SK has won all of their last 4 matches through come-from-behind wins. However, the SK team was not satisfied.
Seoul SK met Daegu Korea Gas 먹튀검증 Corporation in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Pro Basketball regular season game held at the Daegu Gymnasium on the 17th and won 107-105. After a close battle that went to the second overtime, the game was won.
Jeon Hee-chul, SK coach, was appointed as SK’s commanding tower last season. His coaching period was long, but his first season as a head coach. The result was a great success. They started off in a good mood by winning the cup competition and raised SK to the best team by winning the regular league and championship match.
Coach Jeon and SK are cruising this season as well. Although he was shaken in the first round, Choi Jun-yong (200cm, F) and Choi Seong-won (184cm, G) joined in and quickly rose to the normal track. In the last 5 rounds, they recorded 7 wins and 2 losses and took 3rd place.
Manager Jeon attaches great importance to records and numbers. Even in his pre-game interview, he emphasizes records and numbers. Also, he often makes predictions based on records and figures.
Even in the game that day, coach Jeon said in an interview before the game, “The players are not vigilant. However, there are times when concentration is lost. Winning is important, but he strongly said to focus on performance. If I lose today, I will speak strongly. I hope the players will break my expectations.”
The reason for leaving such a prediction is that SK recently recorded a winning streak, but started losing in the early stages of the game. Against Suwon KT, Ulsan Hyundai Mobis, and Anyang KGC, they all won by reversing in the 4th quarter.
In this game, as in the previous games, it was pushed by the opponent from the 1st quarter to the 3rd quarter. He also committed 9 mistakes and was pushed back in the rebound fight. However, they tied the game in the fourth quarter and overturned the game in overtime.
SK has been anxious since the game season. It was because he gave up the atmosphere by conceding consecutively. However, Choi Won-hyeok (183cm, G) led the team’s offense by scoring 12 points in the first half alone, and Choi Bu-gyeong (200cm, C) also scored 8 points. He gave up 20 points to Lee Dae-seong (193cm, G), but narrowed the gap with a 9-0 run at the end of the second quarter. The score was 42-48.
In the third quarter, the opponent gave the flow and the score gap widened. However, at the beginning of the 4th quarter, SK quickly narrowed the score gap through a quick attack unique to SK. They even managed to turn around with a 14-0 run. However, at a crucial moment, Dae-sung Lee allowed a 3-point shot, and the last attack in the 4th quarter failed and went into overtime.
In the first overtime, there was no game. However, in the second overtime, Jamil Warney (200cm, C) scored 7 points and Kim Seon-hyung (187cm, G) scored 6 points. In particular, Warney led the team to victory by scoring a decisive goal 2 seconds before the end of the game.
Regarding such performance, coach Jeon said in an interview after the game, “If we lost today, the blow would have been really great. I still have to say thank you for winning. I don’t know why I couldn’t do it from the beginning. It is good to have a strong back heart, but if the gap widens in the playoffs, it will be difficult to close it. I want to change the rhythm in the next five games.”
In addition, when I conveyed the words of the former coach to Kim Seon-hyung, who was selected as the best player, Kim Seon-hyung said, “We also want to change our rhythm. In fact, fans really like this composition. Come-from-behind wins are the most thrilling. but we die (Laughter) I put all my energy into every match. I think that’s why the director said the same thing. In the next match against Samsung, we will try to do it early.”
SK will play against Samsung in Seoul on the 19th. Will he be able to show a different look in today’s game and take the lead from the beginning of the game?
