After suffering a record-breaking defeat that will go down in history, they paid back with a cool complete victory just two days later. Carrot, the uplifting player in the playoffs, can laugh only when Lee Jung-hyeon (24) lives.
Carrot won 89-75 in the second leg of the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Pro Basketball Quarterfinal Playoff (3 out of 5) against Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation held at Anyang Indoor Gymnasium on the 15th. Carrot, who was defeated by 43-99, 56 points in the first game on the 13th, and was humiliated with the largest margin of defeat in the professional basketball regular league and playoffs, succeeded cleanly in two days. The third game between the two teams will be held on the 17th at Carrot’s home, Goyang Gymnasium.
Carrot coach Kim Seung-gi summoned all the key players to the bench and gave them a break when the match was decided early in the first game. Maybe that’s why the movements of the carrot players in the second game were different from the first game.
In particular, Lee Jung-hyun, who turned on the ‘Ace’ mode on behalf of Jeon Seong-hyun in the playoffs, was dazzling. Lee Jung-hyun, who led Carrot to the semifinals with an average of 24.0 points in five playoff games against Ulsan Hyundai Mobis, is expected to play an active role in this semifinal playoff. However, in the first game, due to the aftermath of pouring stamina in the playoffs in the 6th round, he could not show his skills and only scored 4 points. 토토사이트
The second match, which I prepared for, was different. Lee Jung-hyun played the most of both teams at 37 minutes and 31 seconds and scored the most with 32 points. His 3-pointers threw 7 and hit 4, along with 5 steals as well. The nutritional value of scoring was also excellent, focusing on 11 points in the 2nd quarter and 17 points in the 3rd quarter, which were the match points, enabling a tight fight with KGC. 4 minutes and 32 seconds before the end of the third quarter, which was trailing 56-57, he overturned the game with two free throws. Following this, he made a direct steal in the defense and assisted Lawson’s fast attack, followed by a successful defense followed by a 3-point shot, bringing the atmosphere completely to Carrot. KGC’s Byun Jun-hyeong, who is considered the best guard in the league along with Kim Seon-hyung, also performed well with 16 points, 5 assists and 4 rebounds, but was overshadowed by Lee Jung-hyun’s tremendous performance.
Coach Kim, who emphasized that Lee Jung-hyun should play an active role in this playoff, had no choice but to give a thumbs up to Lee Jung-hyun’s performance that day. Coach Kim praised Lee Jung-hyun, saying, “If Lee Jung-hyun does today, wouldn’t he be MVP? Lee Jung-hyun’s fighting spirit is shining brightly.
