the other side dropped to the eighth position with three games lost. They share it with Sichuan BW and Shenzhen L.. Sturgeons will play against league's second-placed Golden Bulls in Hangzhou in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Golden Stars will play on the road against Blue Whales (#8) in Sichuan and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Fly Dragons can celebrate finally their first win this season after five consecutive losses. The victory is especially important as they defeated much higher ranked Jilin Tigers (2-4) 136-121 on Thursday. Pierre Jackson had a double-double by scoring 58 points (!!!), 6 rebounds and 10 assists (went 7 for 7 at the free throw line) to lead the charge for the winners.
