‘Kwanhee-Dongseop-Junil 42-point joint venture’ LG wins 5 consecutive wins over Samsung
LG continued its home winning streak thanks to the performances of Lee Kwan-hee, Lim Dong-seop and Kim Jun-il, who transferred from Samsung.
Changwon LG won 96-78 in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Seoul Samsung home game held at Changwon Gymnasium on the 10th. LG, who had 5 home wins in a row, kept the 2nd place with a record of 26 wins and 14 losses. 10th place Samsung suffered its 28th loss (11 wins).
LG, who was weak at home, should be forgotten. Unlike usual on this day, he recorded a 39% 3-point shot success rate, giving home fans another victory. Lee Kwan-hee (15 points, 4 rebounds, 2 steals), Lim Dong-seop (15 points, 4 rebounds, 3 steals, 3 3-point shots), Asem Marey (14 points, 10 rebounds, 2 steals), Kim Jun-il (12 points, 4 assists), Dante Cunningham (10 points, 12 rebounds) 2 assists, 2 blocks) and Justin Gutang (10 points, 3 assists, 2 steals) scored double digits.
Even though Samsung once had a 24-point gap, they devoted their energy to the pursuit until the end, but felt the void left by Daral Willis. Anthony Moss (23 points, 9 rebounds) scored the most, while Lee Ho-hyun (15 points, 3 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals), Lee Jung-hyun (12 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists), and Jang Min-guk (11 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 3-pointers) ) was struggling.
LG had a 27.8% 3-point shot success rate 메이저놀이터in home games before the match. This is the lowest success rate based on 10 club home games. Considering that it is 35.7% in away games, the 3-point shot is unusually low in home games.
The first half of the day was different from the previous matches. Lee Jae-do made a 3-point shot from the start of the game. Yoon Won-sang took over the momentum. At the end of the 2nd quarter, LG added two 3-point shots by Lim Dong-seop, and finished the first half with a difference of 55-37, 18 points.
LG made 5 of 12 3-pointers in the first 20 minutes. The success rate was 42%. In addition, the two-point shot success rate was 70% (16/23), which was rather higher than the free throw success rate of 67% (8/12). This is the secret that LG overpowered Samsung.
Samsung played an equal game with LG until the middle of the second quarter, but lost the flow after Lee Kwan-hee and Kim Jun-il’s combination play. Yatoo’s accuracy was low, and LG’s quick attack was not blocked, so it fell behind significantly.
LG coach Cho Sang-hyun said ahead of the game that day, “(The content) was not good in the previous game with Samsung. At that time, there was only one foreign player. He asked for a good start, fearing that loose play would not continue,” he emphasized the start of the game.
One of the things coach Jo Sang-hyun always says is that the start is not good. What I would add here is that if you start well, you won’t be able to keep it to the end and allow the chase.
It was the same in Gyeonggi-do that day. LG led by 63-39, 24 points with 6 minutes and 43 seconds left in the third quarter. From this point on, starting with Jang Min-guk’s 3-point shot, he allowed 3 consecutive 3-point plays and was unable to continue the upward trend. It was also the moment Samsung tasted the 3-point shot for the first time after attempting the 10th 3-point shot.
Even if LG is chased, the power to endure is strong. LG started the 4th quarter with a 73-62, 11-point difference, and Gutang and Lee Kwan-hee’s scores prevented a single-digit score difference. Samsung did not give up and persistently followed, but each time Lim Dong-seop, Kim Jun-il and Cunningham scored and kept a double-digit score gap, approaching victory.
