“Please do it right from the first quarter,”
Joon-il Kim, the big man of Changwon LG in professional basketball, gave a pleasant blow to his teammates who are starting the game.
Kim Jun-il laughed at a press conference after the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Pro Basketball Wonju DB home game held at the Changwon Sports Park Indoor Gymnasium in Gyeongnam on the afternoon of the 3rd, saying, “Today, on the bench, I cursed at the players who started in the first quarter.” .
Changwon fans, who must have had high expectations after seeing the 17-point come-from-behind victory over Seoul SK in Jamsil two days ago, were cold in the beginning.
LG was dragged 11-24 by DB with a 26% field goal success rate in the first quarter. In the second quarter, the score gap widened to 17 points, the same as the highest score difference in the previous game.
LG demonstrated its strength by overturning a 17-point gap in two consecutive games. After a close match, they defeated DB 76-74 and continued their 4 home wins and the latest 4 wins.
LG coach Cho Sang-hyun expressed regret, saying, “I am very grateful for the players who corrected the wrong part in the beginning and helped me.”
LG has recently shown a tendency to be dragged into the first quarter, and this is something coach Cho Sang-hyun was concerned about even before the game. Concerns turned into reality.
Kim Joon-il contributed greatly to changing the flow. He was put in at the end of the first quarter and made an active play against the solid DB goal. In particular, it was encouraging to lead the team’s upward trend by forming a combination under the goal with Asem Marey for a long time.
Kim Joon-il, who led the come-from-behind victory with 17 points and 5 rebounds, had the right to confidently strike at the main players.
Kim Jun-il said, “The main members, led by Lee Jae-do, must be more alert. They will definitely say that they scored the final goal today, but the team’s point guards often say that they hate it, please tell them to do it right from the first quarter. Today in the first quarter I am happy that the 2nd quarter members, including me and Dante Cunningham, swept up the spilled water and won.”
He continued, “If you look at recent games, the first quarter has never been similar. If you are put in in a situation where you are being pushed back, you will have no choice but to feel responsible. added.
Kim Joon-il was the best star that shone on the court among prominent big men. He played tougher against DB players such as Kim Jong-gyu and Kang Sang-jae. 메이저놀이터
Kim Jun-il said, “I don’t know if it’s because I started playing basketball late, but when I match with a small player, I feel more pressure.” Marey also told me to be more aggressive because you have a good post attack.”
The victory in front of Changwon basketball fans is even more meaningful. Kim Jun-il said, “I’m happy to win the match against the winning streak, and it’s good because the home win rate seems to have improved.”
