Kyle Fogg had a game-high 27 points on his debut for the Liaoning Flying Leopards, helping his new side to a 112-83 victory over the Nanjing Monkey Kings in the CBA on Sunday.

The game was not as a one-sided game as the points showed. Nanjing made a good start with a two-point lead in the first quarter. Liaoning then overcame their opponents 53-43 by the interval.

Six Liaoning players scored double-digits, while only three Nanjing players did likewise, allowing Liaoning to hold the lead for the rest of the game. Liaoning's O. J. Mayo added 20 points and Han Dejun had 16 points. Arnett Moultrie had a team-high 20 points and 12 rebounds for Nanjing.

"The whole team was very helpful for my arrival. I hope to improve every day and lead the team forward," said Fogg.

Meanwhile, the Xinjiang Flying Tigers enjoyed a 112-98 win over the Jiangsu Dragons. Though Jiangsu also led the game by the end of the first period, Xinjiang smashed Jiangsu in the following stages. Despite his team's loss, Dezmine Wells recorded a game-high 38 points for Jiangsu, while Zhou Qi added a team-high 25 points for Xinjiang.

In other games, Jilin beat Shandong 108-102, the Qingdao Eagles edged Tianjin 122-115, and the Beijing Royal Fighters thrashed the Guangzhou Loong Lions 107-91.
