Sichuan needed a win on Sunday to force a deciding game on Tuesday. They were doing enough to hold a lead behind brilliant efforts from Han Xu and Li Meng, but Yang Liwei and Shen Yi helped Inner Mongolia fight back and clinch the championship with an 87-86 win. They denied the public a chance to see one more titanic clash between the teams, but quickly realized all of their ambitions a short time after joining the league.
