1 win that I won like tenacity… Samsung avoided ‘most consecutive defeat nightmare’
The match that I did my best to escape from losing streak was ‘happy ending’. It was a difficult game again this time due to line injuries of key players. However, with a fearsome concentration, he showed his back, and this time, he did not miss the victory that seemed to be caught. Seoul Samsung narrowly escaped the shame of tying the record for the team’s most consecutive losses.
Samsung won 73-70 after a close match in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot professional basketball home game against Suwon KT held at Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium on the 2nd. Samsung, who lost 13 times since the match against Carrot in Goyang on December 22 last year, not only escaped from a long losing streak with this victory, but also escaped the crisis of tying the team’s record for most consecutive losses set in November 2011. Samsung caught up with Daegu Korea Gas Corporation (13 wins and 23 losses) in 9th place with 11 wins and 26 메이저사이트 losses in the season by 2.5 games. On the other hand, KT recorded 16 wins and 21 losses, dropping from 6th to 8th.
Samsung was in the midst of a losing streak recently, and even injured players continued to burn their stomachs. Even ahead of the match, sad news came that foreign player Darral Willis, the main scorer, could not play for two weeks due to a left wrist injury. Even Cha Min-seok, the only remaining big man resource, was unable to play due to the recurrence of pain in his ankle, which had undergone surgery. Kim Seung-won, who was recruited through a trade with Seoul SK the previous day, had to rush to the game that day.
Samsung coach Eun Hee-seok was frustrated by the continued bad news of the injury, saying, “Now, when it comes to injuries, my teeth tremble.” However, “Even in such a bad situation, our players do not train roughly. The injured are pouring in like a domino phenomenon, but we are trying to stand together and endure,” he showed a strong will to escape the losing streak.
Samsung faced the second half with a 38-33 lead thanks to foreign player Anthony Moss (21 points, 12 rebounds), who scored 12 points in the first half alone. Samsung, which seemed to have a chance to win by maintaining a steady lead until the middle of the third quarter, was swept away by KT Ha Yoon-ki (15 points) and finally allowed a 51-51 tie and finished the third quarter. After about 40 seconds of the 4th quarter, Samsung allowed a turnaround by giving away a dunk shot to KT foreign player Lester Prospy (10 points, 10 rebounds), and then engaged in a bloody battle with KT. Then, with 42 seconds left until the end of the game, Kim Shi-rae (11 points, 4 assists)’s steal, followed by Lee Jung-hyun’s (16 points) quick break, turned the game over to 71-70. I put them all in and nailed them.
Meanwhile, at the Goyang Gymnasium, the away team, Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation won a great 82-65 victory over Goyang Carrot and took the lead with 27 wins and 11 losses.
