BEIJING, Jan. 2 (Xinhua) -- Quincy Douby showed no mercy on Marcus-less Shanxi Zhongyu as he swept 75 points, the highest score in CBA franchise history, to help Zhejiang Chouzhou win 154-129 at home on Wednesday.
The former record belonged to Andre Emmett, who scored 71 points for Shandong Gold vs. Jiangsu on Mar. 7, 2010.
Douby finished with 25 of 38 shots, including nine 3-pointers, as well as 16 of 20 on the free throw line, He opened the game with a 3-pointer as Zhejiang built a 36-25 lead and never fell down thereafter.
He was substituted with 3:17 remaining in the final quarter, leaving a crazy night with 75 points among "MVP" shouts from home crowd. His dominant play made people guess whether he would have beaten Kobe Bryant's 81 points in 2005-2006 NBA season if Douby had been left on court to the very end.
However, this game wasn't about Douby only. Charles Gaines, currently the only foreign player of Shanxi as new signing Nate Mills will unite with the team on Thursday, scored 60 points and grabbed 29 rebounds.
Marcus Williams, the former top scorer of Shanxi, was tested positive for marijuana to record the first doping case in China's professional basketball league. He was banned for six months by the national basketball governing body on Monday, meaning that he will sit out the rest of this season.
Defending champions Beijing Ducks secured the leading position in the season's first half with a 103-99 victory over Bayi Fubang.
Randolph Morris, who celebrated his 27-year-old birthday on Wednesday, had 22 points and 10 rebounds for Beijing.
Stephon Marbury and Zhu Yanxi contributed 24 and 22 respectively.
On Tuesday, Guangdong Hongyuan bounced back from a 10-point deficit to hold off Qingdao Doublestar 110-105. Yi Jianlian finished with 31 points and 14 rebounds. Zhu Fangyu scored 16 points, becoming the first player to have reached 9,000 points in CBA.
Tracy Mcgrady of Qingdao missed this match due to injury. Chris Daniels had a double-double performance of 34 points and 11 rebounds.
