SK pressed Carrot.
The Seoul SK Knights won 82-80 in a match against the Goyang Carrot Jumpers in the 4th round of the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball regular league held at Jamsil Student Gymnasium on the 23rd.
SK (19-14), who had two consecutive wins, jumped to a tie for third place. 5th place Carrot (18-16) had a 5-game winning streak.
In SK, Jameel Warney, who showed his presence in the game, took control of the goal with 30 points and 16 rebounds. Choi Jun-yong (11 points), who was exclusively defending Jeon Seong-hyeon, contributed to the team’s victory by exerting his strength in the 4th quarter attack. Heo Il-yeong (11 points) and Choi Bu-kyung (14 points) also did their part.
For Carrot, Jeon Seong-hyeon scored 22 points, Didric Lawson 19 points, and Jonathan Alledge 17 points, but suffered a disappointing defeat.
The first quarter was dominated by Alledge. Alledge, who showed off a hot shot from the beginning of the game, heated up the court by scoring 14 points, including 4 3-pointers, in the first quarter alone. Carrot, with Alledge at the forefront, took the lead with Jeon Seong-hyun and Lee Jung-hyun’s 3-point shot.
SK, which was pushed by Carrot’s outlying offensive, prevented the score gap from widening further as Warney struggled. The first quarter ended with SK trailing 17-26.
Entering the second quarter, SK pursued with Heo Il-young and Warney leading the attack. Carrot, who was being chased, responded by actively attacking Lee Jong-hyun. However, SK, which did not let go of the reins, caught up to the bottom of the chin with Heo Il-young’s 3-point shot.
With momentum, SK drove Carrot with Choi Jun-yong’s andone play, but could not take the lead due to a turnover. After a close match, SK finished the first half with a score of 42-46.
In the third quarter, SK, which blocked Carrot’s attack well, tied the score with Warney’s consecutive points. SK, which did not miss the moment when Carrot was shaking, accumulated points one after another, centering on Kim Seon-hyung and Warney. 안전놀이터
However, Carrot did not break down easily either. Seong-Hyun Jeon struggled a bit with Choi Jun-Yong’s defense, but Jung-Hyun Lee exerted his strength, and even Lawson’s 3-point shot changed the atmosphere. SK, which had a poor quarter finish, ended the third quarter with a score of 63-61.
Both teams battled hard in the fourth quarter. Carrot led the attack as Lawson moved in and out. However, the flow was broken as they could not use the easy fast-breaking chance, and SK took the lead as Choi Joon-yong put a mid-range jumper in succession.
Carrot immediately responded with Jeon Seong-hyun and Lawson at the center, and the seesaw game continued until the end of the game. When Jeon Seong-hyun and Lawson scored, SK followed up with an inside attack. Carrot, who had difficulty controlling Warney, got a free throw in the process of attempting a 3-point shot with Jeon Seong-hyun leaving one minute left, but missed two, leaving regret.
In the ensuing attack, SK ran away with a 3-point lead as Warney showed off a wonderful pass that saved Choi Bu-kyung. When Carrot followed Jeon Seong-hyun’s surprise breakthrough, SK responded with Warney’s rim attack. In the last Carrot attack, Lawson and Lee Jung-hyun’s shot missed and SK won.
