The second game of the series took the teams all the way across the country to Urumqi. Many of the same storylines carried over from the first game. Beijing has now made a habit of stifling opposing post players. Peng Shiqing’s shooting kept Xinjiang in the game again, but this time Beijing built a strong lead over the course of the game and won 75-66. Gao Song and Sylvia Fowles led the way in the win. It was an important win for Beijing as they now know that they will get another game at home. The teams will meet again in Urumqi on Saturday as the hosts will really be looking for a way to get Tina Charles back to the level at which she played during the regular season.
