“Everyone did their part” (Samsung coach Eun Hee-seok)
“I was pushed by Samsung’s organized play and amount of activity” (Hyundai Mobis coach Cho Dong-hyun) The
Seoul Samsung held the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot professional basketball regular season at Ulsan Dongchun Gymnasium on the 19th. They defeated Ulsan Hyundai Mobis 78-68. It was the second straight win of the season. He also occupied the 10-win high ground. Samsung, which recorded 10 wins and 13 losses, threatened Daegu Korea Gas Corporation (10 wins, 12 losses) in 6th place by one game.
Shin Dong-hyuk (193cm, F) showed a high energy level from the start. In addition to putting pressure on the Hyundai Mobis ball handler, he also scored with a quick attack, a dribble jumper, and a 3-point shot. Kim Gwang-cheol (184 cm, G), who matched with Kim Si-rae (178 cm, G), also did his part.
However, Samsung finished the first quarter with a score of 20-24. I couldn’t stop Prim in the second quarter either. Cho Woo-sung (205cm, C) scored a goal that changed the atmosphere, but Samsung’s attack process was not smooth overall. At that time, Lee Jung-hyun (189cm, G) stepped forward. He raised the team atmosphere with foul free throws and dribble jumpers.
Lee Jung-hyun led Samsung’s reversal. Samsung, which started the third quarter with a score of 42-39, moved away from Hyundai Mobis with scores from Lim Dong-seop (198cm, F) and Jonathan Alledge (204cm, F). However, Samsung’s shooting concentration dropped sharply in the second half of the third quarter. They were content with leading 61-56.
Samsung, which could not run away, was chased by 65-63 in 3 minutes and 29 seconds of the fourth quarter. Samsung coach Eun Hee-seok called for a second timeout in the second half. And Lee Jung-hyun finished the game with a decisive 3 points 2 minutes and 32 seconds before the end of the game.
After the game, Samsung coach Eun Hee-seok said, “Everyone did their part. Also, despite the players going through a series of away matches, they recorded a winning streak. I want to commend you for that.”
Then, “(Aledgeji) was surprised after the KCC match ended. (Please help me adapt)’. So the coaching staff and players gave advice. But maybe it’s because I’ve experienced a lot of other leagues, I think I’m quick-witted. Unlike the first game, he showed good performance.”
Meanwhile, Hyundai Mobis tied for second place with Changwon LG with 13 wins and 9 losses. 2.5 games away from No. 1 Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation (16 wins, 7 losses).
Jang Jae-seok (202cm, C) and Gage Prim (205cm, C) tried to hit the Samsung paint zone. Although he had difficulties due to the strength and height of Samsung’s big man, he continued to attack Samsung’s rim. The honest play of the two big men gave Hyundai Mobis an early advantage.
Advanced resources such as Lee Woo-seok (196cm, G), RJ Avarientos (181cm, G), and Kim Young-hyun (184cm, G) threw mid-range jumpers or 3 points. It was to strengthen Hyundai Mobis’ under-the-goal capabilities. However, Hyundai Mobis’ mid-to-long range guns ignored the rim.
In particular, three points were problematic. Hyundai Mobis tried 9 3 points in a row after the first 3 point shot. Without Kim Dong-jun (175cm, G)’s 3-point shot, Hyundai Mobis’ silence would have been longer.
Nevertheless, Hyundai Mobis has not moved far away from Samsung. This is because Samsung’s consecutive scoring was controlled. In addition, Kim Dong-joon (175cm, G), who was put in as a substitute, ended the ‘outside gun drought’ with two 3-pointers. It gave Hyundai Mobis hope that it could reverse. 토토
As Dong-jun Kim energized them, the energy levels of the other players also rose. In particular, Prim was like that. He created a come-from-behind atmosphere with a layup following the scoring under the goal using strength and participation in the fast break. However, he missed the opportunity to turn around Lee Jung-hyun’s final blow.
Hyundai Mobis coach Jo Dong-hyun said after the game, “We were pushed back by Samsung’s organized play and activity. He was complacent, and he was not cool,” he said.
After that, “There was a miss in the detail of the defensive timing. He wasn’t smart in attack either. She had an impatient side,” he said.
