Lee Jung-hyun (191cm, G) changed the flow of the game.
Seoul Samsung lost 61-64 against Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation in the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball regular league game held at Anyang Indoor Gymnasium on the 4th.
Samsung won 73-70 against Suwon KT on the 2nd and escaped from the long and long swamp of 13 consecutive losses. After clearing the burden on their minds, Samsung prepared for the match with determination. However, the role of Anthony Moss became important as Darral Willis, a foreign player with the first option, was absent due to a wrist injury.
In the first quarter, Samsung lost the lead and made the game difficult. Missing Byun Jun-hyung (186cm, G) and Omari Spellman (206cm, F), he gave up an easy shot and gave up two turnovers, which was painful.
In the second quarter, Samsung aimed for a turnaround by putting in veteran Lee Jung-hyun. Lee Jung-hyun’s movement was light thanks to his stamina arrangement in the first quarter. Lee Jung-Hyun found a shot feeling by succeeding in the outskirts and made a foul free throw with 8:33 left in the second quarter to tie the score at 21-21. 먹튀검증
With Lee Jung-hyun’s input, Samsung was able to diversify their offense. Lee Jung-hyun came in and pulled out the defense, and even in the rebound fight through boxing, it was not pushed back to 10-10.
Lee Jung-hyun’s performance continued in the third quarter. In particular, there were many outside attempts, and four were successful, helping Samsung to pursue. Through organic movements with guards such as Kim Si-rae (178cm, G) and Lee Dong-yeop (193cm, G), Lee Jung-hyun was able to take advantage of the court and take a shot opportunity.
In the 4th quarter, the field goal success rate was only 0% (0/3), but with 2 minutes and 5 seconds left in the 4th quarter, he got 3 foul free throws in a 3-point attempt. Lee Jung-hyun made all three free throws, making it a one-position game with a score of 59-62.
Lee Jung-hyeon tried to cross the rim just before the end, but he failed to pass the rim and had to watch the team lose.
Although Samsung lost, Lee Jung-hyun’s performance on this day is encouraging. Lee Jung-hyun recorded 22 points and five 3-pointers, the most points scored by both teams. Lee Jung-hyun personally scored more than 20 points in 43 days since he scored 21 points against Wonju DB on December 24 last year.
Regarding Lee Jeong-hyeon’s performance, KGC Ginseng Corporation manager Kim Sang-shik, the enemy general, said, “(Lee) Jeong-hyeon is good at three-point shots and motions derived from two-man games. He told me to block the 3-point shot, but he even allowed the drive-in,” he praised Lee Jung-hyun’s performance.
Fans are paying attention to whether Lee Jung-hyun will save Samsung’s pride for the rest of the season with the seasoned beauty of a veteran.
