LG, SK, and Hyundai Mobis ‘Fight for 2nd place’ ahead of the All-Star break

Reporter Lee Eui-jin = In professional basketball ahead of the All-Star Game break, the competition for second place is hot.

While Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation has solidified its solo system with 21 wins and 9 losses, Changwon LG (16 wins and 12 losses) is in second place as of the 9th.

However, Ulsan Hyundai Mobis and Seoul SK (17 wins and 13 losses), tied for 3rd place, are also not behind.

There are no rides between the three teams, and LG, which has played two less games, is slightly ahead in the win rate and is in second place.

Just in time for the All-Star Game break, two of the four games assigned this week are between these three teams.

On the 10th, LG will play the 2nd place defense against SK on an expedition.

Recently, the momentum is better in SK.

SK, which had been on a four-game winning streak, ended the winning streak by losing 80-83 in an away game against Ginseng Corporation on the 8th.

Still, with the performance that is not lost at all to the Ginseng Corporation, they played a close match until the last minute, proving that the recent rise was not in vain.

In SK, last season’s ‘Most Valuable Player (MVP) 3’ is alive and well.

Last season’s championship MVP Kim Seon-hyung led the team with 12.4 points and 7.8 assists in the last five games.

Jamil Warney, who won the foreign player MVP, is doing her part with 24.2 points and 12.4 rebounds, and regular league MVP Choi Joon-yong is also doing her part with 14.2 points and 5.4 rebounds.

The unique fast basketball also survived. In the last 5 games, SK has scored an average of 16 points in a fast break situation.

For LG, it is fortunate that we can meet this kind of SK not at home but on the road.

LG is unusually strong on away this season.

While they posted 10 wins and 2 losses on the road, they were sluggish with 6 wins and 10 losses at Changwon Gymnasium, their home.

Especially in the 3-point success rate, the gap between home (27.8%) and away (37.6%) is large.

Hyundai Mobis will play against Ginseng Corporation at home on the 11th.

For Hyundai Mobis, who are not very satisfied with 2 wins and 3 losses in the last 5 games, it is burdensome to meet Ginseng Corporation again, which they lost 68-77 on the 31st of last month.

However, the return of Choi Jin-soo is a rising factor.

Tall forward Choi Jin-soo, who had been unable to play on the court for a while due to ankle surgery before the opening, returned to the first team on the 8th against Suwon kt (89-83 win).

In this game, he recorded 7 points and 2 rebounds, adding height to Hyundai Mobis’ forward line.

All foreign players are centers, and forwards such as Jang Jae-seok and Ham Ji-hoon are all big men, so Hyundai Mobis struggled every time they met forwards who boasted high activity and athletic ability. 스포츠토토

Crying and eating mustard, 196 cm tall Lee Woo-seok used to play as a forward, but as he lost strength and physique, the need for a ‘fighting forward’ has been highlighted.

For Hyundai Mobis, where players born in 1999 such as Ronjay Avarientos, Seo Myung-jin, and Lee Woo-seok are the main players, the return of ‘veteran’ Choi Jin-soo, who is spending his 12th season in the professional league, is all the more welcome.

After the match between Hyundai Mobis and Ginseng Corporation, professional basketball begins preparations for the All-Star Game in earnest.

On the 15th at 2:00 PM, in the All-Star Game held at KT Arena in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do, Heo Woong (KCC) and Lee Dae-seong (Korea Gas Corporation), who took 1st and 2nd place in the fan vote, selected ‘Team Heo-ung’ and ‘Team Lee Dae-seong’ as captains. unfolds
