Carrot’s triangular formation Jeon Seong-hyeon, Didric Lawson, and Lee Jung-hyeon. These three, who are responsible for finishing the offense, are responsible for 63% of the team’s points, averaging 51.6 points per season. Before the game, Samsung coach Eun Hee-seok also emphasized Lawson’s defense, while being wary of the triangle formation.
Director Eun Hee-seok said, “We have to stop Carrot’s triangular formation. Lee Jung-hyun and Jeon Seong-hyun always blocked it, but they lost because they couldn’t stop Lawson. He instructed foreign players to take responsibility on a one-on-one basis. If you are pushed by a player with power, what should you do if you are also pushed by a player with skill? Today (19th), I asked him to catch it 1-1,” he said, leaving it to foreign players.
However, coach Eun Hee-seok’s wishes collapsed from the start of the game. Lawson showed confidence against Darral Willis and continued his bold one-on-one attack. Although three points did not go in, Lawson scored 15 points in the first quarter alone with a confident 1-1 breakthrough. Willis, who was entrusted with a one-on-one defense, was staggered by Lawson’s crossover, and while giving Andone, he could not use his strength at all in the defense.
Samsung tried to control Lawson by introducing Anthony Moss and changing the matchup to Jang Min-guk, but it was not easy to stop Lawson who was on fire. Lawson scored 11 points in the third quarter, in which he only played 5 minutes due to foul trouble.
In the end, Lawson scored 34 points in just 29 minutes. Although he failed to score a single 3, which was his long-term goal, he showed high efficiency by making 12 out of 17 2 points. Lawson also had a triple-double performance with 14 rebounds and 6 assists as the team won 92-86.
Willis also scored 30 points and played his part in the offense. However, Lawson could not be stopped on defense and was dragged around throughout the game. In particular, due to being pushed back in the early fight, Samsung also ended most of the game only chasing the opponent.
After the game, manager Eun Hee-seok said, “It is my fault. He believed it because he said he was confident 1-on-1. He thought that even if Lawson allowed a goal, Willis would offset it with an attack. He was thinking of using Anthony Moss as a professional defender, but Moss has been out of shape in recent matches. It’s my fault for not preparing for that part. I am reflecting,” he regretted.
Carrot, who had a pleasant victory thanks to Lawson’s performance, finished the break in 5th place. On the other hand, Samsung, after escaping from a long losing streak, fell into a third losing streak again and moved away from 9th place Daegu Korea Gas Corporation by 3 games.
