Two teams who need to win for the ranking fight face off.
Suwon KT and Changwon LG will meet in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot professional basketball regular season game held at Suwon KT Arena on the 29th.
KT was sluggish at the beginning of the season and hovered around the bottom. As a result, a strong solution was made to replace two foreign players at the same time. They rebounded by winning all of their first six games, but ended the first half with a losing streak after that.
In the first game of the second half, he met Seoul Samsung and won, but fell into a losing streak again. After that, they recorded 1 win and 4 losses in 5 matches. However, in the last game, he met and won Goyang Carrot and succeeded in changing the atmosphere. The opponent is LG, who is in second place in the league.
KT coach Seo Dong-cheol, whom we met before the game, said, “Lately, LG has been showing stable performance. It is a team with many strengths. Still, the driving force seems to be defense. This is the team with the fewest goals. There’s also a quicksand. It is important to attack the opponent’s strong defense efficiently. We came out looking for that part together,” he started the interview.
He continued, “The opposing team’s Marey’s inside control is good, and he plays a large role in the attack. I try to block it by putting Prosper first as a match-up. If it matters, I plan to use Jones. But it’s difficult with Jones’ one-on-one defense. That’s why I also prepared an assist defense.”
LG plays a back-to-back game. However, Director Seo was not vigilant. Coach Seo said, “The opponent came from Changwon to play. We may have an advantage physically. But it doesn’t mean much. The opponent has many young players, and the players are evenly appointed. I think it’s right to play without worrying about the physical part.”
Meanwhile, LG is creating the best storm this season. The off-season manager Jo Sang-hyun was newly appointed, and he is enjoying the effect. At the beginning of the season, he showed ups and downs, but he came up from the 3rd round. In particular, recently, it recorded 4 wins and 1 loss, narrowing the gap with No. 1 Anyang KGC.
LG coach Cho Sang-hyun, whom we met before the game, said, “I made a lot of mistakes yesterday. He had many shortcomings, but he also had luck. Today is a back-to-back match and it took 5 hours to come up. There seems to be a physical problem. Still, he asked me to win with mental strength,” he said, emphasizing ‘mental strength’. 메이저사이트
He went on,” he told the players to give to the person who would give them on defense. And he told me not to allow outside shots easily. If there is a player who is physically difficult, he told me to quickly give him a replacement sign,” he added.
LG is showing a strong performance against KT. Although I lost the first round, I won both the second and third rounds. However, coach Cho said, “At that time, the opponent’s foreign players were different. I think it’s completely different now. He grew taller and his skills improved. So, I asked our players to take responsibility as one-on-one as much as possible without help or defense. To do that, you have to move a lot.”
LG narrowed the gap with the first place to two games. However, the gap with fourth place was only one game. When I mentioned this, coach Cho said, “If you lose straight now, you will go to 6th place, and if you win consecutively, you will go to 1st place. The goal is not to do well now and win first place. Grades must be received after 6 rounds. Before that, you have to learn by doing your best in every game. I don’t want to be excited for nothing, and I think the results will come later.”
