Netease Sports reported on October 21:
Another CBA regular season game tonight,
Shandong team coach Gong Xiaobin thought when commenting on the game that it would be a pity for the team to lose this game. "Before the game, we considered the gap with the Liaoning team, especially in the back line. Now as us, there is only Xiao Gao as a guard. The other guards are still relatively young compared with the Liaoning team. They lack control of rhythm and organization." Gong Xiaobin Said that the Shandong team did a good job in this game, but gave Guo Ailun too many opportunities to rush to the basket on the inside. Although the foreign aid Harris scored 43 points, but the degree of tacit understanding with other players is still lacking, which is the next problem the team has to solve.
Shandong team defender Gao Shi Iwamoto played well against his old club Liaoning team, scoring 25 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Gong Xiaobin praised Gao Shiyan’s performance. He said that Gao Shiyan is now the core of the team’s back line. “In the face of the parent team, he has shown the professionalism of a professional player and is more daring to fight, including against his former teammates. Many young players on the team should be an example. Of course, he will continue to work hard in the future."
Gao Shiyan also commented on the game at the press conference. He said that the Shandong team has a chance to win the game. "But it did fall in physical fitness in the final defense. Breakthrough prevention and pick-and-roll prevention were relatively poor. We are overwhelmed. Next, we must sum up and play well the next game.” When talking about the feelings of playing against the old team Liaoning team, Gao Shiyan first thanked the Shandong team for the trust he gave him, and he said: “To me It's just a normal regular season, and I didn't think much about it. No matter who the teammate is, he will fight only when he is on the court, and fight every round well."
