Seoul SK caught ‘81.8% chance of winning’. ‘100% winning formula’ Oh Jae-hyun’s three 3-point shots exploded like a celebration at Jameel Warney’s last-minute concentration.
SK won 66-60 against Anyang KGC in the 5th game of the ‘2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball’ championship match (4 out of 7) held at Jamsil Student Gymnasium on the 3rd. The probability of winning the 5th game after 2 wins and 2 losses in the previous championship match was 81.8% (9 out of 11 total). In other words, it preoccupied the 8th division ridge of the championship.
Prior to the match, 메이저사이트Jeon Hee-cheol, SK coach, said that the key point of the game was ‘Kim Seon-hyung’s physical strength save’. Then he made two predictions. One is the success of anomaly defense. Coach Jeon said, “The opponent must have prepared a lot for our drop zone. So, if we go to the drop zone and it seems like it will break through, we prepared a tactic of changing to a man-to-man. We use it, but we shouldn’t use it too much. Even if you succeed twice, you will see the effect.”
And the other thing is that Oh Jae-hyeon, who is ‘SK’s winning formula’, made 3 successful 3-point shots. Coach Jeon said, “I hope Jae-Hyun Oh can only hit two 3-pointers. The burden will be high. I understand.” Both of these predictions worked.
The first quarter was a tight battle. SK led the attack with Oh Jae-hyun scoring 10 points, including two 3-pointers. It seemed that the former director’s prediction was coming true. However, KGC was also not easy. Byun Jun-hyung, Omari Spellman, and Oh Se-geun were active inside and outside, leading the first quarter with 23-22.
In the second quarter, the ‘trap’ set by Jeon Hee-chul worked well. SK operated various defensive tactics. As Warney and Choi Boo-kyung piled up under the goal to create a zone, KGC had no choice but to keep shooting from the outside. The odds are extremely low. KGC made more 3-point shot attempts (8) than 2-point shot attempts (7) in the 2nd quarter, but only succeeded in one. Oh Se-geun looked annoyed when he threw 3 points to Spellman, who blocked the attack route under the goal. KGC’s second quarter attack was completely neutralized.
On the other hand, SK ran away with 19 points, including Kim Seon-hyeong putting in two 3-pointers. SK ended up leading the first half 41-28.
But the fight wasn’t over. The potential of KGC, who won the regular season’Wire to Wire’, poured out in the 3rd quarter. After realigning power through halftime, KGC returned to ‘basic’ in attack and defense. Based on Spellman and Oh Se-geun’s rebound, they attacked SK’s inside. Even Byun Jun-hyung’s field goal exploded, and he poured 16 points in the first 4 minutes of the quarter. With 5 minutes and 44 seconds left, Abando’s quick dunk shot was successful and turned the game around 44-43. SK took the lead again with Heo Il-young’s 3-point shot, but Spellman allowed 2 points to make it 46-46. Again, the fight started from the beginning. SK finished the third quarter with a score of 52-51 as a tight game continued with a difference of one goal.
In the fourth quarter, the joys and sorrows were mixed. KGC scored the first goal with Oh Se-geun’s 2-point shot. The one-goal skirmish continued. However, at the last minute, SK came out with a high probability rebound-fast attack and under-the-goal strategy. KGC continued to try to compete on the outskirts. With about 4 minutes left, Abando, Spellman, and Byun Jun-hyung threw 3 points in a row. all missed In SK, Warney pierced the bottom of the goal.
And the last ‘100% victory formula’ was completed. Oh Jae-hyun’s third 3-point shot passed the rim with 38 seconds left, leading 63-60. The SK crowd burst into cheers the moment the goal was scored. It was a shout of confidence in victory.
