Jiangsu Dragons 78 – Shanghai Sharks 84: Darnell Jackson Slays Dragons In

Shanghai Sharks 111 – Shanxi Dragons 102: Shanghai Pull Off Smash And Grab Raid In Rare Win At Shanxi

The Shanghai Sharks walked out of Shanxi province with a rare win at an arena they have typically struggled at, thanks in part to the sharp shooting of Von Wafer. The absence of Marcus Williams through injury certainly helped but a win is a win and the Sharks now have three of them whilst the Dragons, soon to relocate to Beijing, are on a 0-4 run and could be a ‘dead pool’ team if this run of form continues.

Sichuan Blue Whale 90 – Shanghai Sharks 96: Darnell Jackson Goes To Work On Brittle Sichuan Frontcourt In Timely Shanghai Win

On a night when the Sharks’ three-point shooting was again subpar at best, Shanghai went back to basics to squeak past Sichuan Blue Whale in Chengdu. Darnell Jackson was large and in charge for the visiting side and his muscle down low was a key factor in picking up a 30 + 13 double-double as the Sharks’ begin the CBA season 2-0 for the first time in several years.

Shanghai 117 – Fujian Sturgeons 113: Wafer and Jackson Guide Sharks To Victory In High Scoring Road Win

A blistering thirty-five point second quarter sent the Sharks on their way to an opening day win against Fujian. The home side saw Wang Zhelin put up 35 +12 but other than himself and Delonte West’s excellent shift (30 points, 12 rebounds, 8 assists and 4 steals), the Sturgeons lacked the firepower to keep up with the Sharks.

Shanghai Sharks Sign Darnell Jackson

The Shanghai Sharks have finalized their overseas roster with the signing of power forward Darnell Jackson, who had recently been released by the Indiana Pacers. The 6″9, 253lb big man is a relatively experienced overseas player, having spent two seasons out of America with BC Donetsk of the Ukranian Super League and the CBA’s very own Xinjiang Tigers.

After four years of college hoops with Kansas, Jackson was picked by Miami with the fifty-second pick in the 2008 NBA Draft. Traded that same day to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Jackson had a handful of appearances with the Cavs during the last two seasons of the LeBron James era. He was last in the NBA in the 2011/12 season, where he played in fifty-nine games for the Sacramento Kings before spending time with the Reno Big Horns in the D-League.
