hēi ，gērmen ，zuótiān de nánlán yàjǐnsài juésài kàn le ma ？zhōngguó duì tài bàng le ，zhōngyú náhuí le Yàzhōu guànjūn ，nádào le zhí tōng lǐyuē de rùchǎngquàn ！
Hey, buddy, did you see the mens' final of the FIBA Asia Championship? The Chinese team was so great, finally bringing home the Asian championship title, securing themselves a ticket direct to Rio!
kàn le ，kàn de wǒ lǎo jīdòng le ，hǎo jiǔ méiyǒu kàndào zhōngguó duì yǒu zhème hānchànglínlí de biǎoxiàn le ，zuótiān bǐsài de jīngcǎi chéngdù wánquán bùyàyú yī chǎng NBA jìhòusài 。
I saw it, I got quite over-excited watching it, it's been so long since I've seen the Chinese team playing with such abandon and effort. Yesterday's match was the equal of an NBA playoff.
zhǐ kěxī xiànzài háishì NBA de xiūsàiqī ，dōu méiyǒu zhèngshì bǐsài kàn ，wúliáo le zhǐnéng qù fānfān shàng sàijì bǐsài de lùxiàng ，wàngméizhǐkě yīxià 。
It's just a pity that it is the NBA off-season and there's no official games to watch, so when bored, one can only look through recordings of matches from the previous season, to stem the hunger.
duìle ，shuōdào shàng sàijì de bǐsài ，wǒ jìyìyóuxīn de háishì xībù bàn juésài ，xiūsīdūn Huǒjiànduì hé Luòshānjī kuàichuánduì de nà yī lún jìhòusài 。
Yes, talking of the previous season, the Western Conference semifinals are still fresh in my memory, the postseason series of matches between the Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Clippers.
