It was intense from the beginning. Under the goal 1 Option The fight under the goal between foreign players Prim and Marey was bloody. Prim opened the door with a shot under the goal. Then, LG responded with Lee Jae-do’s 3 stores.
For Hyundai Mobis, Lee Woo-seok and Seo Myung-jin broke through the goal.
LG enjoyed the outside pressure. It was the hidden driving force that caught the first two games. Key outlying cards of Hyundai Mobis, such as Ronjay Avarientos, Seo Myung-jin, and Lee Woo-seok, lost their performance under pressure. It’s been that way since last season.
LG used Lee Jae-do, Yoon Won-sang, and Lee Kwan-hee alternately, and used a strategy to block the starting point of the Hyundai Mobis attack with strong pressure.
OK. In Game 3, Hyundai Mobis particularly emphasized physical struggle to overcome strong pressure. And I ordered a transition & high-lo set offense. This part worked.
At the beginning of the first quarter, Hyundai Mobis had a similar strategy. The background of Lee Woo-seok’s sharp backdoor and Seo Myung-jin’s breakthrough under the goal that overcame physical struggle. And Ham Ji-hoon made a 3-point play with a basket count.
LG also detailed. Lee Jae-do and Marey’s 2v2 attack. Swing pass to the weak side. Afterwards, a pass under the goal followed by Marey came out one after another, leading to two points.
After that, a one-step battle followed a similar pattern. LG pursued Hyundai Mobis by one point, 25-24, thanks to Lee Kwan-hee’s buzzer-beater mid-jumper. End of 1st quarter.
In the second quarter, Hyundai Mobis was stealing a high-ro attack from Jang Jae-seok to Prim. A pretty good start for LG.
The flow of passing was smooth for LG, but the 3 stores did not go in. The reason why LG gave Choi Seung-wook from Samsung and brought in shooter Lim Dong-seop. However, Lim Dong-seop also did not have a good shooting balance. In addition, Hyundai Mobis also had a sharp rotation by a surprise double team against Marey. As the contest went well, I did not give LG a chance to open 3 points.
However, Hyundai Mobis’ high-ro game under the goal was not smooth due to LG’s strong pressure in the set offense. In the end, LG’s counterattack reversed the score of Jung Hee-jae’s fast break. 28-25, LG’s lead. Operation time of Hyundai Mobis.
This time, Hyundai Mobis fought back. Lee Woo-seok made a layup shot with an exquisite euro step. Shin Min-seok’s 3 stores exploded due to the transition game. Before the game, Hyundai Mobis coach Jo Dong-hyun said, “We refined the transition through extreme training such as attacking within 11 seconds and banning more than three dribbles.” Operation time of LG.
LG’s Lee Kwan-hee’s 3-store failure failed, and after that, Hyundai Mobis prevented Maray’s breakthrough under the goal with an exquisite double team. A free throw from Avarientos’ superb pass resulted in a goal by Prim. And Jang Jae-seok’s offensive rebound. The atmosphere continued.
By the way, a defensive weakness occurred on the Avarientos side. After a failed stepback 3, LG connected the pass after Lee Kwan-hee received a screen against Avarientos. Dante Cunningham dunked under the goal. Avarientos’ invisible defensive mistake. Hyundai Mobis rallied with Seo Myung-jin’s 3 points, but LG seemed to succeed in reversing the atmosphere with Kim Joon-il’s foul free throw and 2 points. 36-32, Hyundai Mobis lead by 4 points.
LG operates the second unit in earnest. This season, LG has equipped a strong second unit centered on Cunningham Kim Jun-il and Justin Gutang. However, due to a series of mistakes, the power to pursue was lost. Hyundai Mobis counterattacked the stealing ball with a quick attack and early offense. 40-32, widened to 8 points. Operation time of LG. However, another error occurred. It was a turnover that wasn’t too good for LG. In the end, Yoon Won-sang fouled Seo Myung-jin’s shooting action.
Afterwards, LG launched a two-on-two attack with Gutang and Kim Joon-il, but again Kim Joon-il took a steal and committed a shooting foul on Jang Jae-seok. 2 free throws.
