Beijing looked to end the series and retain the title on Thursday by dominating Bayi early again, winning 96-77 and celebrating in front of the home fans. Sylvia Fowles was a big part of giving her team the insurmountable lead again as she was named Finals MVP. Sun Mengxin led the visitors, who had a magical postseason run before running into the league’s most consistent team. While the showcasing of domestic talent on the military teams made for interesting storylines late in the season, the playoffs ended up being predictable once some of the other teams could no longer rely on their foreign stars.
