Reporter Lee Eui-jin = Goyang Carrot coach Kim Seung-gi, who won his first win in the 4th game in the professional basketball ‘Kim Seung-gi Derby’, was satisfied saying, “Thank you to all the players.”
Carrot defeated Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation 85-65 in the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball home game held at Goyang Gymnasium in Gyeonggi-do on the 21st.
The match between the two teams attracted fans’ attention with the ‘Kim Seung-gi · Jeon Seong-hyun’ derby as coach Kim, who commanded Ginseng Corporation last season, and Jeon Seong-hyun, who were the main players, joined Carrot.
Carrot, who gave up rounds 1 and 2, seemed to be winning in the 3rd round, but lost 3 times in a row due to Park Ji-hoon’s dramatic final score right before the end.
Coach Kim, who finally won his first victory in the fourth match, said in a broadcast interview after the game, “I have lost several times because I have not been able to overcome the hump. I told the players to win at home today, but they listened to me well.”
Coach Kim mentioned several times that Ginseng Corporation, which he was leading, was the strongest team in professional basketball this season.
In mid-November last year, after the match with Seoul Samsung, where he expressed his impressions of dealing with all the teams after finishing the first round, he commented, “Ginseng Corporation is the most difficult. It seems that one Seong-Hyun Jeon has made up for more than the missing vacancy.”
On this day, ace Jeon Seong-hyun scored 23 points, including 5 3 points, and Kim Jin-yu, who is less than 190 cm tall, took the lead in defeating the ‘strongest team’ by taking 17 rebounds including offensive rebounds.
Coach Kim said, “Except Jeon Seong-hyun, all the players are giving 200% beyond their abilities.” did it
He did not forget to praise Kim Jin-yu, who recorded his first career double-double by posting 12 points and 17 rebounds.
Manager Kim said, “Jin-yu is a player who does a lot of dirty things. I can’t say anything other than Jin-yu. I want to praise everyone.”
On this day, Carrot threw 46 3s and put 17 of them in, embarrassing Ginseng Corporation.
Ginseng Corp. coach Kim Sang-sik, who had been hit 9 times by the 2nd quarter, gave up another 2 shots to Kim Kang-seon in 20 seconds in the middle of the 3rd quarter, and he had no choice but to request an operation time and instruct everyone to change defense.
The big man was also ordered to actively defend the perimeter, and as a result, the defense under the goal was loosened, and Kim Jin-yu and Didric Lawson struggled with easy scoring.
Coach Kim said, “To be honest, there is no way for us to beat that team (normally). There are no players.” I saw.
The 46 3-point attempts Carrot recorded on this day are tied for 7th all-time with Ginseng Corporation in December 2018, March 2019, and March 2022. 스포츠토토
1st and 2nd in this category are Incheon Etland (now Daegu Korea Gas Corporation, 56) and Ulsan Hyundai Mobis (53), which set a record on March 7, 2004. It was the result of a ‘sketch’ in which 22 and 21 3 points were driven amidst the opponent’s ‘consideration’.
Unlike this ‘drive’, Carrot is seeing the effect by putting the 3-point itself as the team’s main strategy.
For the first time in professional basketball history, Carrot, who attempts more threes (34.1) than twos (33.2), is in fifth place with a five-game winning streak.
Coach Kim said, “I will play basketball that can impress. I am doing well now.”
