DB failed to smile despite the performances of Didrick Lawson (202cm, F) and Lee Sun-bano (185cm, G).
Wonju DB lost 82-90 against Suwon KT in the third round of the 2023-2024 Jeonggwanjang Professional Basketball at Wonju Gymnasium on the 17th. The DB season record, which fell into its first consecutive loss of the season, is 18 wins and 5 losses. On the day, it was chased by 1.5 games behind second-ranked Changwon LG, which overpowered Seoul Samsung.
DB was having an overwhelming season as it had its first consecutive loss due to its loss. It finished the first round with nine wins and one loss, and the second round with seven wins and two losses.
The DB has added Albano, who showed solid performance in the 2022-2023 season, Kim Jong-kyu (207 cm, C) and Kang Sang-jae (200 cm, F), and Lawson, who spearheaded the “Day One in Goyang,” to the KBL’s top big man duo. The DB has built a stronghold in the DB just as it did when Kim Ju-sung was active as DB manager. Kim is actively utilizing the triple post that uses Kang as the No. 3 player.
Lawson’s high basketball intelligence is the key to the DB triple post. Lawson makes up for his inferiority in athletic ability and physical conditions with his excellent shooting and assist ability. He can play as a ball handler in a match, and can derive various offensive options from the players around him.
Also, the existence of Kim Jong-gyu and Kang Sang-jae cannot be ignored. Kim Jong-gyu, who has been under the basket for a long time as a member of the Korean national team, identifies weaknesses in Lawson’s defense. He is a top-class big man who can run while defending heavy foreign players in transition situations. Kang boasts high basketball intelligence like Lawson. He has accurate shooting capabilities. With his outstanding mobility, he can play the role of trailer and attack deployment in fast attack situations.
There are also a number of players who are like salt hidden by the splendor of Triple Post and Albano. Kim Young-hyun (186 cm, G), Choi Seung-wook (193 cm, F), and Park In-woong (190 cm, F) are committed to each and every ball. Doo Kyung-min (184 cm, G) and Yoo Hyun-joon (178 cm, G), who recovered from injury, are also coming back to play their roles.
However, DB failed to show leadership in the game. It exposed loopholes to daredevil KT players.
It was DB that gave KT 16 offensive rebounds. DB allowed 22 points to KT only through second chances. It hurt to allow 22 offensive rebounds. DB’s quick attack scores based on solid defense have decreased. DB posted only four points, 7.8 fewer than the average, through fast attack in the game.
Lawson and Albano’s attacks have also declined. Lawson and Albano combined for 45 points with a field pitching success rate of 50 percent, but their power declined. DB only posted 16 assists, five fewer than the average for the game. Lawson (4.8 assists on average) and Albano (7.5 assists on average) recorded about three fewer assists than average.
Kang Sang-jae, who is displaying fighting spirit in his mask due to a broken nose, finished the entire 40 minutes with nine points, three rebounds, and four assists. Kim Jong-kyu also failed to prevent his loss by falling into foul trouble early in the third quarter. 랭크카지노
DB must have learned a lot of lessons from the game. The reason for taking the lead was not that each one shone.
It was DB, which has been playing basketball represented by solid defense and organic attack flow. Will the whip of head coach Kim Joo-sung, who pointed out the team’s attitude at the press conference, be able to re-arm the DB.
