Seoul SK’s strategy of managing physical strength by boldly excluding Kim Seon-hyung and Jamil Warney worked. Won in the 4th game of the championship match (4 out of 7) and returned the game to the starting point with 2 wins and 2 losses.
SK beat KGC 100-91 in Game 4 of the 2022-23 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Championship held at Jamsil Student Gymnasium in Seoul on the 1st.
As a result, SK, which had a series record of 2 wins and 2 losses, raised hopes of winning by avoiding the worst situation.
On the other hand, KGC, which could have only one win left to win the championship, took the early lead, but after Kim Seon-hyung and Warney were put in, the flow was taken away and eventually lowered its head.
Head coach Jeon Hee-chul, driven to the brink, pulled out a surprise card that excluded Kim Seon-hyung and Warney from the starting lineup. It was a strategy that focused on defense while saving Kim Seon-hyeong and Warney’s physical strength.
Coach Jeon said, “We have to win today’s game somehow,” and “Irregularity may become a constant. The attack may not work out well, but the players who go out first must endure as much as possible.”
SK made a starting lineup with Choi Bu-kyung, Choi Seong-won, Oh Jae-hyun, Song Chang-yong, and Leon Williams. For about 3 minutes and 30 seconds, KGC, which featured all of the key players such as Oh Se-geun, Omari Spellman, and Byun Jun-hyung, faced 11-11 evenly. However, KGC’s five outer guns exploded and Spellman’s dunk shot made it 15-23.
In order to regain the stolen flow, the former coach also had to take out the cards he had saved. With 3 minutes and 20 seconds left in the first quarter, Kim Seon-hyung and Warney, who were on the bench, were put on the court.
The effect was immediate. SK finished the first quarter with Warney and Kim Seon-hyung scoring 25-25. Warney scored 8 points while playing only 3 minutes and 20 seconds in the first quarter.
Even at the beginning of the second quarter, SK led the game. SK ran away to 34-27 with Kim Seon-hyung’s 3-point shot and Heo Il-young’s goal.
After that, SK allowed KGC to pursue and played a close game until the middle of the 3rd quarter. Although they gave up a turnaround, they immediately regained the lead because Kim Seon-hyung and Warney, who were ‘managed’, did their part faithfully.
In the 2nd and 3rd quarters, Kim Seon-hyeong scored 13 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals, and Warney flew with 14 points and 8 rebounds. It was a different look than when they failed to break through the opponent’s defense in the third game and only scored 10 points each.
In particular, when Kim Seon-hyeong led narrowly by 63-62, he induced Moon Seong-gon to foul off with a good defense. This play was the winning point of the game. In the remaining 4 minutes, SK launched a fierce attack and ended the 3rd quarter with a score of 81-66.토스카지노
As Kim Seon-hyeong and Warney led the attack, SK’s other offensive options also began to work. Choi Seong-won, Choi Bu-kyung, Heo Il-young and Choi Won-hyuk added to the score and widened the gap.
In the 4th quarter, SK’s defense was momentarily disrupted and allowed KGC to make 3-pointers in a row, leading to 88-84.
For SK, the income was as much as one win. It is encouraging that Kim Seon-hyung and Warney’s attack survived as coach Jeon had hoped. Kim Seon-hyung scored 23 points, 5 rebounds, 10 assists and 2 steals, and Warney flew with 28 points and 17 rebounds. In addition, Choi Seong-won (17 points), Choi Bu-kyung (13 points), and Choi Won-hyuk (8 points) also added points to achieve ‘100 points’.
Coach Jeon said after the game, “Irregular selection worked. The first quarter went well as expected, and the overall game worked out well.” revealed
