SK coach Jeon Hee-chul is desperate for offensive rebounds. Every time players grab a rebound, SK coaches’ wallets are getting thinner.
Seoul SK, led by coach Jeon Hee-cheol, won 66-60 in the 5th game of the championship match against the 2022-2023 SKT Adot professional basketball Anyang KGC held at the Jamsil Student Gymnasium on the 3rd. With this victory, SK has only one win left in its two consecutive championships.
It was a fierce match, befitting the watershed game 5 of the series. SK took a double-digit lead in the first half, but was pushed back in the 3rd quarter (11-23) and had a close match in the 4th quarter. Warney shone in the fierce seesaw game in the 4th quarter. Warney led the attack with scoring fouls and several floaters. In addition, Oh Jae-hyun ended the game with a 3-point shot.
Coach Jeon Hee-cheol said, “It was a game where both teams scored low and the field goal rate was low. There is nothing much to evaluate by winning. First of all, I am very happy to be able to go to Game 7. I, too, was out of my mind today (the 3rd).
On this day, SK’s specialty, rim attack, had a hard time. It is because of the existence of KGC Abando. Abando effectively prevented SK from breaking through, recording only 6 blocked shots that day.
Coach Jeon Hee-chul said, “The timing of the players’ shots was too obvious. After the game, I jokingly told (Heo) Il-young, “If you do that, I will block too.” Abando’s elasticity is really amazing. I think he jumps the highest among Asians,” he admired.크크크벳
Nevertheless, the reason why SK was able to win was Oh Jae-hyun’s performance and a rebound that was not pushed back. Director Jeon Hee-chul said, “(Oh) Jae-hyeon did a really good job. He felt his pent-up thirst subside. And he’s really emphasizing rebounding with his players. Rebounding is really willpower and fighting spirit.”
He continued, “Actually, coaches are betting money on offensive rebounds. I usually spend a lot of money, but coaches spend a lot of money in the championship game (laughs). Currently, coach Kim Ki-man wrote the most. That’s why we are so desperate for a rebound.”
