The problem is that Carrot ace Jeon Seong-hyeon was ruled out of the first and second games of the playoffs due to ‘sudden hearing loss’. Before the game, coach Kim Seung-gi of Carrot said, “Jeon Seong-hyun is concentrating his efforts on his comeback while taking steroids approved by the KADA (Korea Anti-Doping Agency).” He said, “In the regular league, we were good for Hyundai Mobis, but this series will not be easy. It is all the more so because there is no Jeon Seong-hyun. I will focus on stopping Avarientos.”

Hyundai Mobis manager Jo Dong-hyun said, “Carrot is quite picky. We use a small lineup unconditionally, but our attacks should not focus only on mismatches under the goal. In that case, we can dissuade the opponent.” Director Kim Seung-gi also said, “We have to confuse the opponent while driving without hesitation.”

▶1st Quarter =

Carrot’s defense worked from the start of the reversed attack patterns of both teams. A surprise corner double team. Hyundai Mobis stole a clumsy cross pass.

The fight between the two teams was quite intense from the start of the search.

▶2nd Quarter = Jeon Seong-hyun’s Painful Vacancy

Carrot’s best player in the 1st quarter was Lawson. He lured two Hyundai Mobis defenders in the attack and then subtracted an exquisite pass. The scene where Ace Gravity was manifested. More importantly, he grabbed 7 rebounds. Hyundai Mobis is a team with good rebounding ability, and grabbed 4 offensive rebounds. Here, Carrot was able to succeed in reversing over the early inferiority.

The start in the second quarter was Jonathan Alledge, not Lawson.

Carrot’s biggest weakness was the absence of Jeon Seong-hyun. A symbolic scene for this void. With Lee Jung-hyun blocked, Lawson was the starting point for Carrot’s attack. Players were placed in the left and right corners, and spacing was maximized in the center. Lawson’s 1v1. However, Hyundai Mobis, who saw this, carried out an instant double team, and eventually it took 24 seconds. Of course, Carrot immediately took advantage of Lawson’s face-up mismatch by 2 to 2, not 1 to 1, and Lawson succeeded in a basket count 3-point play in the next attack. However, since Jeon Seong-hyeon was absent, the attack route was simplified, and Hyundai Mobis’ target defense was threatened. It was a symbolic scene that revealed the reason why manager Kim Seung-gi said, “This series is not easy” before the game.

43-31, Hyundai Mobis lead by 12 points. Instead of a mismatch under the goal, Hyundai Mobis attacked Carrot with unexpected transitions and fearless 3-pointers, and Carrot felt the absence of ace Seong-Hyun Jeon in the first half. 43-31, Hyundai Mobis lead by 12 points.

▶3rd Quarter = Complex reasons for Carrot’s sluggish 3-point shot

Choi Jin-soo of Hyundai Mobis was the energizer of the 2nd quarter. He stole Kim Gang-sun’s ball and helped Seo Myung-jin’s layup with an exquisite assist pass. It also meant that he effectively broke Carrot’s pressure. Choi Jin-soo’s three stores exploded.

Prim is double teamed. However, Seo Myeong-jin’s sharp cut-in. He even earned a foul from Jung-Hyun Lee, who was playing with him in the regular season, and played a 3-point basket count. It went up to 16 points.

▶4th Quarter = Myung-Jin Seo, Jeong-Hyun Lee’s ‘opponent’

Overall, Seo Myung-Jin is very impressive. He went straight to the pros after graduating from high school.

Last year, he was compared to Lee Jung-hyun, the biggest college fish. He was miserably beaten in a head-to-head confrontation. Compared to his good technique, Seo Myung-jin’s slow speed and lack of spirit were cited as weaknesses.

Lee Jung-hyun overwhelms Seo Myung-jin in power and technique. Carrot became the key reason for establishing himself as the natural enemy of Hyundai Mobis in the regular league.

However, Seo Myung-jin became more solid as he played games this season. I developed guts and gained power. Seo Myung-jin, who struggled under Carrot’s pressure, gained the strength to endure in the first leg of the semifinals. Before the game, coach Kim Seung-gi said, “Hyundai Mobis’ young players, such as Seo Myung-jin, have grown.” The specific performance of ‘I grew up’ was in this aspect. In particular, the symbolic scene he left with 1 minute and 16 seconds left in the third quarter.

Carrot is a surprise double team from the outskirts. However, Seo Myung-jin gave an exquisite skip pass while curling for a long time. In the end, it was connected to Shin Min-seok’s 3 stores. Carrot had to touch the weak link of Hyundai Mobis with a surprise trap in defense, but this part did not work. It has to do with the growth of Seo Myung-jin.

Carrot had a full-court press at the beginning of the fourth quarter. An inevitable choice for Carrot, who has to create variables. However, Hyundai Mobis did not suffer.

After reorganizing the line, Carrot pursued little by little as Lee Jung-hyun’s breakthrough under the goal and a 2-on-2 attack worked. The defense still has full-court press. They chased up to 12 points. Lawson was removed and Allegy was added, but Carrot’s airborne organization was still solid. There was an issue with the KBL subscription fee, but in terms of performance alone, Carrot was a team that was well qualified to advance to the 6th round.

However, Seo Myung-jin’s 3-pointer and Seo Myung-jin’s pass that broke through the pressure defense were connected by Ham Ji-hoon with a bottom-of-the-goal shot. 12-15 point difference between offense and defense.

Lee Jung-Hyun, with a graceful Euro step, shot below the goal, with a 10-point gap. He scored an 8-point lead by making a foul free throw. In the fourth quarter, Lee Jung-hyun started to move. At this time, it was piled up in Seo Myung-jin’s momentary trap, but again, Ham Ji-hoon passed the kill. Prim’s 1v1 post-up was successful.

With 2 minutes and 54 seconds remaining, 81-69, a 12-point lead. It was, in fact, the moment the game ended. From the middle of the 4th quarter, Lee Jung-hyun exploded the score that manager Kim Seung-gi wanted. However, Seo Myung-jin’s response was not easy.

One point to watch in the second match was added. Seo Myung-jin vs Lee Jung-hyun.
