Coach Sang-sik Kim has been running the season by increasing the utilization of bench members in the second quarter. It was a mercenary technique considering the fact that he had to digest the tight schedule in February and play the East Asian Super League in March.
Against Hyundai Mobis, it was also important how to withstand the second quarter, which was 24-25, and the bench members performed like Altoran and lived up to coach Kim Sang-sik’s trust. In KGC, Oh Se-geun, who complained of ankle pain at the end of the 1st quarter, was away throughout the 2nd quarter, but Kim Kyung-won made a surprise 3-point shot, digesting all 10 minutes and minimizing the gap.
In addition, Jung Joon-won succeeded in making an additional free throw following a footback score, and Park Ji-hoon also energized the team by making a block shot on Ronsay Avarientos’ mid-range shot and even making a bold breakthrough. In addition to Spellman, KGC faced Hyundai Mobis by scoring 29 points, although all of the 4 starting players played less than 5 minutes in the 2nd quarter.
Let’s continue the close battle with the bench members, and KGC brought the flow with the main axes in the 3rd quarter. While Oh Se-geun (8 points) and Spellman (7 points) concentrated their firepower, Moon Seong-gon contributed with his strengths, wide defensive range and rebound.
A virtuous cycle took place in the fourth quarter as well. Even Yang Hee-jong, the most senior, added strength. Yang Hee-jong led the team’s lead by inducing an offensive foul from Avarientos at the beginning of the 4th quarter, and taking on one-on-one defense with Ham Ji-hoon depending on the situation. At the beginning of the 4th quarter, he also made a 3-point shot that poured cold water on Hyundai Mobis. The 3-point shot that widened the gap to 11 points in the middle of the 4th quarter also came from bench member Bae Byung-jun.
The difference between the bench points (25-23) was not so great, but it should be considered that Hyundai Mobis started Kim Tae-wan instead of Avarientos (10 points) to strengthen the defense at the beginning of the game. Both teams fought a bloody battle exchanging turns 27 times in total, but the difference in energy levels created by the bench members was huge. Thanks to that, KGC ran on a 7-game winning streak after a close match.
The 7 consecutive wins is the team’s most consecutive wins this season. The previous record was 6 consecutive victories written by KGC twice and once by KT, who enjoyed the effect of replacing foreign players. From the solid starting lineup to the bench members who will ease their physical burden. It is the driving force for KGC to cruise toward its second regular league championship in its career.
