KGC, which lost 69-77 in the first game held on the same place on the 25th and lost momentum, increased the chance of winning to 41.7% with the victory that dayㅋㅋㅋ벳.

KGC led the victory with 21 points and 9 rebounds by Oh Se-geun, the signboard of the day. Lens Abando also added strength with 18 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 3 steals. Byun Jun-hyung and Omari Spellman each scored 13 points.

In defense, Moon Seong-gon’s performance stood out. He scored only 4 points and 6 rebounds that day, but blocked SK’s ace Kim Seon-hyung with 10 points. Moon Seong-gon blocked Kim Seon-hyung’s path with his unique wide range of activities and strong pressure.

Kim Seon-hyung achieved a double-double in two consecutive games with 10 points and 10 assists, but his presence was not as strong as in the first game, when he played an active role with 22 points and 12 assists. In the first game, KGC, who had been hit by Kim Seon-hyeong’s floaters several times, reaped victory by breaking the opponent’s flow with Moon Seong-gon’s defense.

In an interview with reporters after the match, Seong-gon Moon said, “I lost the first game, but it’s fortunate that I was able to change the atmosphere by winning the second game.” I was able to stop it because Spellman helped me well.”

He continued, “(Kim) Seon-hyung has a very good rhythm, but I tried not to be fooled by it. If I tried to block both sides, it would break through, so I tried to catch only one side.”

Moon Seong-gon collided with an opponent during defense that day and fell on the court and was unable to get up for a while, raising concerns.

However, he joked, “When I collided with (Heo) Il-young and fell down, I was surprised that I couldn’t breathe well for a moment, but I’m fine now.”

On this day, Oh Se-geun, who scored the most points for both teams, turned the ball to his teammates.

Oh Se-geun gave a thumbs up, saying, “In the first game, we couldn’t stop Sun-yeong and Jamil Warney, but today our defense was different. (Moon) Seong-gon did a good job of pressing, and the spellman also played a good role.”

He continued, “In the first game, I gave scores to Sang-ri and Warney too easily, but today, even if I threw away a little bit, I was able to block it easily by sticking to the defense early in the front.”

KGC, who finished their 2 home games with 1 win and 1 loss, will now move to Jamsil, where they will play the 3rd, 4th, and 5th games. Depending on the situation, the winning team may be eclipsed in Jamsil.

Oh Se-geun said, “It will be difficult, but it would be nice to win the championship in Jamsil by driving this momentum.” “It is a concentration fight now because both teams are having a hard time.
