Will Carrot show a different appearance in the second match?
The Goyang Carrot Jumpers lost 43-99 to Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation in the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Pro Basketball Quarterfinal Playoff 1st leg held at Anyang Gymnasium on the 13th.
Carrot continues to challenge the playoffs despite difficult conditions. However, the results of the first leg were brutal. It was a crushing defeat that will go down in KBL history. Disgraceful records poured in. It became the largest score difference (56 points) in KBL history, and Carrot remained the team with the fewest points scored in a single game (43 points) in the playoffs. 안전놀이터
The movements of the Carrot players, who fought fiercely in the 5th game in Ulsan and reached the semifinals, were too heavy. On the other hand, KGC players who took a break for nearly two weeks ran all over the court from the start to the point that the gap in practice was colorless. The gap had already widened by nearly 20 points in the first quarter, and Carrot was unable to stop KGC from running.
The first game, which was even bigger than the prospect of the series to the extent that it was said to be a fight between David and Goliath. When the gap widened too much, coach Kim Seung-gi gave the main players a break and drew a picture for the second game. It was a sorry choice for Carrot away fans who visited the site, but it was probably a realistic decision.
After the game, coach Kim Seung-gi said, “This is the game I feel most sorry for the fans. Physically, it was so difficult that I thought there would be no second game if I finished it. So I arranged my stamina and I will fight all-out in the second game. I apologize to the fans, saying, “I’m sorry that we had to play a game like this even though there were a lot of fans.
It is painful to fall victim to a dishonorable record, but the more important thing for coach Kim was the rebound in the second game. Coach Kim said, “Honestly, I had the heart to follow and not let that record come out. However, I couldn’t disappoint the fans until the second game. If I made the players run more because of my greed, it would be more difficult and there was no next.”
In the second game, coach Kim promised to play a great game regardless of win or loss. In order for Carrot, who is in a total crisis, to survive, it is necessary to find a way out of the attack. As in the first game, if the scoring power is urgent to exceed 10 points in each quarter, the remaining series will also have to be difficult.
Carrot’s second game hinted at many changes. The most notable thing is Jeon Seong-hyun’s announcement of the selection. Jeon Seong-hyun (11 points), who is not in normal condition, played 23 minutes and 41 seconds in the first game, recording more playing time than expected. It was also spotted making several attempts in the attack to find a breakthrough.
Jeon Seong-hyun, who has raised his senses, is scheduled to start a sortie in the second game. If Jeon Seong-hyun, who drives the opponent’s defense, survives, Carrot’s offensive power can be much better than before because he can even see other players’ chances. Jeon Seong-hyun is not in 100% physical condition, but for now, his starting appearance is also the biggest win that Carrot can take.
Coach Kim Seung-gi said, “Though (in the midst of the defeat), fortunately (former) Seong-hyeon played a lot and got some sense. In the second match, Seong-hyeon started from the start. He expressed his will to do it from the start.”
Carrot’s unique trap defense will also be more active. Carrot came out with a different defense than before, easily giving up a 1-on-1 post-up to Omari Spellman in Game 1. Coach Kim left a message that he would prepare various irregular defenses in the second game instead of a head-to-head match in the first game.
Regarding his determination to advance to the semifinals after passing the semifinals, coach Kim said, “I will never just die.” The series can change only when the performance that has changed in the second game is shown. Will Carrot be able to meet the fans with a completely transformed appearance in the second game held at the same place on the 15th?
