Then, Carrot ran away shaking the SK defense with an attack using Lawson. The first half ended with Carrot leading 4 points, 46-42. 토토사이트

Carrot, who was being dragged, reversed it with Lawson’s 3-point shot at the start of the 4th quarter. SK counterattacked with Kim Seon-hyung and Choi Jun-yong scoring side by side. Choi Jun-yong, who played an active role while marking Jeon Seong-hyeon in defense, also stood out with consecutive goals in offense. Then Jeon Seong-hyun received the screen and responded with a 3-point shot. With Choi Jun-yong, Warney, Jeon Seong-hyun, and Lawson leading the attack, a bloody battle unfolded with unpredictable results until the end.
