Lee Jung-hyun and Lawson warmed up the atmosphere by crossing the inside and outside. Han Ho-bin also scored 11 points, including three 3-pointers, for 17 minutes and 50 seconds.
Jeon Seong-hyun ran for 33 minutes and 15 seconds,바카라 the longest since playing PO in the second game. He scored 8 points, including 2 3-pointers, but made 2 of 9 3-pointers. The success rate was only 22.2%. Suffering from tinnitus and pain due to aggravated sudden deafness, it is not easy for Jeon Seong-hyun to maintain a normal shooting sense and condition. However, just having Jeon Seong-hyun on the court is a huge burden to the opponent. He has no choice but to pay attention to switches, assist defense, etc. to block Jeon Seong-hyeon. The psychological impact he has on his teammates is also great. Carrot succeeded in upset by changing the atmosphere from the 3rd game, when Jeon Seong-hyun returned, in the PO of the 6th round against Ulsan Hyundai Mobis.
KGC Ginseng Corporation also focused on blocking Jeon Seong-hyun in the second round. In the meantime, the defense against Lee Jung-hyun has become relatively loose. Lee Jung-hyun dug into the gap well. Jeon Seong-hyun is a diligent player to create a shot opportunity. He helps with spacing. Han Ho-bin and Lawson can also benefit from this.
Coach Kim Seung-ki of Carrot said, “No matter how bad (former) Seong-hyun’s condition is, just being on the court helps. Even if the shot doesn’t go in, the opponent has no choice but to care about Seong-hyun. When it is decisive, he has said that he only needs to give me one shot.” As coach Kim said, Jeon Seong-hyun played for over 30 minutes and put a great burden on KGC Ginseng Corporation. Compared to other players, Jeon Seong-hyun has not played much in PO yet. If you raise your game stamina and recover the shooting feeling, Carrot can become stronger, not tired.
