Today (here should be yesterday), this seasons CBA regular season starts the final round of competition. In a contest concerning the seats of the top four teams, the Liaoning team, which wins, can lock in the top four, with a 126-79 victory over the Sichuan team to get the last seat in the top four.
So far, all the top four regular season teams have been formed, namely Guangdong team, Xinjiang team, Beijing team and Liaoning team. These four teams will be free in the first round of the playoffs.
After the second round of CBA, Liaoning teams performance was not stable. The team lost three games in the first four games after the second round, and the ranking also dropped to the eighth place for a time. The poor record also directly led to the departure of Guo Shiqiang, the teams meritorious coach.
At that time, although the Liaoning team had launched foreign aid Mayo, but because he had not fully integrated into the team, the help brought by it was quite limited, so the Liaoning team could only rely on Guo Allen and Han Dejun to support.
However, after new coach Yang Ming took office, Liaoning teams achievements have improved obviously. After losing to Zhejiang at the end of June, Liaoning team started a winning streak. They won 12 games in a row, overtaking Guangxia and taking the last seat in the top four.
In this winning streak, Mayo continued to give a stable play. So far this season, Mayo has played 15 games for Liaoning team, with 29 points per game. With his outstanding performance in recent years, he was officially selected as the player of the month by CBA.
What makes Liaoning fans more gratified is the improvement of Guo Allens state. In todays match against Sichuan team, it was yuan Tangwen, who had a good performance before, and Guo Ellen taught the little brother a good lesson.
Alan Guo was almost omnipotent in this game. After only playing for 22 minutes, he got 32 points, 3 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals. Yuan Tangwen, on the other hand, was completely lost. He not only failed to score a point, but also made six departures after only 14 minutes.
Guos performance before this is not stable, which also makes him subject to certain doubts, but from last nights game, we can see that Guos ability is still at the top of the domestic guard.
Guo Allen and Han Dejun are in good condition, and the integration of foreign aid Mayo is also smooth. Liaoning team has got rid of the low state at the beginning of the second round. After locking in the first four, Liaoning team will get more sufficient recovery time in the first round of the playoffs, and they have the ability to break hands with any strong team.
