Liaoning thought that they would have the advantage after bringing home a lead for the second game of the series on Tuesday. Guandong quickly wiped out that margin with a big first quarter before the hosts could cut the margin to three points at halftime and then one point after three quarters. The visitors did enough in the final quarter to win the game 74-66, taking the series by five points. Kelsey Bone and Yelena Leuchanka each put up big numbers for their teams. Bayi also had to feel like they could still take the series at home, but Beijing jumped out to an enormous halftime lead and coasted in the second half to win the game 81-56 and take the series 154-123. The two winners now join the top teams from the last stage in one group while the two losers join the rest of the teams to form the other group. Action resumes for all teams on Thursday.
