The CBA playoffs are still in progress. The four teams that entered the semi-finals have confirmed three seats, namely Zhejiang, Liaoning and Shenzhen. Among them, Zhejiang beat Guangzhou 2-0, Liaoning beat Beijing 2-0, and Shenzhen won by lying down. Because Shanghai was deprived of its ranking and competition qualification, Shenzhen became the first team to advance to the semi-finals. Now, there is only one last place to be decided, that is, the group of Guangdong team and Guangsha team, with a big score of 1-1 draw. The final game will decide who can advance and then play against Liaoning team.
By the time of the semi-final, the opponent of Zhejiang team is Shenzhen team. Although both teams are strong teams, it seems that there are not many things to watch, and it gives people the feeling that there is little suspense. In terms of popularity of the two teams, although Zhejiang is the top team, it is not as good as Shenzhen, which ranks fourth. The basketball atmosphere in Zhejiang is not as good as that in Guangdong, and the fan base is less. Moreover, Zhejiang team and Guangsha team have long been competing in the same city. In Hangzhou, more fans regard Guangsha as the home team, but the real Zhejiang team is still slightly inferior. Therefore, this group of matchups will not attract particularly high attention, and there is not much topic heat between the two teams.
The other group is between Liaoning team and Guangdong team/Guangsha team, which is more interesting. If the opponent of Liaoning team is Guangdong team, the heat will be full directly, because the two teams have the largest fan base in CBA, far exceeding other teams, which can be seen from the annual All-Star voting. Moreover, Liaoning and Guangdong, as the traditional strong teams of CBA, have attracted much attention in every previous duel, and fans will also argue with each other to cheer for their respective home teams.
If Guangsha team reached the semi-finals, it would be a continuation of the frontier. Last year’s finals were between Liaoning team and Guangsha team. Although Guangsha team, which was short of major generals, lost, the fighting spirit of fighting for the last bullet moved all the fans. This season, Hu Jinqiu returned, although the luck was unlucky, Cummings, a small foreign aid, was injured again, and Zhu Junlong also played in doubt. However, the strength of the team is obviously higher than that of last year’s finals, and the team will definitely give everything and aim at revenge. The goal of the Liaoning team is to protect its glory and strive to defend its title. From the match between the two teams this season, we can know how intense the game is. It is completely hand-to-hand combat. No matter whether you win or lose, you will lose your skin.
As for the final list of the semi-finals, we still need to wait until the end of the game tomorrow night. However, judging from the strength of the team and the situation at home and away, Guangdong team is more likely to advance, and it is not difficult for Guangsha team to win the game. Let’s wait and see.
