Down by 14 in the 4th quarter, 38 year old CBA legend Stephon Marbury took over, hitting one clutch shot after another to help Beijing get a must-have win in game 4 of the CBA Finals and tie the series up 2-2. Marbury finished the game with 36 points, 7 assists and ended up on the highlight of the night – although he would probably like to forget about it and his (praise worthy) block attempt on 7’1 Han DeJun aka The Chinese Shaq.
In Game 3, Marbury scored 42 points but his night was ruined by a game-winner by CBA MVP Lester Hudson who also had a triple double in the game and 41 points in GM2.
GM5 should be another classic and I’m expecting another big game from the 6 x CBA All-Star with 2 championships under his belt. If Marbury and Beijing can pull off winning this series, they will be back-to-back champions.
