However, Britain fought back and levelled the scores within three minutes, Joel Freeland with two scores and Reinking a three-pointer.

The rest of the quarter remained close until GB went on a scoring streak, and the teams went in with the score 27-15 to the hosts.

Team GB pulled into a 35-22 lead in the second quarter before a mini fightback from the Chinese saw them pull back to 39-29, but further clinical finishing from the Brits gave them a 46-31 lead at the half.
