Six games, six wins, and six dominant performances into the Chinese Basketball Association’s (CBA) coveted post-season tournament, and American Mike Harris and his Blue Whales are just four wins away from the improbable. One of the leagues worst teams only a year ago, Sichuan is re-writing history winning the clubs first playoff game, first playoff series, and making their first ever trip to the finals. NBA veterans Lester Hudson, Shavlik Randolph, and the top seeded Liaoning Hunters are now all that remains between Harris and one of the few Championship trophies he has yet to capture.
Putting up playoff averages of over 33 points and 13 rebounds a contest while shooting better than 68% from the field, 40% from 3, and 90% from the free-throw line, Harris is torching rival defenders and appears to be getting better literally every time he touches the floor. With no sign of stopping or even slowing down for that matter, the 32-year-old American seems poised to secure his third overall league championship in the last 4 years. Stay tuned as the legend continues Friday night in Game 1.
