Reporter Jang Bo-in = Daegu Korea Gas Corporation, a professional basketball player, escaped from a long 9-game losing streak.
Korea Gas Corporation beat Seoul Samsung 89-66 in the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball regular league away game held at Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium in Seoul on the 18th.
KOGAS, which lost all of its recent 9 league games and recorded the most consecutive losses since its foundation, sounded the road to victory in 10 games.
KOGAS, which recorded 14 wins and 28 losses, maintained 9th place. In addition, they broke 5 consecutive losses on the road, and recorded 4 consecutive wins against Samsung this season.
Leading by Lee Dae-seong, who scored 22 points, Devon Scott (17 points, 9 rebounds), Lee Dae-heon (14 points), and Murphy Holloway (13 points, 12 rebounds) scored double digits to break the losing streak.
Samsung failed to escape from the bottom (12-30) due to two consecutive losses while Kim Si-rae and Anthony Moss struggled with 11 points side by side.
From the first quarter, KOGAS took a 23-14 lead as Lee Dae-heon (8 points) and Lee Dae-seong (7 points) worked hard.
Samsung only scored 4 points in the first 5 minutes after the start of the 2nd quarter, and the gas corporation took advantage of this gap to run away further.
In the middle of the quarter, Cho Sang-yeol’s consecutive three-point shots followed by Lee Dae-heon’s outside shot split the rim to make the score 41-20.
Samsung’s Kim Si-rae, Lee Dong-yeop, and Lee Won-seok scored belatedly, but KOGAS finished the first half with 46-28 despite Jo Sang-yeol’s injury in the second half of the quarter.
KOGAS overcame Samsung’s pursuit until the third quarter and maintained a 67-46 lead.
However, it was also faced with a crisis in the 4th quarter on this day due to the’lack of support’, which is considered a weakness. 메이저놀이터
Samsung, which had struggled with outside hunting by putting only one 3-point shot until the 3rd quarter, came back to life in the 4th quarter, and pursued 64-73 with 3 points from Lee Jung-hyun and Kim Si-rae.
However, KOGAS did not give up the flow and kept the victory. Scott scored 10 points in the 4th quarter, and Lee Dae-seong also showed off his ace appearance by operating the scorer in the right place.
At the Wonju Gymnasium, Seoul SK defeated Wonju DB 92-73.
After finishing the first quarter with a score of 25-16, SK never lost the lead.
Jamil Warney recorded 19 points and 9 rebounds, Oh Jae-hyun scored 15 points, and Choi Seong-won scored 14 points to take the lead in the victory.
SK, which had three consecutive wins, became the sole third place (26 wins, 17 losses). DB, who suffered 5 consecutive losses, stayed in 8th place (16 wins, 25 losses).
