MACAU --- Guangzhou is out to sweep the Asia League's 2018 season.

After capturing the Super 8 championship back in July, the Long Lions set their sights on the Terrific 12 title Sunday.

Guangzhou escaped perhaps the toughest group in the Terrific 12, beating Korea's Mobis Phoebus and Japan's Chiba Jets in preliminary play.

The Long Lions then beat the Seoul Samsung Thunders in a Super 8 Finals rematch to move on to the title round.

Standing in Guangzhou's way are the Ryukyu Golden Kings from the B.League.

Ryukyu is dominating the Terrific 12 so far, beating its three opponents by an average of 20.3 points.

Tip off for the Terrific 12 Finals is set at 7:00 p.m. Sunday at the Studio City Event Center here.
