News: Guangdong Chinese champion again (Notícia: Guangdong de novo campeão chinês)

For the sixth time in the last seven years, Guangdong Southern Tigers claimed the Chinese CBA title. The champions faced Xinjiang again in the playoff finals and won game 5 103 to 94, ending the series 4-1 like last season.
Zhu Fangyu paced the winners with 29 points, followed by Wang Zheng with a double-double (14 points and 10 rebounds) and Zhou Peng and David Harrison (15 boards) with 12 points apiece. For the runner-up, Charles Gaines netted a team-high 30 points, while Co Tal (four steals) and Myron Allen (six steals) added 17 each.
The game might have been the last one played by veteran Mengke Bateer (Xinjiang), who at 34 is contemplating retirement.

(Pela sexta vez nos últimos sete anos, os Guangdong Southern Tigers proclamaram-se campeões da CBA chinesa. Os campeões defrontaram novamente o Xinjiang nas finais dos "playoffs" e venceram o quinto jogo por 103-94, estabelecendo a série em 4-1, tal como na época passada.
Zhu Fangyu comandou o vencedor com 29 pontos, seguido de Wang Zheng com um duplo-duplo (14 pontos e 10 ressaltos) e Zhou Peng e David Harrison (15 ressaltos) com 12 pontos cada. Do lado do Xinjiang, Charles Gaines foi o melhor marcador da equipa com 30 pontos, enquanto que Co Tal (quatro roubos de bola) e Myron Allen (seis roubos de bola) acrescentaram 17 cada um.
O encontro poderá ter sido o último do veterano Mengke Bateer (Xinjiang), que, aos 34 anos, pondera a retirada.)
