Changwon LG will play in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot professional basketball regular season to be held at the Changwon Indoor Gymnasium on the 22nd. Meet with Jeonju KCC.
From the 2022-2023 season, coach Jo Sang-hyun, who was newly appointed, identified LG’s strengths and weaknesses. Coach Cho Sang-hyun, who identified the strengths and weaknesses, communicated a lot with the team. The purpose of communication was to give the team the necessary color.
The color that director Cho Sang-hyun tried to put on is ‘sticky air defense movement’. He laid the foundation for a quick attack with solid defense and pursued organized and organic offensive movements.
The color change that LG wanted came out well. ‘Sticky defense’, ‘strong energy level’, and ‘quick attack transition’ are being done well. Lee Jae-do (180cm, G) and Asem Marey (202cm, C) held the center, and Yoon Won-sang (180cm, G) made a new comeback.메이저놀이터
Justin Gutang (188cm, F), Kim Junil (200cm, C), and Dante Cunningham (202cm, F) have established themselves as key options for the second unit. The second unit is the key factor that made LG’s rise.
They also won all of their last 3 matches. 2nd place with 19 wins and 12 losses. However, the home win rate is low at 7 wins and 10 losses. The biggest worry of the LG team.
Before the match, LG coach Cho Sang-hyun said, “We lost a lot in the last KCC game. The performance wasn’t too good. The players are also aware. The atmosphere is good because we are on a three-game winning streak, but that is not the problem. We have to do well in the basketball we prepared for.”
After that, “Im Dong-seop was included in the starting lineup. I thought it would be burdensome, so I thought it would be better to start at the beginning. When Yang Jun-seok needs the atmosphere, he plans to use it as a transition card,” he said.
Meanwhile, KCC must firmly adhere to the playoff line.
KCC is the team that attracted the most attention in the summer of 2022. This is because two out of the 6 free agents (free agents) were recruited. Both Heo Woong (185cm, G) and Lee Seung-hyun (197cm, F) were caught under the condition of a total of 750 million won in remuneration for the 2022-2023 season over a five-year contract period.
However, KCC’s conditions were not very good. Lee Seung-hyun joined the team late after ankle surgery, and Heo Woong also joined the KCC players after joining the national team. In addition, key resources such as Kim Ji-wan (188cm, G), Jeong Chang-young (193cm, G), and Jeon Jun-beom (195cm, F) were unable to do off-season training due to injuries.
Foreign players were also anxious. Laguna (199cm, C) was alive and well, but Ronde-Hollis Jefferson (197cm, F), who replaced Tyler Davis (208cm, C), is still a double-edged sword. Speed and breakthrough are gradually coming out, but the defense and rebound battle that endures are uneasy.
KCC, which had overlapping elements of anxiety, did not produce results as expected. It even fell to the bottom. Although they were on the rise to some extent, they were in 6th place with a record of 16 wins and 16 losses. There is only a two-game gap with 7th place Suwon KT (14-18)
. He was also good at attacking. And LG has a lot of people available. Also, the 6th men who went out for the first time did well. Because of that, I was able to endure,” he said.
He continued, “We made a mistake against Hyundai Mobis last time. Like the last game against LG, the sixth man is not sent first. However, LG is a team with a lot of people available, so we have to distribute the people well.”
