Confident Abando, “I’m working hard to defend the team wants”
Lens Abando (24, 188cm), who scored 20 points with confident play, is gradually adapting to team defense.
Anyang KGC won 100-86 in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Pro Basketball Ulsan Hyundai Mobis match held at Ulsan Dongchun Gymnasium on the 11th, winning 4 consecutive wins. On this day, Abando played an active role with 20 points, 3 rebounds, 2 steals and 2 blocks.
After the game, Abando said, “The coach told us to win and have a good rest because it is the last game before the All-Star Game and there will be no games for 9 days after the game today (11th). It was a good victory because of my confidence and the strong will of my teammates to win,” he said of his victory impressions.
In the third round match against Hyundai Mobis on the 31st of last month, KGC won 77-68, but Abando only scored 4 points and 1 rebound, so he could not laugh comfortably. However, unlike the third round, Abando, who contributed greatly to the team’s victory, visited the interview room with a bright expression.
Abando recalled the last match, which was sluggish, saying, “I didn’t do well in the match against Hyundai Mobis in the third round, and I had a bad game after that.” “But the coaches and coaches always give me faith, and my colleagues also give me faith. I played with confidence, so I played a good game.” He thanked the team for believing in him. 온라인바카라
What director Kim Sang-shik wants from Abando is defense. Before the game, coach Kim Sang-shik told Abando what he had ordered, saying, “It’s okay if Abando shoots 10 shots and doesn’t go all in, so I told him to pay attention to the defense.”
Abando said, “I don’t think I’ve fully adapted to the Korean-style team defense yet.” Moon Seong-gon and Yang Hee-jong always tell us a lot after training so that they can adapt to the team defense.”
Abando, who has been living in Korea for four months, said, “Korea is a nice country, but living in a foreign country away from family, friends, and loved ones is difficult. But I try to enjoy the day to the fullest. The team gave me a good opportunity and I am living happily.”
