Samsung, aiming for the last place, is gradually erasing the pain of 13 consecutive losses
Although it is in a dark tunnel, the ray of light has not disappeared yet.
Professional basketball Samsung won 83-77 in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot professional basketball round 5 home game against DB held at Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium in Seoul on the 13th. Samsung, which broke the chain of two consecutive losses, reported 12 wins (28 losses) for the season. The ride with the 9th place Korea Gas Corporation was reduced to only one game. 스포츠토토
DB, who was busy fighting in the 6th round, suffered 4 consecutive losses. The fact that DB, which has been playing the season without Doo Kyung-min since last December, lost to Kang Sang-jae due to an injury that day was a point that Samsung needed to target, and it did it effectively.
The beginning of the first quarter was difficult. DB, under the command of Lee Seon Albano, put pressure on Samsung with a series of fast attacks. Kim Jong-kyu, who started as a starter, also showed good momentum in the beginning. However, Samsung slowly built up points and aimed for a counterattack. At the center was Lee Jung-hyun. Kim Jong-gyu took advantage of the break and scored 11 points, including two 3-pointers, to bring the lead to Samsung.
I didn’t miss the victory I caught here. When Kim Jong-gyu took a break, he repeatedly led the turnover of DB, who was wandering without an ace, and then took a quick transition to set the mood. Another thing that caught my eye was the overwhelming offensive rebound. Samsung, who recorded a whopping 21 offensive rebounds, completely defeated DB with a score of 21-5 in the second chance scoring.
Darall Willis, who returned from a wrist injury, also performed well. Coach Eun Hee-seok said before the game, “Willis hasn’t been able to touch the ball much lately. Anthony Moss is having a hard time, so even if he endures for 10 to 15 minutes, it will be a great strength.” He played more games than Moss and scored 18 points on offense. He also grabbed 8 rebounds. Stocking up on his stamina, Moss caught fire with 13 points and 18 rebounds.
In addition, a total of five players, Lee Jung-hyun (15 points), Shin Dong-hyuk (13 points), and Lee Ho-hyun (10 points), scored double-digit points and took an even attack pattern. Right before the end of the game, DB narrowed the gap by more than 10 points and chased Samsung terribly. However, in the end, he overcame the pursuit and added a valuable victory.
Before I knew it, the ride with 9th place was one game. It was hard to imagine even at the time of the 13th consecutive loss that lasted from December 22nd to January 30th of last year. Of course, the biggest reason is that KOGAS recently fell into a swamp of 8 consecutive losses, but it is also true that Samsung’s performance is improving little by little. After escaping a losing streak with a win against KT, he also lost a 3-point match against the leader KGC, but showed sufficient competitiveness. That’s how Samsung is erasing the nightmare little by little along with the dream of getting out of last place.
