On October 17, the new CBA season officially started. Defending champion
In this game, although the Guangdong players received last season's championship ring, they had no morale. The Guangdong team fell behind by 34 points at most in the game.
At 9 minutes and 11 seconds before the end of the game, Cheng Shuipeng forced a breakthrough to make another
From the statistical point of view, the Guangdong team lags behind in the five statistics of rebounds, assists, field goal percentage, three-point field goal percentage, and free throw percentage. Among them, the Guangdong team trailed by 40-46 in rebounds.
In terms of three-pointers, Guangdong scored 7 of 25, shooting only 28%. Zhejiang made 17 of 30 shots and the hit rate was as high as 56.7%. Among them, only Wu Qian shot 6 of 10 from beyond the three-point line.
Guangdong's inside defense has become a fatal hidden danger. The two blue collars, Su Wei and Zeng Fanri, are obviously far from enough to make up for Yi Jianlian's deterrent under the basket. Without Yi Jianlian, the Zhejiang team is crazy about Guangdong inside this game. This is most intuitively reflected in free throws. Zhejiang made 52 free throws, hit 43, and the free throw percentage reached 82.7%. The Guangdong team made 22 free throws and made 71% of their field goals. In other words, only in free throws, Guangdong lost 21 points.
Not only was the Guangdong team unable to defend the three-pointer, but the inside line was also suddenly turned into a sieve. How can they not lose?
