The contrast was divided by a 1-point difference. Kim Seon-hyung (35, 187cm), who turned away from the rim as a plotter of conversion, let out a sigh of relief.
Seoul SK won 92-91 in the second leg of the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Pro Basketball Quarterfinals playoff against Changwon LG held at Changwon Gymnasium on the 16th. SK recorded 2 wins in the series, leaving only 1 win to advance to the championship game for 2 consecutive seasons. Kim Seon-hyung only scored 10 points, including all 4 failed 3-pointers, but added strength with 6 assists and 5 steals.
It was a bloody battle with 14 reverses and 8 ties between the two teams. The main character of the winning shot was Leon Williams, not Jameel Warney, who was active with 40 points, 11 rebounds and 2 blocks. Williams played only 13 seconds at the end of the fourth quarter due to Warney’s foul out, but took the lead in the team’s victory by recording 2 points and 2 rebounds, including a winning shot.
It was right before the end of the game that the contrast between SK and LG was different. Two seconds before the end of the game, SK trailed by one point, Kim Seon-hyung tried a floater with Dante Cunningham in front, but it ended with an air ball. A dramatic situation occurred after that. Williams, who won an offensive rebound, scored a point under the goal that led to a reversal 0.6 seconds before the end of the game. It was a winning shot that gave victory to SK. 메이저사이트
The plotter is one of Kim Sun-hyung’s weapons. It was a rare sight that Kim Seon-hyung’s plotter didn’t even hit the rim. Seonhyung Kim said, “I think he would have entered if it had been the same step or distance as usual. He cared too much about Cunningham’s height, closer than usual. He threw it at a higher angle to avoid a blocked shot, so it was too short.”
As a result, it became a lucky airball. Thanks to not hitting the rim, the ball went straight to Williams who was sitting under the goal without being deflected. Kim Seon-hyung also said, “It was rather lucky that I didn’t get hit by the rim.” “It was a very dramatic score. It was more thrilling than when I scored the final goal,” he laughed.
The 28 teams that won both the 1st and 2nd rounds of the semi-final playoffs ahead of SK advanced to the championship match without exception. SK’s first two seasons in a row advanced to the championship game. Only 1 win left now.
Kim Seon-hyung said, “It is true that our team has an absolute advantage, but we must not be vigilant at times like this. You can’t keep the fire alive,” he said, reaffirming his determination. On the 18th, SK will play the 3rd round of the semifinals at the Jamsil Student Gymnasium.
