Wu Yongsheng coming off the bench chipped five straight points and veteran Zeng Lingxu added another shot, extending Xinjiang’s lead to 34-16.
Sun Yue once cut down the deficit to 12 for the Royal Fighters, but Xinjiang then responded with a stunning 23-2 run, capped by rookie Ezmet Tursun’s easy basket, sending the Xinjiang bench into a frenzy.
Xinjiang finished with 65 percent shooting from the field in the first half and won over 34-9 on rebounds.
Xinjiang then used another 8-0 run after the break to make it 76-35 in the third and put the game out of reach.
Tang Caiyu and Qi Lin each got 24 points for Xinjiang. The elite duo combined for 12 3-pointers while Yu Dehao handed over 14 assists.
