The finals started on Wednesday as Guangdong looked to start fast both in the series as they host the first two games and in the game as they knew that the rules would favor Bayi in a close game late. Nneka Ogwumike was critical early and Li Yueru helped the hosts with their advantage in the paint, building up a big enough margin that the visitors could not recover, falling 89-63. Guangdong will also host the next game on Friday and will be looking to follow the same blueprint for success.
