With 6 minutes left in the third quarter, Zheng Qilong broke through to the basket on the right side, and Lin Wickham stood outside the circle to make an offensive foul. At this time, Zhao Tailong assisted in the jump and landed with his back flat.
Slow motion shows that Lin Wickham touched Zhao Tailong who jumped in the air when he fell to the ground, causing Zhao Tailong to slip and fall on his back. He was lying on the ground for a long time and could not get up, and then he was lifted out of the field by a stretcher.
In the first quarter, Wu Guanxi, the core of the Jiangsu team, was also crippled in defense. Both top-paid players suffered injuries in a game.
