BEIJING, Dec. 6 (Xinhua) -- Shanghai Sharks were the most surprising team in this season's Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) league so far, as they welcomed a road victory over defending champions Guangdong Hongyuan 101-92 on Friday, snapping their nine-game winning streak.

Shanghai's key to win was their foreign duo: Quincy Douby and Darnell Jackson. Douby finished with a game-high 32 points. Jackson added 29 points and seven rebounds.

After Jackson made both free throws to open the game, visitors Shanghai led during most of time since the first quarter. They led by six points into the last quarter, while Guangdong's Zhu Fangyu and Khalif Wyatt made consecutive 3-pointers to help the hosts build a 81-78 lead, their first in the second half.

Tying at 87, Douby scored four points in a row to get the advantage back. With one minute remaining, Jackson made a fast-break layup to secure the victory.

Wyatt scored 27 points for Guangdong. Yi Jianlian contributed 20 points and 13 rebounds.

Randolph Morris scored 32 points, helping visiting Beijing Ducks beat Liaoning Hengye 106-99 to rank second. Former NBA player Damien Wilkins, who replaced injured Stephon Marbury, had 10 points, two rebounds and one assist in his CBA debut.

Beijing led by two points after the third quarter, while extending that to 14 in the fourth, fueled by Zhai Xiaochuan's shining play behind the arc.

Fujian SBS rallied past Foshan Long Lions 98-92. Chinese promising center Wang Zhelin finished with a big double-double of 38 points and 16 rebounds.

In other games, promoted Sichuan Jinqiang lost to Jiangsu Dragons 83-63, Xinjiang Guanghui upset Dongguan Marco Polo 99-86, and Qingdao Doublestars downed Bayi Fubang 102-95.

On Wednesday, Shanxi Fenjiu suffered five-game skid as they lost to Zhejiang Guangsha 126-115, Jilin Northeast Tigers edged past Tianjin Ronggang 102-101, and Shandong Gold crushed over Zhejiang Chouzhou 100-79.
