The season has seen a heavyweight showdown in the finale of the second phase of the CBA regular season, with a vicious battle between defending champions Liaoning and favourites Guangdong. On the eve of the match between Guangdong and Liaoning, the overall strength of the two sides and the prediction of victory and defeat have already touched the hearts of fans. Many fans also analyzed the difference between victory and defeat, and believed that the core of the Liaoning team, Guo Allen, and the main player of the Guangdong team, Yi Jianlian, were not the key to the Liaoning-Guangdong battle. The one who can really win the battle of Liaoyue and win the balance is most likely Du Feng's surprise soldier and Yang Ming's trump card.
In fact, the current squad gap between Liaoning and Guangdong is very small. In the injury situation, the Liaoning team lacked Han Dejun, the first core of the interior line, and the dominance of the penalty area was greatly reduced. However, it is not easy for the Guangdong team to defeat the Liaoning team with Yi Jianlian, Hamilton, Zhang Hao, Zhang Mingchi and others, because the strength of Li Xiaoxu, Liu Yanyu and Sampson on the inside cannot be underestimated. On the other hand, Zhao Rui, the black and white core of Guangdong's backfield, was also absent due to injury, but the Liaoning team's guard line did not have a great advantage. Because, the rise of Hu Mingxuan and Xu Jie and Zeng Maozhou's immediate combat power are the guarantee of the Guangdong team's backfield.
Therefore, the biggest attraction of the Liaoyue War is most likely to be who is better than Du Feng's surprise soldier or Yang Ming's trump card. Under the guidance of Du Feng, the surprise soldier of the Guangdong team to the Liaoning team was Wang Xinkai. And Yang Ming's guide also has the trump card of the Guangdong team, that is, Yan Shouqi. The Southern Kai Emperor, the Northern Hand Emperor, this is the biggest attraction of the Liao-Guangdong War.
Wang Xinkai's performance in the second stage is worthy of recognition, because Guangdong's ability to recover the championship has a lot to do with Kaihuang's recovery. In the first stage of the Guangdong team, Wang Xinkai was almost squeezed out of the rotation, and the Guangdong team's record was also dismal. In the second stage, the Guangdong team played a better limelight than the Zhejiang team, and Wang Xinkai led a group of substitutes to play the performance of the whole people, which is also Du Feng's most proud existence. In the game of the Liaoning team, Wang Xinkai played a very unreasonable three-pointer in the first quarter, completely tearing apart the Liaoning team's defense and the key to winning. Therefore, Wang Xinkai's outbreak directly determined whether the Guangdong team could slaughter the Liaoning team again.
Yan Shouqi is the key to Liaoning's game-breaking, which is more likely to determine the game than Wang Xinkai. Although Yan Shouqi has been questioned by the outside world during the Liaoning team's match, his personal performance has not been able to improve the combat effectiveness of the Liaoning team's bench much. However, the performance of many core players in the Liaoning team is relatively stable, whether it is Allen Guo, Zhao Jiwei, Ferg, Zhang Zhenlin, Li Xiaoxu who starts, or Sampson, Cong Mingchen, Liu Yanyu and others who rotate the lineup. The gap between the Liaoning team's starter and the Guangdong team is not large, and whether the rotation lineup can suppress the Guangdong team depends on Yan Shouqi's performance. After all, in the games that Yan Shouqi can play, the Liaoning team basically maintains an undefeated record.
I have to say that the biggest highlight of the Liaoyue showdown is not the core figures of both sides such as Allen Guo and Yi Jianlian. Guangdong team Kaihuang PK Liaoning team hand emperor will be the biggest attraction, which will be the highlight of Wolong vs. Phoenix Hatchling.
