On April 13th, Beijing time, the CBA playoff semi-finals continued to fight fiercely, in which the Shanghai team lost to Zhejiang Guangsha 93-108, with a total score of 0-1. Although Wang Zhelin made 7 of 13 shots and contributed 15 points and 4 rebounds, he could only accept the defeat because of five premature fouls.
Wang Zhelin, who started the game, scored the first goal of the Shanghai team. It is obvious that the “king” feels very good. However, it is necessary to mark the big foreign aid Okafor of the Guangsha team on the defensive end, which caused Wang Zhelin to be a little tired in the 9 minutes of the first quarter. In the 9 minutes of playing time, Wang Zhelin made no achievements except for 2 points in the opening. As for the defensive end, the “King” was also at a disadvantage in the face of Okafor, who contributed 6 points and 6 rebounds.
With 8 minutes left in the second quarter, Wang Zhelin reappeared. Compared with the first quarter, Wang Zhelin obviously changed his strategy. He chose to “drown” Okafor on offense and reverse the passive situation on both ends of the offense and defense. Unexpectedly, the trick of “King” is very effective.
On the offensive end, Wang Zhelin scored two inside hooks and hit the board. At the same time, his best mid-range shot was also a steady hit. In this quarter, “King” made 3 of 3 shots and contributed 6 points, and although Okafor scored a quasi-double-double of 10 points and 8 rebounds in two quarters, his efficiency was obviously forced to decline because of the need to defend Wang Zhelin.
After the intermission, Wang Zhelin’s hit rate on the offensive end remained above 50%, and the “King” did not fall behind in the PK against Okafor. However, in the third quarter, Wang Zhelin received two fouls too early, which led to his early exit due to four fouls.
In the three quarters, Wang Zhelin contributed 13 points and 4 rebounds. In addition to 4 fouls, the “king” only had 2 free throws in the three quarters. Obviously, Wang Zhelin has obvious shortcomings in the lethality of the penalty area. Fortunately, the Shanghai team controlled the point difference and trailed by 2 points 72-74 in the third quarter.
In the last quarter, the Shanghai team successfully overtook the score, but with 8 minutes and 29 seconds remaining, Wang Zhelin received the fifth foul when defending Okafor and was forced to temporarily substitute. After Wang Zhelin came off, the leading Shanghai team quickly became 10 points behind. When it was still 5 minutes, Wang Zhelin appeared in advance.
After playing, Wang Zhelin scored inside points, but because he was afraid of being sent off for 6 fouls, his role on the offensive end was greatly reduced. In addition, the Shanghai team was more than 10 points behind and urgently needed to catch up. With 78 seconds left, head coach Li Chunjiang simply replaced Wang Zhelin.
