Even though Yang Hong-seok (195cm, F) scored 19 points, the most in the team, he could not prevent KT from losing.
Suwon KT lost 70-73 in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Round 5 match against Seoul Samsung held at Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium on the 2nd. The season record is 16 wins and 21 losses. It fell two places from a tie for 6th to a single 8th.
On January 31st, KT won the home game against Korea Gas Corporation in Daegu after a bloody battle. It wasn’t a satisfying match, but there were definitely results.
It was a victory that overcame the weakness of the match that was revealed against SK and LG in the 4th round. It defeated the relentless pursuit of Korea Gas Corporation.
And Yang Hong-seok, who showed a lot of ups and downs, also recovered his condition. Yang Hong-seok scored in double digits in three consecutive games and adjusted the zero point.
Before the match, KT coach Seo Dong-chul said, “Samsung’s domestic players are very willing to break out of losing streaks. Foreign players should also be wary of it, but we need to catch as many points as possible from domestic players.”
However, director Seo Dong-chul’s Han Hee-won (194cm, F) card did not fit. Han Hee-won played for only 2 minutes and 58 seconds in the first quarter before being substituted out.
On the other hand, Yang Hong-seok showed good field goal sense from the first quarter. He got off to a fresh start, posting 6 points.
Yang Hong-seok’s performance continued into the second quarter. Despite the rather stiff attack development, he found a loophole in Samsung’s defense with good moves. He scored 12 points in the first half alone.
In the third quarter, when KT pursued in earnest, Yang Hong-seok’s fingertips were the hottest. He scored 7 points, including one 3-pointer. He made 12 field goal attempts through the third quarter, putting in 8 of them. 토토사이트
Even so, Yang Hong-seok couldn’t help but laugh. It was because he disappeared in the 4th quarter, which was the place of victory.
Yang Hong-seok, who had been burning until the 3rd quarter, cooled down in the 4th quarter. He played 7 minutes and 19 seconds, but only had 1 field goal attempt. I had to wait and see KT’s come-from-behind defeat.
KT’s highest scorer in the game that day was Yang Hong-seok. He scored 19 points with a 62% field goal success rate.
However, Yang Hong-seok was not satisfied. He had no influence on the match. It was ironic.
Ha Yoon-ki (204cm, C) took the role of the ace instead of Yang Hong-seok, who rode the rollercoaster in the fourth round. Recorded the highest average score in the 4th round team.
Yang Hong-seok’s accompanying performance is absolutely essential for KT to advance to the playoffs in the round of 6. You have to lead KT together with Ha Yoon-gi-Jones.
In this game, it was 2% short. I couldn’t take the last step. KT is running out of time.
