There was ‘another’ Lee Jung-hyun in Samsung’s winning position

The pursuit of Hyundai Mobis, which did not give up until the end, was scary. While Samsung was slowing down, Seo Myung-jin’s 3-point shot took the lead and fiercely followed. 69-68, by 1 point.

In a situation of crisis, ‘Ace’ Lee Jung-hyun once again stepped forward. He blocked Lee Woo-seok’s quick attack, which was aiming for a comeback, with a block shot. In the ensuing attack, he put in a 3-point shot and made room for a 4-point gap.

Lee Jung-hyun, who played 22 minutes and 29 seconds in the game, recorded 16 points and 4 assists. Following the Jeonju game against KCC two days ago, they dominated the match for two consecutive games.

Amid Lee Jung-hyun’s performance, Seoul Samsung Thunders won 78-68 in the 3rd round of the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Pro Basketball regular league against Ulsan Hyundai Mobis Phoebus held at Ulsan Dongchun Gymnasium on the 19th.

Lee Jung-hyun analyzed the victory, saying, “The opponent is a top-ranked team and we have never won this season, but the foreign players were able to play a good game while blocking the opponent well from the inside.”

Regarding the performance of the match, “I didn’t play much today. The junior players who entered first played the game in a combative manner and showed a lot of activity. I had plenty of stamina while completely resting in the third quarter, so it was good to be aggressive in the last fourth quarter. It led to results,” he said.

He said, “The opponent is very good inside. We also lost Lee Won-seok due to an injury, and (Emanuel) Terry is not a strong style. The players persevered well. The fact that we didn’t bother entering the trap and defended helped us win. Thank you to the centers.”

In the 3rd quarter, Samsung, which brought the atmosphere with Im Dong-seop’s performance, eventually faced a crisis once again in the 4th quarter.토토

Lee Jung-hyun said, “That part is our chronic problem. Since we don’t have a variety of attack options, we can’t play a stable post-2 point game in the match, so it’s difficult to manage the score. We need a two-man game and a lot of movement. It was narrowed down a lot, but the players didn’t give up, and they moved a lot and put a good screen, so there was a chance for a 3-point shot.”

Lee Jung-hyun decided the team’s victory in two consecutive matches. It’s a veteran and an ace fit.

He said, “It’s a part that the coach orders, and the coaches and players trust me, so I try to do it with more responsibility. I try to finish what I can finish. I’m always grateful that all the players play a lot and create such opportunities for me.” said.
