Beijing time on October 19th, in the first round of the 2020-2021 CBA regular season, Beijing Enterprises lost 83-99 to the Shandong team. North Controls coach Marbury spoke about the performance of new aid Li Gen in an interview after the game.
Marbury: "We didn't play well tonight. On the other hand, the Shandong team played harder and harder than us. We didn't do well on the defensive end, and we didn't get the rebounds well. Then we have to go back. Continue to summarize and see how we can play more unitedly and more like a whole. We all hesitated to play in the first game, but as the season progresses, we will slowly regain our form."
Li Gen played 33 minutes in his debut on behalf of Beijing Control, scoring 14 points on 5 of 17 shooting. Marbury commented: "Of course this is not his best performance, but as a coach I really like his aggressiveness on the offensive end and the hard work he has to kill to the basket."
