Dongguan 97, Xinjiang 90: I don’t know about the firing of their coach, but I think the buyout of Kenyon Martin’s contract was the right decision.  Neither move has put the Flying Tigers on the winning track, though.  This seven-point loss to Shavlik Randolph (17/9) and Donguan makes them 0-2 since K-Mart’s departure.  I suppose the two defeats can be attributed to the bum hamstring of Patty Mills, which has now kept him from playing in the second half of the previous game and the entirety of this one.  Josh Akognon was the game’s leading scorer with 24 points. 

Tianjin 108, Foshan 93: Foshan follows up the huge win that ruined Beijing’s perfect season with a 15-point loss to Tianjin, one of the league’s worst teams.  Zeng Lingxu led Foshan with 29 points, and Zhang Nan led Tianjin with 26.  Foshan and Tianjin both stand at 5-10 on the season.

Qindago 100, Shandong 94: Lester Hudson made 13 of 13 freethrow attempts as he came up just two assists shy of a triple-double (30/10/8).  Four players combined to score all but nine of Qindago’s points.  Othello Hunter led Shandong in both scoring and rebounding with 19/11.

Guangsha 106, Jiangsu 99: Jackson Vroman looked beasty at the start of the game, but Peter John Ramos proved to be the superior big man as he scored 27 points and grabbed 22 boards.  Vroman drove baseline around Ramos for a dunk that brought him to 10 points early in the second quarter, but he was relatively quiet from that point on (finished with 22/10 on 8-15) as Ramos dominated the action.  Wilson Chandler’s 25/15/5 included a really long three that helped Guangsha break away a little bit down the stretch.  Ramos had two alley-oops around the same juncture that proved to be huge plays.  One of them was a bad pass, but he managed to guide it in with his fingertips.  Check out this article from NiuBball.com that goes into detail on the positive impact that Ramos has had on Guangsha.

Guangdong 111, Shanxi 106: Marcus Williams and Charles Gaines went large to the tune of 35 a piece on just 30 total shots–ponder those numbers for a moment, they’re rather unbelievable–but even that wasn’t enough to defeat the mighty Guangdong Southern Tigers.  Aaron Brooks led Guangdong in scoring with 21, and James Singleton did 20/17 for ‘em.

Zhejiang 100, Jilin 90: Cartier Martin and JR Smith put on one of the finest shows I’ve seen all season long with 27 and 17 points respectively in the first half alone.  It was an eight-point Zhejiang lead at that point, and it was going to take a repeat performance from Cartier to keep Jilin in the game.  He scored another 20 in the second half to bring his total to 47, but he didn’t shoot as well (10-13 in the first half!) and Zhejiang ran away with it in the end.  Jilin did get as close as three in the fourth quarter after falling back by 15 in the third.  JR Smith made his first 10 shots but struggled down the stretch.  His 36 points came on 11-22, meaning he missed 11 of his last 12 shots.  Josh Boone put up 25/16 for Zhejiang… he also came up with a big poster dunk that made it a five-point game with just a minute or two to play.  It was essentially the dagger.

Liaoning 103, Bayi 84: The Bayi Rockets could really use a few Houston Rockets, or maybe even some Rio Grande Valley Vipers.  Wang Zhizhi and friends drop to 6-8 with this loss despite a game-high 33 points from De Lehei.

Shanghai 96, Beijing 87: What the hell?  A 13-game win steak followed by losses to Foshan and Shaghai, who have a combined 10 victories on the season (not including the ones over Beijing).  Doesn’t make much sense to me, but that’s how the cookie has crumbled for the Ducks.  Marbury clunked six of seven threes.  Mike Harris had 21/13.
