QUOTABLE

China Daily (Canada) - - CHINA -

“Ev­ery­one wants to win the game. If a player doesn’t have a strong will to win or plays like a gen­tle­man on the court, he could never be a great player. So I hope ev­ery­one can un­der­stand what he was do­ing to­day. He just wants to win the game for the team.”

head coach of Chi­nese Bas­ket­ball As­so­ci­a­tion’s Bei­jing Ducks, showed sup­port for his guard Stephon Mar­bury, who was ejected in the third quar­ter af­ter clash­ing with a player from the Shan­dong Li­ons on Wed­nes­day. It was Mar­bury’s first game af­ter be­ing side­lined for 73 days with an in­jury. Bei­jing won 99-95, and Mar­bury scored nine points and had seven as­sists.
