Fadi El Khatib had an impressive final outing for the hosts, registering 30 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists but it was not the result he would have liked in his last game for Lebanon.

Norvel Pelle dominated defensively again for Lebanon, finishing with 8 blocks to go with his 8 points and 7 rebounds.

Three players, Xiaoyu Liu, Qian Wu and Dejun Han, led China with 13 points each.
