84 to 80, the Chinese men's basketball team beat the Hornets today and finally won the first victory in the NBA Summer League. Although the victory is gratifying, it can't hide the embarrassing situation. That is, the Chinese men's basketball team may not be able to get the strongest lineup to play in the local basketball world.
This time in the NBA Summer League, the main task of the Chinese men's basketball team is to run the team and select a 12-man roster for the basketball World Cup. From the first game, losing 41 points, to the second game, losing 17 points, and then to the third game, winning 4 points. The Chinese men's basketball team is constantly adapting to the NBA summer connection strength, and the performance is getting better and better. But for head coach Li Nan, the current warm-up match is not very important. The key is whether he can match the 12 "weapons" of the World Cup as soon as possible. It is a pity that Li Nan has a lot of problems. One of the main factors is that the team is greatly affected by injuries. His plans for the formation of troops and the plans of the team members are often disrupted.

Sixteen players came to Las Vegas. In the three games, Li Nan also kept changing the lineup. Every game also arranged as many players to play as possible. The purpose of the training team was achieved, but there was no target. Sexually smashed the skills and tactics, because each game has a different team members, not to mention the team's core Yi Jianlian also suffered from injuries in Los Angeles. Before the game, when talking about how to adjust the third game, Li Nan is also somewhat helpless: "The team still has injuries, it is difficult to get the strongest lineup. But we will hope that through this series, all players will get exercise. From the confrontation and speed of the game, including the attitude and understanding of the game, let the players have an upgrade."
