In the second round of the 2020-21 CBA regular season, both Beijing Shougang and Zhejiang Men's Basketball Team of the all-China class competed. Zhejiang Men's Basketball continued its fiery state of beating the Guangdong Men's Basketball team. The score was opened in the first half. In the second half against Beijing Shougang's counterattack, the Zhejiang team finally won the game 92-75, harvesting two consecutive victories in the new season. This high-profile offensive and defensive battle was finally won by the Zhejiang team’s sharper offense, and Beijing Shougang also exposed many problems in the game. Their offseason reinforcement did not show the expected level. The championship is still far behind.
In addition to losing, Shougang player Zhai Xiaochuan's actions in an attack also caused controversy. When the game was about 4 minutes and 25 seconds left in the third quarter, Zhai Xiaochuan broke through the center with the ball and faced Zhang Dayu's defense. Strong, but in order to find a suitable layup space, Zhai Xiaochuan made a kick and kicked Zhang Dayu’s crotch. Because Zhang Dayu was much taller than himself, Zhai Xiaochuan was also afraid of blocking, so he sent the second pass in time. The ball was passed to Fan Ziming at the right basket, who made an easy layup, but Zhang Dayu was already on the floor in pain.
The referee immediately blew the whistle. Because someone fell to the ground due to an injury, they decided to replay the video. From slow motion, Zhai Xiaochuan kicked Zhang Dayu's inner leg with his leg when he took off. Fortunately, he didn't injure the vital part. Otherwise, such a big impact would cause consequences. Unimaginable. After the video playback, the referee whistled that Zhai Xiaochuan violated the body and fouled. Fan Ziming's goal was not counted. Zhejiang team got two free throws and one throw. Then Zhang Dayu made two free throws and Zhejiang team led Beijing team 56-43. New regulations have just been introduced this season to severely attack the opponent's vital parts.
The determination of the action of "digging, hitting, grabbing, pedaling, and stepping on the vital parts of the opposing team member" will directly be disqualified from the competition. Obviously, Zhai Xiaochuan's actions were not intentional and did not injure Zhang Dayu's vital parts, otherwise he Will be expelled from the game directly by seizing power. The most well-known action of kicking the upper leg is the former Shougang foreign aid Marbury. In order to maintain the impact during the layup, and at the same time to open up the opponent to create attacking space for himself, he often raises his leg very high, and often takes the initiative. To kick, Guangdong foreign aid "Little Black Bean" Brooks, Liaoning player Han Dejun were all deeply affected.
We believe that Zhai Xiaochuan did not learn from Marbury, and he has never been known for being dirty, but in the future, remember to avoid similar moves in training. It is not good to hurt the opponent, and this is a move that this season is a hard hit.
