‘Sunny’ is tired. Both Kim Seon-hyeong and Jamil Warney’s offense have become dull. SK, which is aiming for V4, is in danger.
Seoul SK lost 70-81 in the third game of the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Championship against Anyang KGC held at Jamsil Student Gymnasium on the 29th. The series record was 1 win and 2 losses.
SK ran away with a 13-point lead at one point in the first quarter, but as the quarter went on, their offensive power and stamina declined. Choi Bu-gyeong scored 23 points, the most in the individual playoffs, but the team lost.
Warney, who lost his pride by scoring only 9 points in the second game, was sluggish again. He had a 10-point shooting percentage of just 25% (5/20). Kim Seon-hyung also showed a yatu hunting. He started the game with 5 points and 4 assists in the first quarter, along with one steal and one blocked shot, but he could not continue his performance consistently. Kim Seon-hyung’s final record was 10 points, 23.1% (3/13) field goal rate, 2 rebounds, 8 assists and 2 steals.
Kim Seon-hyung and Warney were called ‘a combination that can’t be stopped even if you know’ in the playoffs. With them at the forefront, SK went through the 6th round against Jeonju KCC and the 4th round against Changwon LG, without losing a single game. In the first leg of the championship match held in enemy territory, they showed explosive power side by side and seemed to continue their momentum.
However, the firepower of ‘Sunny’ in the 3rd game following the 2nd game was also lower than expected. Their proprietary plotter repeatedly ignored the rim, and SK’s boasted only 3 fast attacks. SK made an average of 5.2 quick attacks against KGC in the regular league, but only made an average of 3 in the championship match.
SK recorded an average of 84.8 points in the regular league, and was the team that ranked first in this category. In the semi-finals, Changwon LG, which was ranked first in this category with an average of 76.6 points, produced an upset by making an average of 83.3 points. 스포츠토토
In the championship game, he is averaging 71.3 points in three games. KGC is also a team that showed off strong defensive power with Moon Seong-gon and Oh Se-geun as the axis, ranking second after LG with an average of 78 runs in the regular league. Unlike LG without Asem Marey, KGC has no injury variables. This means that SK can expect a counterattack by making the spear sharper.
As for SK, the playoffs have been held since the 6th round, and Choi Jun-yong has also missed out due to an injury. It is only natural that Kim Seon-hyeong and Warney’s physical burden increases with each match. ‘Molppang Basketball’ was powerful enough, but KGC has many cards to prepare for both inside and outside. For SK, the 3rd match was a match that desperately realized the need for a helper to ease the burden on Kim Seon-hyung and Warney.
