Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

CBA top team - Guandong Tigers (23-3) added another victory to their record on Sunday. This time they beat seventeenth ranked Blue Whales (7-18) in Dongguan 108-101. Guandong Tigers looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. It was a great evening for American guard Malcolm Delaney (191-89, college: Virginia Tech) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 29 points, 10 rebounds and 7 assists. The former international Jianlian Yi (212-87) helped adding 24 points and 6 rebounds. The best for the losing side was American power forward Jason Thompson (211-86, college: Rider) with a double-double by scoring 32 points and 18 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Guandong Tigers have an impressive series of twenty victories in a row. They maintain first place with 23-3 record. Blue Whales at the other side keep the seventeenth position with 18 games lost. Guandong Tigers are looking forward to face Xinjiang Flying Tige (#6) in Urumqi in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Blue Whales will play at home against Long-Lions (#9) and are hoping to prove to their supporters that this time they can win.
An interesting game took place in Hangzhou where 4th placed Zhejiang Guangsha Lions (18-7) were upset on its own court by sixteenth ranked Monkey Kings (9-17) 108-92. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Zhejiang Guangsha Lions. It was an exceptional evening for American guard Joseph Young (188-92, college: Oregon) who led the winners and scored 43 points (!!!), 7 rebounds and 4 assists. JianYe Song accounted for 21 points and 5 rebounds. International center Jinqiu Hu (208-97) came up with a double-double by scoring 17 points and 14 rebounds for Zhejiang Guangsha Lions in the defeat. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Monkey Kings moved-up to fourteenth place, which they share with Shanxi Z. Zhejiang Guangsha Lions at the other side keep the fourth position with seven games lost. Monkey Kings will play against higher ranked Sturgeons (#8) in Jinjiang in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Zhejiang Guangsha Lions will play on the road against Jiangsu Dragons (#12) in Nanjing and hope to get back on the winning track.
An interesting game took place in Urumqi where higher ranked Xinjiang Flying Tige (17-8) was upset on its own court by thirteenth ranked Golden Bulls (10-16) 111-105 on Sunday. It ended at the same time the eight-game winning streak of Xinjiang Flying Tige. The best player for the winners was Cheng Shuaipeng who scored 39 points (!!!) and 5 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was Abudushalamu Abudurexiti who recorded a double-double by scoring 26 points, 11 rebounds and 4 blocks. Xinjiang Flying Tige's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Golden Bulls maintains thirteenth place with 10-16 record. Loser Xinjiang Flying Tige dropped to the sixth position with eight games lost. Golden Bulls will meet at home higher ranked Golden Stars (#10) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Xinjiang Flying Tige will play against the league's leader Guandong Tigers (#1) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
Third ranked Leopards (20-6) crushed at home 18th ranked Fly Dragons (7-19) by 28 points 108-80, which is the biggest margin this round. It was a good game for Dwight Buycks who led his team to a victory with 21 points, 5 rebounds and 6 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. The victory was the third consecutive win for Leopards. They maintain third place with 20-6 record having just three points less than leader Guangdong ST. Fly Dragons at the other side keep the eighteenth position with 19 games lost. Leopards' next round opponent will be Eagles (#16) in Qingdao which should be another easy win for them. Fly Dragons will play on the road against Bayi Rockets in Ningbo and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 27: Beijing Ducks lost to Shenzhen L. on the opponent's court 83-93. Shanxi Z. lost to defending champion Liaoning FL in a home game 102-112. Zhejiang Ch. managed to beat Sichuan BW on the road 97-92. Shandong GS defeated Bayi R. on its own court 106-100.

Shenzhen L. - Beijing Ducks 93-83

Rather expected game in Shenzhen where 5th ranked Beijing Ducks (18-8) were defeated by third ranked Leopards (20-6) 93-83. Leopards forced 19 Beijing Ducks turnovers.

Liaoning FL - Shanghai S. 126-120

Not a big story in a game in Yingkou where 7th ranked Sharks (16-10) were defeated by second ranked Flying Leopards (22-4) 126-120. However just six-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory. Flying Leopards dominated down low during the game scoring 82 of its points in the paint compared to Sharks' 52. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 21 assists. Flying Leopards brought some defensive toughness making 7 blocks. It was a good game for American Lester Hudson (190-84, college: Tenn-Martin) who led his team to a victory with 41 points (!!!) and 8 rebounds. The former international Ailun Guo (192-93) contributed with 25 points and 7 assists for the winners. American point guard Jimmer Fredette (188-89, college: BYU) answered with 36 points (!!!) and 6 assists and point guard Hanchen Luo (188-94) added 26 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists (on 10-of-11 shooting from the field) in the effort for Sharks. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Both coaches allowed to play bench players saving starting five for next games. The victory was the eleventh consecutive win for Flying Leopards. Defending champion maintains second place with 22-4 record behind leader Guangdong ST. Sharks at the other side keep the seventh position with ten games lost. Flying Leopards' next round opponent will be Beijing Ducks (#5) on the road. Sharks will play against Jilin Tigers in Changchun and hope to win that game.

Shenzhen L. - Beijing Dragons 108-80

Third ranked Leopards (20-6) crushed at home 18th ranked Fly Dragons (7-19) by 28 points 108-80, which is the biggest margin this round. Leopards forced 21 Fly Dragons turnovers. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 21 assists. It was a good game for American point guard Dwight Buycks (191-89, college: Marquette) who led his team to a victory with 21 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists. Swingman Xining He (193-97) contributed with 21 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Four Leopards players scored in double figures.

They maintain third place with 20-6 record having just three points less than leader Guangdong ST. Fly Dragons at the other side keep the eighteenth position with 19 games lost.

Guangdong ST - Sichuan BW 108-101

CBA top team - Guandong Tigers (23-3) added another victory to their record on Sunday. This time they beat seventeenth ranked Blue Whales (7-18) in Dongguan 108-101.

Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Guandong Tigers have an impressive series of twenty victories in a row. They maintain first place with 23-3 record. Blue Whales at the other side keep the seventeenth position with 18 games lost. Guandong Tigers are looking forward to face Xinjiang Flying Tige (#6) in Urumqi in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game.

Xinjiang FT - Zhejiang Ch. 105-111

An interesting game took place in Urumqi where higher ranked Xinjiang Flying Tige (17-8) was upset on its own court by thirteenth ranked Golden Bulls (10-16) 111-105 on Sunday. It ended at the same time the eight-game winning streak of Xinjiang Flying Tige. Golden Bulls made 26-of-33 free shots (78.8 percent) during the game.

2019-20 CBA Changes - 4 minutes ago
down
The 2019-20 CBA season is expected to have some significant rule changes that will directly affect the level of players signing in what has been one of the top leagues, as far as money is concerned, at least. The CBA has ratified a standard contract that essentially makes EVERY contract non-guaranteed at least for the first two months, the silver lining for players/agents is that the CBA season traditionally starts so late, that 90% of the non guaranteed portion will be satisfied before...   [read more]
