Hong Kong Flying Dragons' disastrous run in the Chinese Basketball Association first division league continued as they suffered a 101-92 defeat by Liaoning Panpan Hunters in Shenzhen - their their ninth successive loss. Coach Li Ren, who decided to stay on after threatening to quit earlier, will be under greater pressure to record their first win in the 14-team league when his team, led by former NBA centre Sharone Wright and former ABA player Willie Mitchell, visit reigning champions the Shanghai Sharks on Wednesday. They lost 109-104 in their opening game to the Beijing Ducks last month but it has been all downhill since.
