At the same time, Lee Kwan-hee is LG’s captain and key resource. He is also a player who needs to make up for the sluggishness of Lee Jae-do and Asem Marey.
Lee Kwan-hee showed off his offensive ability from the start. Made his team’s first five points with his own hands. And 0.2 seconds before the end of the first quarter, he hit a 3-pointer from the left corner. I made a score to widen the gap with SK. For the first quarter, he showed the ‘God’s view’ mode.

NBA point guard Chris Paul has the nickname ‘CP3’. A nickname that is a combination of Chris Paul’s first name and his jersey number.
An excellent point guard in the KBL also has a nickname similar to Chris Paul. Lee Jae-do (180cm, G) is also like that. Lee Jae-do’s nickname is ‘JD4’, which is a combination of his name and uniform number.
Lee Jae-do is LG’s main ball handler and ace. He is a player who does his job as an offensive point guard. However, he has been sluggish lately. LG coach Cho Sang-hyeon was also worried about Lee Jae-do’s sluggish performance.
However, Lee Jae-do brushed off the sluggishness in the second quarter against SK. He took care of both explosive power and efficiency. In particular, he did not miss SK’s momentary defensive loophole 15.7 seconds before the end of the second quarter. He made SK collapse with a left hand lay-up following a breakthrough. The gap between LG and SK was widened thanks to Lee Jae-do.

* All of them were in front
of LG, and LG suppressed SK’s offensive power well throughout the game. In particular, SK’s key scorer, Jamil Warney (199cm, C), was blocked. The reason why LG only conceded 29 points in the first half (1Q: 12 points, 2Q: 17 points).
LG showed a sticky defense in the 3rd quarter as well. The defense of the paint zone, centered on Asem Marey, went well, and Maray’s solid defense gave strength to the domestic players. Domestic players were also able to focus on their matchups with peace of mind.
Jeong In-deok (196cm, F), who was faithful to the defense, also showed off a 3-point shot. Successfully scored 3 points from the left corner. SK’s soul was completely taken out. LG, which has never given more than 20 points per quarter, showed a 20-point gap with SK. The first win against SK was in front of me.

LG, ahead by 20 points, pushed harder. Lee Jae-do, who was quiet in the 3rd quarter, exploded again in the 4th quarter. LG ran away to 71-43 7 minutes and 45 seconds before the end of the game.
SK rarely hired the best members. Only one of Kim Seon-hyung (187cm, G) or Choi Jun-yong (200cm, F) was used, and Jameel Warney continued to sit on the bench. He thought he had given up before LG. I felt defeat.
But LG was different. Marey, who didn’t rest even for a second, continued to come out. Key resources such as Lee Jae-do, Lee Kwan-hee, and Jeong In-deok continued to step on the court. At the end, most of the key players retired to the bench. That’s how I got my first win against SK. The composition of the top ranks has also become more compact.
