The two semifinals series continued on Saturday. Beijing wanted to avoid another trip to Urumqi and did so by starting out strong and beating Xinjiang 79-70 to complete the sweep. Glory Johnson did her best for the visitors, but it was not enough as she ended up being an excellent fill-in for the team after they were forced to find a new foreign player. The other series continues to be close, but Jin Jiabao and Shenyang took the lead with another home win 78-72. Bayi will now host on Tuesday as they try to extend their season.
