The Seoul Samsung Thunders are about to face off against Suwon KT Sonicboom in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot professional basketball regular league at Jamsil Gymnasium on the 2nd.
Samsung, which caused a stir at the beginning of the season, but amid players’ line injuries, Samsung recorded 13 consecutive losses and is ranked at the bottom. If they lose even the game on this day, they will have the disgrace of tying the record for the most consecutive losses in team history with 14 consecutive losses.
Another sad news came amid difficult team circumstances. It is because the news that Daral Willis, the main scorer, will not be able to play today due to a left wrist injury has spread. Willis led the team’s offense, averaging 22.6 points and 7.4 rebounds per game. 스포츠토토
Samsung coach Eun Hee-seok said, “I really can only sigh. If it’s an injury, my teeth are shaking. I was hit hard in the last game and was diagnosed with a sprained wrist. But he said he couldn’t break his wrist. It would be nice if the team would endure it in a bad situation, but I can’t help it. I respect that part. As a player, the body is the life. “He sighed.
Next, coach Eun said, “If Willis is an aggressive player, Moss is a defensive player. However, Moss has a better relationship with domestic players. Moss will play for more than 30 minutes in today’s game, but he will be satisfied with his hands and feet well matched with the domestic players.” “I’m going to build up a decent score. When Prosper comes out against me, I will inevitably have to give Moss a break.”
Meanwhile, Kim Seung-won, who joined the team through a surprise trade with SK on the 1st, joined the entry that day. It is expected to add strength to the domestic big man team, which is missing Lee Won-seok and Jo Woo-sung.
Coach Eun said, “Following Lee Won-seok and Cho Woo-sung, even Cha Min-seok can’t play today. The pain came to the operated area again. It’s a frustrating situation. All the young big men were left out of the entry. Kim Seung-won worked together for the first time yesterday, but experienced. He is a player with skill. I look forward to his skill. Domestic players such as Ha Yoon-ki and Lee Doo-won are good at their height. If Kim Seung-won can control it to some extent in that area, there will be nothing more to do.”
Lastly, coach Eun said, “I think a lot has changed when I see our players training without roughing it up in such a bad situation. There is a will to try. I feel grateful because they tried to stick together and hold on without being scattered. From senior Lee Jung-hyun and Kim Si-rae to junior and senior Lee Dong-yeop and Lee Ho-hyun, everyone is doing well,” he said, expressing his gratitude to the players.
