The Guangsha Lions would be at home facing the Xinjiang Flying Tigers. The visitors are considered one of the favourites to win the title this year, and have started strong this season, and would look to maintain their perfect start to the campaign.

Pick things up in the third -- and Darius Adams is able to get to the cup for the And1, and that gives the Flying Tigers a 5-point edge.

But Guangsha trim the margin to two late in the final Q. The Lions then have the chance to go ahead when Hu Jinqiu is fouled hard in the paint.

Xinjiang's Zhou Qi is given a flagrant foul. Hu is carried off the court due to injury, and Wang Zheng steps in to take the free-throws.

Wang makes two out of four to help the hosts tie it at 111.

Courtney Fortson cuts to the rack and banks it in to hand Guangsha a two-point cushion with just over one minute to go.

But Adams forces the hosts into three consecutive fouls, including on this three-point attempt. The American-born Bulgarian guard makes all seven free-throws to finish with 41 points on the night. The Flying Tigers edge the Lions 118-113.

Zhou Peng is back from injury for the Guangdong Southern Tigers.

The eight-time champions hosting the Jilin Northeast Tigers. Carlos Boozer hits to give Guangdong a 6-point lead. The former NBA'er would have 17.

Donald Sloan finds Gao Shang for the fast break hoop. The Southern Tigers lead by eight midway through the second.

Malcolm Thomas is able to trim the deficit. The jab-step then the jumper and it is a six-point game.

Zhong Cheng sinks the triple and ties it at 42 just before half-time.

But the Southern Tigers take over in the third quarter. Sloan scores on the step-back triple, he is on his way to 23 points on the night.
