KGC destroyed the chance to tie like gold at the end of the game. 79-82, 4.4 seconds before the end of the game, Lens Abando attempted a 3-point shot, but won three free throws due to a foul by Warney. If you put all of them in, you can expect an overtime game. Abando calmly succeeded in the first and second pitches. However, he couldn’t overcome the tension and missed his third free throw. SK Choi Jun-yong secured the victory with a rebound. With this victory, SK posted its 12th win (11th loss) and broke through the 50% win rate, entering the top 4.
The atmosphere at the beginning of the game was led by KGC. KGC took the early lead from the bottom of the goal with Omari Spellman at the fore. Spellman showed strength in the confrontation with Warney. In the middle of the quarter, Spellman’s rebound under the goal led to Abando’s fast break, and KGC widened the score gap. The first quarter ended 26-17. Even in the second quarter, SK still couldn’t use its strength under the goal. However, as the team’s main weapon, Kim Seon-hyung and Warney’s 2-on-2 play revived, they quickly began to pursue. The score gap was instantly reduced. A 1-2 goal difference continued. This pattern continued in the third quarter.
At the end of the game, SK’s outer cannons spewed fire. Facing the 4th quarter with a score of 58-61, SK tied the score with Choi Seong-won’s 3 points right after the start. However, KGC made it 66-63 with Abando and Spellman at the fore. Again, SK made it 66-66 with Heo Il-young’s 3 points. The tight balance continued until the end of the game. However, with about 1 minute and 40 seconds left, Choi Jun-yong’s 3-pointer burst in 73-76, and the atmosphere began to lean towards SK.
Here, Kim Seon-hyung delivered the decisive blow. He succeeded in two steals in a row, and scored all of them to make it 80-76. It was the point with about 30 seconds left. After the operation time, KGC caught up with Spellman’s 3-pointer again by 1 point, but this time Kim Seon-hyung broke through the bottom of the goal and assisted Choi Jun-yong’s 2-point shot to make the score 82-79.