Lee Jae-do tried to change the atmosphere by breaking through the bottom of the goal, but for Hyundai Mobis, Kim Tae-wan scored under the goal with an exquisite assist. Afterwards, with Seo Myung-jin’s picturesque pass, Sims even burst into an alley-oop dunk. In the end, 49-40, Hyundai Mobis led by 9 points. Hyundai Mobis made up for the weakness of the front line with strong physical struggle and concentration, and LG missed the first half with a series of mistakes by the second unit in the middle of the second quarter.
▶In the second half
, LG Maray worked hard. After pushing Prim with strong power, he scored two points under the goal and even got a foul. However, the free throw failed. After the break this season, Marey’s free throws are only 57.1% (8 successful 14 attempts). A state of weakness.
Hyundai Mobis scored easily with a transition. After Lee Woo-seok’s breakthrough, Ham Ji-hoon’s early offense and 2 free throws scored 4 consecutive points. took the flow again.
Instead of a high-ro game, Hyundai Mobis launched a variety of 2-on-2 attacks at the beginning of the third quarter, such as a Spanish pick and roll (a modified pick and roll with another screener added to the 2-on-2 pick and roll) centering on Lee Woo-seok. However, the efficiency was not good. Because of this, it was again a close game with a difference of 6 to 10 points. At this time, LG broke 3 consecutive stores of Jeong Hee-jae and Lee Jae-do. In the first half, the outer cannon, which had not exploded, began to pursue. 57-54, 3 points in an instant.
Hyundai Mobis took a 2-on-2 attack to temporarily change the simple pattern of Hi-Ro, but the lack of perfection provided an excuse for a chase, and LG’s good passwork gave up the flow completely with 3 points bursting.
Operation time of Hyundai Mobis. Hyundai Mobis tried to play a high-ro game centered on Ham Ji-hoon, but LG, which gained momentum, seldom gave them a chance while maximizing their defensive activity. Ultimately, the attack fails. LG’s quick attacker, Yoon Won-sang, got two free throws. But this time, only one succeeded. LG seems to be riding the flow, but it is a situation where it can’t ride.
Then, Hyundai Mobis rallied again with Lee Woo-seok’s 3 points. After that, both teams went into a lull. Prim broke his balance with his trademark left-hand side hook shot. 64-55, 9-point lead. Avarientos, who noticed Marey’s penetration under the goal, made a clever steal. Marey’s foul afterwards. LG had a problem with the ups and downs of the 3-point shot. When the outskirts, which exploded in the beginning, didn’t listen, they had no choice but to find a simple attack route centered on Marey, and the error rate had no choice but to increase.
Hyundai Mobis scored 2 points from Prim through Kim Tae-wan’s witty rap pass and 2 points from Kim Jun-il 1:1, widening the gap to 69-55, 14 points. End of the 3rd quarter.
For LG, it was important to narrow the gap to within 10 points at the beginning of the 4th quarter. Kim Jun-il’s mid-jumper was successful. Then Jaesuk Jang responded with a bottom-of-the-goal shot. Two minutes passed in the fourth quarter, but the score gap did not narrow.
With 6 minutes and 23 seconds left in the game, Kim Jun-il was sent off for five fouls. The height under the goal was lowered. Both teams failed to attack one after another. There was a strong defense, but both teams had clear goals.
Lee Kwan-hee’s layup failed, but Cunningham made an alley-oop dunk. LG narrowed it down to 72-63, 9 points. Lee Kwan-hee’s 3rd store exploded at a critical moment. 7 points.
Hyundai Mobis’ failed attack resulted in two offensive opportunities. LG was in a hurry. Lee Jae-do threw a mid jumper, but it was misfired. Cunningham’s mid jumper also misfired. With 2 minutes and 57 seconds left, Prim made both valuable free throws. 9 points again. 메이저놀이터
Victory and defeat were decided here.
Both teams showed quality performances. LG showed good activity despite the tight schedule. However, there was a lack of decisiveness in the attack. In particular, Ace Marey’s overall yatu decline, and the ups and downs of the 3-point shot still caught LG’s ankle. Hyundai Mobis made up for the inefficiency of the set offense by refining the transition offense after the All-Star break. In addition, the scene of overcoming the struggle on the outskirts was an impressive change for Hyundai Mobis. However, Hyundai Mobis still lacked the effectiveness of 2v2 attacks. Avarientos and Lee Woo-seok both made a 2-2 attack that lacked substance, and eventually created a situation where Hyundai Mobis could not diversify its attack routes except for high-ro games.
