QINGDAO, China, June 26 (Xinhua) -- Kyle Fogg got 24 points, five assists and four steals on Friday, helping the Beijing Royal Fighters edge the Shanxi Loongs 106-98 in the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) league.

In the first quarter, both sides played good offense and made several fast breaks.

A series of jump shots and layups from the Royal Fighters' overseas players widened their lead to ten points in the second quarter, giving them a 58-47 advantage at the end of the first half.

With three straight Yuan Shuai three-pointers, Shanxi tied the scores in the third quarter. However, the Royal Fighters got five points more to regain the lead after a time-out by coach Stephon Marbury.

Shanxi tried hard to come back into the game in the last quarter, only to see the Royal Fighters guard Fogg making a shot from downtown to maintain their advantage.

The Royal Fighters have now won three in a row and will face the Jilin Northeast Tigers on Sunday. Enditem
