The team China is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the team Australia at 11:30 P.M. on August 17, 2017 in Zouk Mosbeh, Lebanon.
The second day of the 2017 FIBA Asia Cup Quarterfinals round resumes today and for its opening game it will be the China and Australia.
In the past FIBA games, team China was famously known of its “Walking Great Wall” which features its at least 7-footer players.
In the current tournament, it seems that they’re making a new brand for their basketball and that is “Slow-Star-Finish-Strong” kind of game.
Since its opening game until the Quarterfinals qualifier, China appeared playing slow at the first half but then in the second half they showed to their opponents why they are the current defending champions of FIBA Asia Cup.
In their last outing against team Syria, once again China demonstarted that new mantra they’ve developed.
The Syrians looked like they will be advancing in the next round after they buried China with a lead as much as 15 points in the third quarter.
However, the chinese squad bounced back in the winning period behind their hot shooting from beyond the three-point area.
Dejun Han was China’s top performer with his 14 points and 6 rebounds.
Group D’s best team, Australia shown no signs of slowing down as they took care their preliminary round assignments. The Aussie Boomers averaged 32.3 winning margin in their bracket while 40.5 in their last two outings.
This game can be considered as another version of 2017 FIBA Asia Cup finals.
