Seoul SK’s progress is dazzling. They are ahead with 3 wins and 2 losses in the championship match.
The 6th and 7th games of fate will be held at the Anyang KGC home Anyang Indoor Gymnasium. Game 6 will be held on Children’s Day 5th at 6pm.
It’s unexpected. Most experts predicted KGC’s absolute advantage. Even SK coach Jeon Hee-cheol said, “We are far behind in our objective strength. It’s really not easy to deal with KGC without Choi Jun-yong. If we do it normally, it’s a series with a lot of chances for us to lose by 4-1 or 4-2.” Most of the coaches have their own ‘excuse me’ before a season or a big game, but this series sounded ‘truthful’.
KGC ace Oh Se-geun, who makes a cautious remark, also said, “I hope SK will come up. In this championship match, I am confident that I can pay for the loss last season.”
There was sufficient evidence that the championship series would flow in favor of KGC.
With Choi Jun-yong missing, SK’s core is only Kim Seon-hyeong and Jameel Warney, the departure of Choi Jun-yong reduced not only the main lineup but also the range of second units used, and KGC said that there were spellmen and Byun Jun-hyung who could mark Kim Seon-hyung and Warney. Points, KGC’s big man and wingman resources, such as Oh Se-geun, Moon Seong-gon, and Abando, are superior, and KGC has strengthened second units such as Park Ji-hoon, Bae Byung-jun, Jung Jun-won, and Han Seung-hee this season. The fact that there are Park Ji-hoon and Monroe who can do it was pointed out.
By the way, SK is ahead with 3 wins and 2 losses. If you win only 1 out of 2 games, you will become the main character of the 2nd consecutive championship. Why did this happen?
First of all, we need to look at the first leg. KGC came out without special defensive tactics against Kim Seon-hyung and Warney. It was a dilemma for KGC. During the regular league and the East Asian Super League (EASL), not only the main lineup but also the second unit were strengthened. It was the best this season. I didn’t feel the need to use a transformational tactic that was accompanied by confusion just because it was a championship match. However, this choice was disastrous. Kim Seon-hyung and Warney were much stronger than expected. I succeeded in suppressing the steamer while inserting the plotter to my heart’s content.
In the second game, KGC succeeded in counterattacking with a simple countermeasure. With Moon Seong-gon past Kim Seon-hyung, he opened a left breakthrough. Then, Kim Seon-hyeong felt difficulties, and the synergistic effect between Kim Seon-hyeong and Warney, the strong core of SK, disappeared. The SK attack system collapsed, and this is why KGC won the 2nd and 3rd games relatively easily.
SK seemed to have no more cards. SK coach Jeon Hee-cheol added a 3-2 regional defense (drop zone, match-up zone). The reason was simple. It was to ease the defensive burden of Kim Seon-hyeong, who felt a physical burden in the second half.
However, KGC fell into unexpected confusion. Not only Moon Seong-gon, but also Spellman’s power dropped sharply. In fact, KGC is seasoned. It has a system that can break the regional defense sufficiently, centering on Oh Se-geun. However, due to the mechanical ‘motion offense’, the quick response was delayed. In the championship match, where it was very important to preoccupy the flow of the moment, disastrous results were drawn. In the end, in the 4th game, SK revived the knight. Game 5, SK activated a 3-2 matchup zone, and KGC’s outer guns were silent.
In other word먹튀검증s, unlike SK’s drastic change based on strong organizational power, KGC was not able to properly use its power due to passive response. In the 4th game, Spellman could not come to the match, and in the 5th game, Park Ji-hoon and Monroe’s range of use decreased rapidly.
The second is SK’s concentration and selection. The key is Kim Seon-hyung and Warney’s one-two punch, which are being evaluated as the best ever. However, in order to maximize their power, it was important to utilize ‘Mannequins’ Choi Won-hyuk, Choi Seong-won, and Oh Jae-hyeon. Heo Il-yeong and Choi Bu-gyeong were also the same. Optimized the airlift intervals, the resulting organizational power, and the airlift system. We succeeded in stabbing KGC’s detailed weakness.
The last reason is that two detailed weaknesses inherent in KGC were exposed due to SK’s strong organizational power. Motion offense, which is not suitable for short-term matches, and Spellman’s outskirts attack were cited as weaknesses. However, KGC is a team that stands out for its outstanding power and seasoned beauty centered on Oh Se-geun, Yang Hee-jong, Monroe, and Moon Seong-gon. Although they succeeded in covering two subtle weaknesses, these weaknesses were exposed in SK’s detailed response. While SK focused on Kim Seon-hyeong and Warney in the game, KGC insisted on the 3 outlying stores with relatively low odds. In the 1-point fight, SK had an advantage, and eventually the flow of the match went to SK. This is the key reason SK caught the 4th and 5th games.
However, KGC’s power is still formidable. The last 6th and 7th games will be held in Anyang, the home of KGC. These are the two games where KGC’s great counterattack and SK’s upset will be decided.
