The second game was a victory for the KGC strategy. It was effective to entrust Moon Seong-gon to defend against Kim Seon-hyung, who could not control himself in the first game. Kim Seon-hyeong only scored 10 points, attempting 7 field goals. Kim Seon-hyung averaged 13.7 shots and scored 16.1 points in seven playoff games before the second game.
Moon Seong-gon blocked Kim Seon-hyung’s main breakthrough route, the right side, and played a one-on-one defense, and KGC also focused on shield management. Except for exceptional cases such as injuries to ease the physical burden, when Kim Seon-hyung was replaced, Seong-gon Moon was mostly called to the bench.
Even though they lost, SK also found a solution to KGC’s odds in the second half. Choi Seong-won was placed in the left corner, aiming for a chance derived from Kim Seon-hyung. Kim Seon-hyung did not attempt a shot in the third quarter, but recorded 6 assists, and Choi Seong-won’s 9 points (3 3-point shots) were all scored by Kim Sun-hyung’s assist.
KGC, which is aiming for series advantage, needs another tidying up in defense. Although he overcame the sluggishness in the first game and scored 18 points in the second game, Lens Abando has as clear a disadvantage as its advantages. In order to prevent SK from chasing like in the 3rd quarter of the 2nd game, depending on the situation, increasing the utilization of Park Ji-hoon and Jung Jun-won can be a way to improve the completeness of the defense. 메이저놀이터
