‘There is no shaking even in a power vacuum!’
Seoul SK played a tight 5th round schedule until the 15th. From the Goyang Carrot match on the 5th to the Suwon KT match on the 14th, 5 matches were played in 10 days. After the Korea Gas Corporation match in Daegu on the 11th, they faced Changwon LG at home on the 12th without a break.
SK made a great 5th round midterm report despite the limitations of physical strength. Only lost to LG on the 12th, and all the other 4 games were decorated with victories, maintaining an upward trend with 4 wins and 1 loss. The regular league record is 24-17, tied for 3rd place with Ulsan Hyundai Mobis.
It wasn’t just that the results were good. The income earned in the process of creating the current results was greater. Despite the crisis of a power vacuum with a decrease in physical strength, SK showed off the aspect of a strong team without wavering. 토토사이트
Since the game against LG on the 12th, Choi Jun-yong (29), the pillar of SK, has not been able to play on the court. Just before the end of the gas construction match on the 11th, Choi Jun-yong blocked Murphy Holloway’s shot under the goal with a block shot. He contributed to the team’s victory with decisive defense, but suffered an injury due to an impact on his left heel in the process of landing after a jump.
The absence of Choi Jun-yong, who is considered a key force in the offense and defense, is a big concern for SK. Choi Jun-yong failed to play in two games until the match against KT on the 14th. He is highly likely to miss the Seoul Samsung match on the 16th as well. For the time being, it is SK that has to repeatedly fight for rankings on thin ice without core power.
As SK lost 84-94 against LG on the 12th, the anxiety seemed to become a reality. However, against KT on the 14th, he took a breather by winning 91-82 without Choi Jun-yong. Oh Jae-hyeon (22 points) and Heo Il-young (16 points) collaborated to score 38 points, boasting a fantastic teamwork. Oh Jae-Hyun, who always showed a solid appearance in defense, made a big success by hitting 4 3-point shots in the offense that day, repaying coach Jeon Hee-chul’s trust.
It is SK that has demonstrated its ability to respond to crises with ‘system basketball’ that does not waver even in the face of injuries to key players. There’s nothing like achieving results with a ‘Plan B’ in a long race. SK now seems to be overcoming the crisis wisely and adding more ways to win one by one. I wonder how far SK, which is showing off the aspect of a ‘defending champion’ by taking care of both the process and the result, will go up.
