SK coach Jeon Hee-chul also made full preparations. Coach Jeon Hee-cheol said, “I kept getting hit with 3-pointers in the first and third games. In particular, in the third game, I threw 35 shots and scored them with a 60% chance. My head was sore until the next day.” (Kim) Seon-hyeong – (Choi) Seong-won – (Oh) Jae-hyeon will be put in for normal defense. Carrot has learned how to break down the switch defense. Didric Lawson’s 2-on-2 attack causes a mismatch. . In the last 3 games, he threw an average of 40 or more 3-pointers. He threw more than usual. We will minimize miss matches as much as possible.”

However, SK gave up four 3-point shots to Jonathan Alledge (205cm, F) from the first quarter. Jeon Seong-hyeon (189cm, F) and Lee Jeong-hyeon (187cm, G) also allowed 3-point shots.

Coach Jeon Hee-cheol did not operate the 3-guard system from the 2nd quarter. A big lineup using Choi Jun-yong (200cm, F) – Heo Il-yeong (195cm, F) – Choi Bu-gyeong (200cm, F) was utilized.

The average age of the big lineup was 34 years old. The youngest players were 30-year-old Choi Jun-yong and Jamil Warney (200cm, C), and the oldest player, Heo Il-young, was 39 years old. 

Even so, I didn’t feel any physical problems at all. Warney played all 40 minutes, and Choi Jun-yong also played for 38 minutes and 24 seconds, excluding the time when he grabbed his knee and went out. Kim Seon-hyeong (187cm, G), Heo Il-yeong, and Choi Bu-gyeong also played more than 30 minutes.

The offense of the big lineup was also powerful. Warney and Choi Bu-kyung came to the fore. Choi Bu-kyung showed confidence in Lee Jong-hyun (203cm, C) and Didric Lawson (202cm, F).

Coach Jeon Hee-chul said after the game, “I wanted to confuse the opponent. That’s why I didn’t play switch defense in the first quarter. It’s difficult to defend Carrot’s 3-point shot with normal defense. We have to use various irregular defenses. You have to move actively to have a chance to win.”

Thanks to SK’s efforts, Carrot’s 3-point shot success rate was below average. It recorded about 30.5%, 5.8% lower than the average. SK’s winning factor was found in Carrot’s 3-point shot success rate.
