Choi Jun-yong (200cm, F)’s desperate play made SK’s reverse electrode in the second half.
Seoul SK defeated Jeonju KCC 78-70 in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball regular league held at Gunsan Wolmyeong Gymnasium on the 6th. He ran a four-game winning streak. With a record of 17 wins and 12 losses, he ranked third alone. There is no game difference with second place Changwon LG (16-11). It is 3 games behind No. 1 Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation (20-9).
Choi Jun-yong injured the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee during the 2020-2021 season. He left at the beginning of the 2020-2021 season, and he could not guarantee a return for the 2021-2022 season. Not many people were optimistic about Choi Jun-yong’s future.
However, Choi Jun-yong had a different idea. He thought of the conditions necessary for resurrection. He worked tirelessly to reinforce his injured knee and got his mind set. Choi Jun-yong, who built his mind and body step by step, started a practice game before the opening of the 2021-2022 season. He showed a better-than-expected physical condition and performance beyond expectations. He was included in SK coach Jeon Hee-chul’s plan.
Choi Joon-yong excelled in ball handling, quick attack development, shooting, defense under the net and rebounding. He showed his natural versatility. No, it showed his versatility more starkly. Then, SK took first place in the regular league after a long time, and Choi Jun-yong received the regular league MVP for the first time since his debut.
He also showed a high level of contribution in the playoffs. He showed his strength in various places and contributed to SK’s ‘first integrated championship’. However, he injured his ankle at the Asia Cup held after the end of the 2021-2022 season, and was excluded from SK powers due to plantar fasciitis just before the start of the 2022-2023 season.
While Choi Jun-yong was gone, SK sank a lot. Ahn Young-jun (195cm, F) also left before the opening of the 2022-2023 season due to military enlistment, so SK’s power decline was felt more clearly.
However, after Choi Jun-yong returned from Ulsan Hyundai Mobis on November 24, 2022, SK hit and went out. Various options, such as Choi Jun-yong’s defense and rebound, quick attack development and 2-on-2 deployment, gave strength to SK. After Choi Jun-yong’s return, SK recorded 12 wins and 4 losses. From the bottom of the crisis, he went up to a tie for 3rd place.
Choi Jun-yong carried the ball with Kim Seon-hyeong (187cm, G). On the other side of Kim Seon-hyung, the KCC defensive line was diverted. At 3 minutes and 51 seconds into the game, he got a 3-point foul in front of Jeon Jun-beom (195cm, F). 1 out of 3 free throws made.
A mid-range jumper, a kick-out pass followed by a breakthrough under the goal, and a single fast attack were used to create a chase flow. SK, which was pushed 4-12, scored 8 points thanks to Choi Jun-yong. After making it 12-12, KCC induced the first timeout of the game. 메이저사이트
However, SK finished the first quarter with 18-24. This is because the synergistic effect of Laguna (199cm, C) and Lee Seung-hyun (197cm, F) could not be controlled. Conversely, the defensive dominance of Choi Jun-yong (200cm, F) and Jamil Warney (199cm, C) did not show much.
Choi Bu-kyung (200cm, F) was brought in in the 2nd quarter, and Choi Jun-yong eased the burden of defending under the goal. All airborne ranges have been expanded. Since KCC introduced Ronde Hollis Jefferson (197cm, F), Choi Jun-yong was easier to move. SK also made a chase flow.
Choi Jun-yong faced Jeong Chang-yeong (193cm, G) in the attack. Jung Chang-young is a seasoned and clever player, but Choi Jun-yong is a player with good sense and physical and athletic abilities. He made good use of his ability with an elaborate pass following his mismatch induction. SK also got into the mood again. The first half ended 43-46.
Choi Jun-yong, who took a break at the end of the second quarter, regained his strength in the third quarter. I focused more on defense, rebounding, and the first pass after rebounding. In particular, Lee Seung-hyun’s mid-range jumper was actively blocked. He worked to build the foundation for the team.
Choi Jun-yong’s foundational work made Kim Seon-hyeong’s quick attack. Kim Seon-hyung, who made a quick break, scored 3 points and a double clutch. As Kim Seon-hyung was excited, SK also gained the upper hand. The third quarter ended 62-56.
Choi Jun-yong started in earnest in the 4th quarter. When another player shook the defense, Choi Jun-yong scored three points in a row from the right corner and right 45 degrees. SK ran away 68-59 in 2 minutes and 41 seconds from the start of the 4th quarter. He also led KCC’s second timeout in the second half.
Choi Jun-yong was desperate to acquire the right to attack. I tried to block even the smallest chance until the end, and I also tried to win the rebound with death power. Such a desperate play produced SK’s concentration on the game. SK, which has strengthened its focus on winning points, has achieved its first 4 consecutive victories of the season.
