With this win, he escaped from a three-game losing streak. This is the first win against kt this season. It climbed to 5th place alone. It was a significant victory despite many wounded people. Lee Dae-seong, who scored 25 points, and Lee Seung-hyeon, who scored 23 points, led the attack. Murphy Holloway also contributed 16 points.

After the match, coach Eul-jun Kang said, “Thanks to our players, the result was good.

In a situation where there were injured players, there were good results thanks to the other players playing responsibly.”

“All the players did well, but Lee Dae-sung and Lee Seung-hyun showed their ace instincts, and the Sixth Men showed 120% of their skills, which led to good results.”

He also expressed anticipation in the second half of the season for winning the last game before the All-Star break. Coach Kang said, “After winning like this, the players who are resting from injuries will feel at ease. I have hopes that the team will become a stronger team when the players return after the All-Star break.” In the second half, Kim Kang-sun may return. In addition, Si-yoon Moon, a rookie who joined as a substitute on the same day, scored 4 points and 5 rebounds, which was a big help. Manager Kang said, “(Moon) Siyun’s 5 rebounds were really great. If you do this, your playing time will increase and you can grow into a good player. Even after the game, he encouraged me to do it like today.”

On the other hand, coach Seo Dong-cheol of kt, who fell from joint 1st place to 2nd place alone due to the loss that day, said, “Regardless of wins and losses, I haven’t been able to find a bad performance recently. I will rest well during the rest period and prepare well before planting again.”
