BEIJING, Dec.3 (Xinhua) -- Andray Blatche contributed 43 points to gave Xinjiang a boost in their 109-108 home victory over Beijing, while Liaoning recorded their 14th straight win after beating Guangsha 112-107 in the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) league on Wednesday.
Blatche almost broke his knee after scored the first two points for the host Kevin Strootman AS Roma Jersey , but the former NBA Brooklyn Nets forward chose to stay on the court and helped Xinjiang establish a 18-8 advantage.
Beijing took the lead at the end of the first half 48-47.
The game suspended for around 10 minutes due to the chaos after Blatche was fouled by Zhang Songtao when Beijing outscored Xinjiang 86-79. Then Xinjiang stormed a 10-0 run before the game became a two-man-show.
Blatche grabbed 43 points and 15 rebounds for the team but his turnover with 9.4 seconds on the clock again put Xinjiang in danger while they led by only 109-108.
After Beijing's timeout, Stephen Marbury, who scored a personal season-high 46 points tonight, almost made a turnover when he passed the ball to teammates but had to see Xinjiang win by an one point margin.
Liaoning remain unbeaten after 14 rounds of the CBA league as they beat Guangsha tonight at home 112-107.
Liaoning's Lester Hudson nearly made another triple-double with 40 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists.
