Zhejiang Guangsha has won each of the last four meetings against Nanjing Tongxi, which includes a 26-point victory in the last meeting in January of this year. The last time Nanjing Tongxi beat Zhejiang Guangsha was in December of 2018.
Nanjing Tongxi wasn't played good basketball the last time we saw them, losing four of their last five games and allowing 100-plus points in nine of their last 10 games. Zhejiang Guangsha was in terrific form the last time we saw them, which included dropping 132 points against this very Nanjing Tongxi squad in their last time out. While it's been a while since we've seen these teams play, it's hard not to side with Zhejiang Guangsha, especially when you throw in the one-sided history between these two clubs.
I'd back Zhejiang Guangsha and whatever the line ends up being.
