Fueled by Wei's six points in a row, Inner Mongolia widened the gap back to seven points, and they used a 22-13 second quarter to build a 13-point advantage at halftime.

"We had a poor start as our players didn't show enough mentality, but I'm satisfied with the players' performance in the following three quarters," Shaanxi coach Jiang E'Ying commented.
