Professional basketball Seoul SK was a “master of reversals” at the end of the regular season. With the back mind, they achieved a complete victory in the 6th round, and the 6th round playoff (PO) against Jeonju KCC was also finished in 3 games with a dramatic come-from-behind victory in the 2nd and 3rd games.
SK, which overturned the 11-point lead in the first leg of the semifinal PO against Changwon LG and won a come-from-behind victory, wrote another come-from-behind drama in the second game with Leon Williams’ final score.안전놀이터
SK won the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Semifinal PO 2nd round held at the Changwon Indoor Gymnasium on the 16th, thanks to Williams’ scoring under the final goal with 0.6 seconds left in the game to win 92-91. SK, which swept both the first and second games held in enemy territory, left only one win to advance to the championship match for the second consecutive season following last season when it achieved a combined victory. All of the teams that won the 1st and 2nd games in the 28 semifinal POs have all advanced to the championship match.
SK’s ace Kim Seon-hyung (10 points, 6 assists) struggled that day, tied with 8 points until the 3rd quarter. In addition to Kim Seon-hyeong, the rest of the players except Jamil Warney (40 points, 11 rebounds) and Heo Il-young (24 points, 6 rebounds) were sluggish.
SK gave up a goal to LG Lee Kwan-hee (19 points) within 40 seconds of the fourth quarter, trailing by 65-75, 10 points. However, from this time, SK’s great counterattack show began without fail. Starting with Warney’s 3 points in a row, he poured 16 points in an instant, blocked LG’s attack scoreless, and overturned the game 81-75.
LG did not back down either. Lee Kwan-hee and Reggie Perry (31 points, 13 rebounds) counterattacked and brought the atmosphere, and with 35 seconds left, Yoon Won-sang’s middle shot turned the game around 90-89. SK rebalanced with Warney’s free throw 1 point, but in the ensuing attack, Kim Joon-il drew Warney’s 5 fouls and scored 2 valuable free throws.
However, the trouble was that Kim Joon-il succeeded in only one out of two free throws. In the ensuing attack, SK entrusted Kim Seon-hyung with the last attack, and Kim Sun-hyung’s plotter missed the rim. However, Williams, who came in instead due to Warney’s foul-out, surged up from the bottom of the goal once again following an offensive rebound like gold, and put the ball on the rim, and the game ended like that. Williams became the main character of the match by scoring the final goal to lead the team to victory after only 13 seconds. The third game between the two teams will be held on the 18th at the Jamsil Student Gymnasium.
