On October 18th, the new CBA season will continue.
Last season, Liu Zheng was the absolute main force in the Guangsha team, averaging 12.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game. The Shanghai team has a very strong recruitment force during the offseason. In addition to signing Fredette and Dengmeng, the two top foreign players, they also introduced powerful players such as Liu Zheng, Kolan Bek and He Zhongda. This season is quite worth looking forward to.
In this game, the Guangsha team took the lead to get a 4-0 lead. Liu Zheng was also relentless in the face of his old club, and responded with a three-pointer in the bottom corner. A minute later, Liu Zheng counterattacked one-stop elegant layup and hit again, playing very resolutely.
In the embarrassing situation of double foreign aid scoring zero points in the first quarter, Liu Zheng came forward and became the team's number one scoring point. In the middle of the second quarter, Liu Zheng received a pass from Luo Hanchen and hit a three-pointer. Two minutes later, Liu Zheng forced a kill and made two free throws. Relying on Liu Zheng's score, Shanghai struggled to chase points.
With 3 minutes and 57 seconds left in the third quarter, Liu Zheng cut in with the ball, half-turned to make a goal. At 2 minutes and 22 seconds, Liu Zheng hit the inside with the ball and challenged Guangsha's young insider Ji Zhuo, causing the opponent's six offenders to leave. Liu Zheng made 2 free throws.
In the last quarter of the game, Liu Zheng's offensive end suddenly lost power. Whether it was a small throw that broke through to the inside or a three-point long shot from the outside, it was all over. With the two offensive cores of Liu Zheng and Fredette unable to score, it is difficult for the Shanghai team to narrow the point gap. The game lost the suspense of winning early. In the last 3 minutes of the game, Liu Zheng was substituted. The Shanghai team finally defeated the Guangsha team 94-122.
