Jang Jae-seok, who changed the atmosphere of Hyundai Mobis, who almost lost helplessly

There was no doubt that Jang Jae-seok (202cm, C) changed the atmosphere.

Ulsan Hyundai Mobis lost 77-80 to Goyang Carrot in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball regular league held at Goyang Gymnasium on the 5th. They have been in a slump with only one win in their last four matches. With 16 wins and 12 losses, the gap with Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation (20 wins and 8 losses), which ranked first, has also increased. 2nd place was also given up. Tied for 3rd place with Seoul SK.

Jang Jae-seok became a member of Hyundai Mobis from the 2020-2021 season. Jang Jae-seok, who became a member of Hyundai Mobis, played all regular league games (54 games). Despite playing just 17 minutes and 59 seconds per game, he recorded career highs of 9.1 points, 4.4 rebounds (1.7 offense) and 1.6 assists.

However, the 2021-2022 season was not like that. He played an average of 14 minutes and 55 seconds in 51 regular league games, and his average record was also 6.8 points, 3.8 rebounds (1.4 offense) and 1.0 assists, and he did not perform as well as in the 2020-2021 season. The aftermath of his injury was great.

So, in an interview during the off-season, Jang Jae-seok said, “Everyone put it comfortably in front of me. He personally played a very disappointing defense. But this season he won’t give me a single goal in front of me. I will go with that mindset. The team goal is, of course, to win. There will be no professional player who does not aim to win.”

Jang Jae-seok, who played 27 regular league games, digested 14 minutes and 44 seconds per game. He is averaging 6.7 points, 3.9 rebounds (1.9 offensive) and 1.4 assists. (Jae-Suk Jang spent an average of 14 minutes and 55 seconds on the court in 51 regular league games in the 2021-2022 season, recording 6.8 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.0 assists)

. However, the efficiency has increased. The 2-point shot success rate (48.8% -> 52.0%) and the paint zone shot success rate (50.8% -> 55.0%) also increased from the 2021-2022 season. Invisible contributions such as his participation in rebounding in the air and defense, wide defensive range, and participation in fast attacks are also high.

Jang Jae-seok is usually in the 1st and 3rd quarters. He pays attention to his own time. That’s why Ham Ji-hoon (198cm, F) can put a lot of effort into the game. Jang Jae-seok’s performance is positive in that sense.

Carrot’s performance was also important. It was also necessary to control Didric Lawson (202cm, F), who tends to be on the outskirts, and block Choi Hyeon-min (195cm, F), who has speed and a long shooting distance.

Jang Jae-seok, included in the starting lineup, faced Lawson. However, Lawson struggled with his ball delivery and change of direction. The reason why Hyundai Mobis fell 2-8 within 2 minutes of the game.

However, Jang Jae-seok continued to hit the carrot paint zone with Gage Prim (205cm, C). He aimed for offensive rebounds and goals under the goal. 4 points and 1 rebound (attack) in 6 minutes and 35 seconds. It didn’t leave a good record. Hyundai Mobis also fell behind at 18-24.

Jang Jae-seok spent the second quarter on the bench. However, Ham Ji-hoon, who replaced Jae-seok Jang, did not have a great influence. It seemed that he could not overcome the muscle bruise he received during the match against LG. There was no synergistic effect with Prim. The team’s best option is also gone. With the best option gone, Hyundai Mobis finished the first half with 30-47.

Jang Jae-seok came back to the court in the third quarter. He was given the task of ‘closing the score gap’. However, Jang Jae-seok could not stop Lawson, his matchup, at all. At the same time, there was a hole in the defense of Hyundai Mobis. Hyundai Mobis, which had a defensive leak, could not overcome the inferiority of around 17 points. 메이저놀이터

However, Jang Jae-seok did not back down easily. Following a quick attack, a goal under the goal or a foul free throw led Hyundai Mobis on the rise. Hyundai Mobis also narrowed the gap with Carrot to 41-55 4 minutes and 39 seconds before the end of the 3rd quarter. Carrot’s first timeout in the second half was also induced.

Jang Jae-seok put more emphasis on basic things such as defense and rebounding. And he gained confidence in scoring under the net. 29.1 seconds before the end of the 3rd quarter, he finished off Ron Jay Avarientos (181cm, G)’s exquisite behind pass with a dunk. 9 points (2 points: 4/4), 2 rebounds and 2 assists in the 3rd quarter alone. Hyundai Mobis also narrowed the gap with Carrot to 53-64.

Jang Jae-seok did his best even at the beginning of the 4th quarter. He helped Hyundai Mobis rise by participating in offensive rebounds and fast attacks. Thanks to this, Hyundai Mobis narrowed the gap with Carrot to 59-64. Jang Jae-seok, who had fulfilled his duties, retired to the bench 2 minutes and 53 seconds into the fourth quarter.

Hyundai Mobis made it 66-68 with Seo Myung-jin (189cm, G)’s 3-pointer 4 minutes and 36 seconds before the end of the game. Carrot followed closely. However, Jeon Seong-hyeon (188cm, F) collapsed with 6 points in a row.

Kim Young-hyeon (184cm, G) succeeded in 3 points in pursuit. However, Hyundai Mobis failed to achieve a come-from-behind victory. Including the playoffs in the 2021-2022 season, he fell into a 7-game losing streak against Carrot. However, there were consolations. The point is that Jang Jae-seok helplessly saved a team that was about to lose.
