LG stopped the upward trend of Gas Corporation. It was heavenly.
Changwon LG won 80-69 in an away game against Daegu Korea Gas Corporation in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball held at the Daegu Gymnasium on the 16th. LG, who recorded their 3rd consecutive win of the season, ranked 3rd with a record of 12 wins and 9 losses.
KOGAS, which lost all three matches against LG, suffered its 11th loss (10 wins), failing to continue the upward trend of its 6 home wins in a row. Last season, KOGAS also won the 5th and 6th rounds after losing all 4 rounds to LG.
LG won a valuable victory thanks to the performances of Asem Marey (17 points, 11 rebounds), Lee Kwan-hee (14 points, 6 rebounds), Yoon Won-sang (12 points), and Dante Cunningham (11 points, 9 rebounds, 3 blocks).
Gas Corp. Lee Dae-seong (21 points, 2 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals) and Murphy Holloway (13 points, 14 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks) fought hard, but bowed their heads due to poor rebounds (33-43).
The first half was a confrontation between Marey and Lee Dae-sung.
Marey recorded 17 points and 8 rebounds in the first half. Yushu Ndoye, who came out as a starter to block Marey, was caught with 4 fouls in 7 minutes and 2 seconds. Marey’s offensive power was just as powerful.
Lee Dae-sung scored 14 points in the first half alone. It was the team’s only double-digit score. The field goal success rate was not good at 33%, but all six free throws were scored.
Before the match, LG coach Jo Sang-hyun said, “The defense we prepared should be good, and (Gas Corporation) was a team with a good start, so we alerted the players. We must not be pushed back in the first quarter.”
Like director Cho Sang-hyun’s wish, LG took the lead with Marey at the forefront. When Marey rested on the bench during the 2nd quarter, he even turned 40-41, but Marey returned to the court and scored consecutive points at the end of the 2nd quarter, ending the first half at 47-41.
Gas Corporation succeeded in tying (24-24) or reversing (41-40) even though the 1st quarter (10-18) and 2nd quarter (28-36) were dragged by 8 points, but the 2nd quarter finish was not good and the flow was handed over to LG.
Gas Corporation has often reversed the flow in the second half of recent games. It was the same on this day. Starting with the start of the 3rd quarter, they conceded 5 runs in a row, 41-52, starting with Jeon Hyun-woo’s breakthrough when they fell behind by 11 points, and then Lee Dae-seong and Belrangel, etc. scored 15 consecutive points to turn the score around 56-52. 토토사이트
However, he missed an opportunity to run further as he made only two out of six free throws.
After leading by 11 points, LG missed all 8 field goals and made 4 mistakes for about 6 minutes and 30 seconds. Of course, the flow had to be lost to the gas corporation. It was fortunate that Yoon Won-sang scored 5 points in a row and faced the 4th quarter with a 58-57, 1-point advantage.
With the start of the 4th quarter, LG scored 12 points in a row after Yoon Won-sang’s 3-point shot. For 5 minutes, the gas corporation did not give a single point. 70-57, 13 points wide open.
After allowing Jung Hyo-geun to make a 3-point shot, Lee Kwan-hee and Gutang added consecutive points to make it 74-60. The remaining time was 3 minutes and 38 seconds.
LG approached victory by launching an attack using the attack time limit.
