2nd place Changwon LG challenges 4 consecutive wins against 1st place Anyang KGC.
Changwon LG will have an away game against Anyang KGC at Anyang Gymnasium on the 15th in the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Pro Basketball Round 5. LG, who ranks first in the away win rate (0.800), will pursue the leader KGC with 4 consecutive wins on the road.
2nd place LG recorded 8 wins and 2 losses in the last 10 games, beating Seoul SK and Ulsan Hyundai Mobis in 3rd place by 3 games. Nevertheless, as KGC continued its upward trend with 8 consecutive wins during the same period, the ride with the leader was maintained at 3.5 games. In response, coach Jo Sang-hyun said, “Now it is more important to play well than to ride.” 안전놀이터
Changwon LG coach Cho Sang-hyun
There was no significant change in preparation for the game. Since the players are aware that it is an important match, I did not say anything special to avoid burdening them. During training as well, the overall atmosphere is good, so I told them not to be vigilant and to keep the basics.
Q. How is Omari Spellman’s defense?
I plan to leave it to (Jeong) Hee-jae or (Seo) Min-soo. Spellman’s individual skills are unavoidable, but he ordered to reduce the number of points given in transitions and rebounds. If the prepared defense does not work, Dante Cunningham or (Kim) Joon-il will take over.
Q. How do you prepare for the opponent’s offensive rebound?
Rebound is important to go higher. Because the opponent is good at 3-point shooting, there are a lot of long rebounds, so I asked the players in front to take good positions.
