After 8 rounds played we can already see who rules in the CBA and who belongs to weaker ones. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most exciting game of round 8 in the CBA took place in Hangzhou. This derby game ended with only one-point home defeat of second-ranked Golden Bulls (7-4) to sixteenth ranked Brave Dragons (3-5) 117-116 on Tuesday evening. It was quite big embarassment for the home team. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Golden Bulls. Brave Dragons made 30-of-36 free shots (83.3 percent) during the game. 30 personal fouls committed by Golden Bulls helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of American Shabazz Muhammad (198-92, college: UCLA) who helped to win the game recording 39 points (!!!) and 9 rebounds and the other American import guard Josh Adams (188-93, college: Wyoming) who added 30 points and 9 assists (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line) during the contest. American guard Marcus Denmon (191-90, college: Missouri, agency: BeoBasket) responded with a double-double by scoring 39 points (!!!), 11 rebounds and 9 assists. Golden Bulls' coach tried various players' combinations and tested in total eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Brave Dragons moved-up to thirteenth place, which they share with Sichuan BW and Jilin NE T. Golden Bulls at the other side keep the second position with four games lost. Brave Dragons is looking forward to face Monkey Kings (#19) in Jiangsu in the next round where they are favorite. Golden Bulls will play on the road against Eagles (#20) in Qingdao and are hoping to win this game.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Sharks (6-2) against eleventh ranked Beijing Ducks (4-4) on Tuesday night. Visiting Sharks were crushed by Beijing Ducks in Beijing 112-93. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of Sharks. The winners were led by Croatian-American center Justin Hamilton (213-90, college: LSU) who scored that evening 31 points and 6 rebounds (on 12-of-15 shooting from the field) and Aaron Jackson supported him with 18 points and 14 assists. Even 27 points and 8 rebounds by Argentinian-Spanish power forward Luis Scola (206-80) did not help to save the game for Sharks. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Beijing Ducks moved-up to ninth place, which they share with 3 other teams. Sharks at the other side keep the third position with two games lost. They share it with Liaoning FL. Beijing Ducks will play against higher ranked Zhejiang Guangsha Lions (#5) in Hangzhou in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Sharks will play at home against Gold Lions and hope to get back on the winning track.
CBA top team - Guandong Tigers (8-0) managed to deliver another win on Tuesday. This time they beat seventh ranked Sturgeons (4-4) in Jinjiang 142-129. The best player for the winners was Malcolm Delaney who had a double-double by scoring 31 points and 10 assists. Andrew Nicholson produced a double-double by scoring 32 points and 13 rebounds for the hosts. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Undefeated Guandong Tigers have an impressive eight-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 8-0 record. Loser Sturgeons dropped to the ninth place with four games lost. They share the position with 3 other teams. Guandong Tigers will meet Long-Lions (#8) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Sturgeons will play against Leopards in Shenzhen and hope to secure a win.
A very interesting game took place in Guangzhou. It ended with only one-point home defeat of higher ranked Long-Lions (5-3) to eighteenth ranked Fly Dragons (2-6) 132-131 on Tuesday evening. Americans were the main players on the court. Pierre Jackson saved the victory with a double-double by scoring 48 points (!!!), 5 rebounds and 10 assists (was perfect 16-for-16 from the free throw line !!!). Long-Lions' coach let to play ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Fly Dragons moved-up to sixteenth place, which they share with Bayi R. and Tianjin GL. Long-Lions at the other side dropped to the sixth position with three games lost. Fly Dragons' next round opponent will be Bayi Rockets (#16) in Ningbo.
16th ranked Bayi Rockets (2-6) were outscored at home by top-ranked Zhejiang Guangsha Lions (5-0) with the biggest margin this round 113-85 on Wednesday night. Worth to mention a quality performance of Courtney Fortson who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 13 points, 7 rebounds and 14 assists. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Undefeated Zhejiang Guangsha Lions have an impressive five-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place. Loser Bayi Rockets keep the sixteenth position with six games lost. Zhejiang Guangsha Lions will face Beijing Ducks (#11) at home in the next round where they are favorite.
