ZHUJI, China, Jan. 21 (Xinhua) -- Jiang Yuxing's clutch shot in the dying seconds helped the Jilin Northeast Tigers beat the Zhejiang Lions 105-104 on Thursday, ending their opponents' four-game winning streak in the CBA.

With just 33 seconds remaining and the two side drawing on the scoreboard, Dai Huaibo of Jilin grabbed an offensive rebound, and Jiang made one of two free throws to finish the game.

Jilin took the upper hand from the start and widened the gap to double digits. Zhejiang, however, bounced back, thanks to Feng Xin and Hu Jinqiu's outstanding performance, narrowing the gap to six points, before the score seesawed in the second half.

Dominique Jones scored a game-high 35 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists for Jilin. Jiang added 24 points, while Ding Haoran pocketed 14 points and seven rebounds.

Coaches of both sides agreed that it was a wonderful and tight game. "They did a good job on defense today. I am satisfied that we fought to the end," said Jilin head coach Wang Han. Enditem
