To the 2nd quarter, Jiangsu kept its momentum and broke Shanghai's attempts to come back.

Jiangsu kept the lead and even increased it to 10 points, 49-39, at the end of the first half.

Shanghai failed to stop Jiangsu's offensive firepower in the second half. Meng Da scored and Jiangsu continued to roll.

And his team showed its nerve with a third-quarter buzzer-beater. Jiangsu's Tang Zhendong hit as time expired, making it 80-59.

Shanghai made a last chance bid to cut into the deficit momentum at the start of the 4th quarter, but Jiangsu stayed in control.
