The two teams struggling to escape from the last place meet at a single wooden bridge.메이저놀이터
▶Seoul Samsung vs Daegu Korea Gas Corporation,
February 18 (Sat) 2pm @Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium / SPOTV2, SPOTV ON
-Improved performance, can we get out of last place
-Defeated 10 consecutive losses + tied for last place, too fatal
-Get out of the bottom ranks Struggle for the sake, which team is more desperate?
Samsung has recorded 2 wins and 3 losses in the last 5 games. The ranking is still in 10th place, but it is showing improved performance. Even though Lee Won-seok could not come back from injury, the existing team, including Kim Seung-won, who joined the team through a trade, continued to promote with fighting spirit. Excluding the LG match, I was able to find encouraging parts in the remaining two losses. On the 4th (Sat), they played a close match, taking the advantage (47-26) in the rebound fight against the leader KGC, and did not break down easily in the previous SK match and fought until the end of the extension. Can Samsung, which is gradually raising the atmosphere, get out of last place?
Has the effect of spring basketball DNA been exhausted? KOGAS cannot escape from the swamp of sluggishness. After the DB match on January 26th, there was no win for 9 matches until the previous match against Hyundai Mobis on the 16th (Thursday). The more regrettable part is that all 9 games were lost by a score of less than 7 points. The collapse of the match, which is the homework coach Yoo Do-hoon mentioned from the beginning of the season, is getting more serious rather than being resolved. If KOGAS, which has been on the PO stage for 5 consecutive seasons (the 19-20 season ended early due to corona), loses on this day, the possibility of entering PO for 6 consecutive seasons seems to be even more slim.
The two teams have met 4 times this season, and KOGAS has the upper hand with 3 wins and 1 loss. Against Samsung’s loose goal, Jung Hyo-geun, Lee Dae-heon, and Murphy Holloway took the lead. However, Samsung is filling Lee Won-seok’s vacancy with the struggles of Kim Seung-won, Jang Min-guk, Shin Dong-hyuk, etc. On the other hand, in the case of Gas Corporation, in a situation where they could not break a losing streak, even Jeong Hyo-geun was absent due to a knee injury against Hyundai Mobis. The gap between the two teams narrowed by one game. It remains to be seen whether Samsung will get out of its long-running position at the bottom, and whether KOGAS will get out of a losing streak.
▶Seoul SK vs Anyang KGC
February 18th (Sun) 4pm @Jamsil Student Gymnasium / SPOTV2
-‘Stop Byun Jun-hyung’ The key to victory is SK’s advanced defense
-‘The first team to achieve 10 consecutive wins’ KGC, where is the end of the solo run? until?
-Continue winning streak in the East Asian Super League
SK, which lost in the game against LG, where Choi Jun-yong was away due to an injury, took a breather by winning both games afterwards. The factor that SK was able to continue its upward trend despite the departure of its key players was the dedication of defensive specialists such as Jae-Hyun Oh, Seong-Won Choi, and Won-Hyeok Choi, as well as the performance of the Kim Seon-Hyung-Jamil Warney combination. On the other hand, their performance is expected to become more important in this day’s head-to-head confrontation. Byun Jun-hyung, who is in front of the opponent, is showing off his good condition enough to be counted as a league MVP candidate. In addition, in order to control tricky players such as Park Ji-hoon, Lens Abando, and Moon Sung-gon, it seems that they will need more activity.
Who can stop this team? KGC rose to the heights of 10 consecutive wins through the previous game against KGC. Byun Jun-hyung, who has been reborn as the team’s ace this season, is showing off good condition with an average of 16.5 points and 6.3 assists during his 10 consecutive wins. Omari Spellman and Oh Se-geun also contributed 22.4 points and 12.4 points respectively, contributing to the team’s upward trend. Although they do not actively use bench members, Park Ji-hoon, Bae Byung-jun, and Yang Hee-jong are injecting vitality into the team at the right time in a powerful lineup that includes Byun Jun-hyung, Abando, Moon Seong-gon, Oh Se-geun, and Spellman. Let’s look forward to how long the KGC solo system will last.
The two teams that faced each other in the championship match last season will head to Japan from March 1st to 5th. This is because the East Asian Super League (EASL) will be held. During the season, it can be burdensome to digest a tight schedule while traveling abroad, but the prize money for the winning team is close to $250,000. It’s a situation where you have no choice but to risk life and death. This confrontation between the two teams is expected to be more intense in order to continue the good atmosphere and do well in the international competition, and to relax after the trip together. Which team will continue the atmosphere with victory today?
