The 7th round of the champ in 14 years, Ginseng Corporation-SK ‘Let’s finish it now’
- on May 07, 2023
Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation and Seoul SK are fighting for the throne of professional basketball.
Ginseng Corporation and SK will face each other with 3 wins and 3 losses in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Men’s Championship Match (4 wins from 7 matches), and will play the last 7 games at Anyang Gymnasium in Gyeonggi-do at 6 pm on the 7th.
It is the first time in 14 years since the 2008-2009 season that the championship match will be held until Game 7. The process of getting here is also dramatic. SK won the first game and succeeded in overpowering the baseline, but Ginseng Corporation succeeded in reversing by winning the second and third games. However, this time, SK turned around again by winning the 4th and 5th games.
SK, which took a lead with 3 wins and 2 losses, ran away by more than 15 points in the second half of the 6th game and was on the verge of winning the championship, but Ginseng Corporation won the 7th game by winning a miraculous come-from-behind victory. The popularity of professional basketball is also reviving as the spectators are filled up every time a game is held as if in response to a great game.
Ginseng Corporation, which survived the brink, has an advantage in the 7th battle?
Compared to Ginseng Corporation, SK has a thin player base and even Choi Jun-yong was injured due to an injury.
Ginseng Corporation, which was driven to the edge of the cliff in the 6th game, succeeded in reversing with the attack of Darryl Monroe, who was replaced. On the other hand, SK coach Jeon Hee-cheol, who used to use irregularities throughout the championship match, suffered a painful come-from-behind defeat as the ample lead turned poison and he missed the opportunity to change tactics.
As we have shown so far, Ginseng Corporation’s strength is its abundant player resources. Every time I was hit by SK’s irregularities, I found a breakthrough by replacing players. When Omari Spellman’s breakthrough under the goal was blocked, Oh Se-geun took the place or hired Monroe, who had excellent skills. In addition, three guards, Byun Jun-hyung, Bae Byung-jun, and Lens Abando, were put in at the same time to break down SK’s regional defense.
In particular, Monroe seems to have played an ordinary role in the championship game with an average of 7.8 points and 3.4 rebounds per game, but became a ‘game changer’ by leading a come-from-behind victory in the 3rd and 6th games where Ginseng Corporation was on the verge of defeat. Also, the fact that Byun Jun-hyung, who had been sluggish throughout the championship match, woke up at the end of the 6th game is a great boon for Ginseng Corporation.
SK Kim Seon-hyeong-Warney’s ‘Basketball’… Will it work again?
On the other hand, SK’s MVP Kim Seon-hyung is showing off his formidable firepower with an average of 15.2 points and 8.3 assists in the championship match. Also, Jameel Warney is also playing a reliable role with 19.8 points and 11.3 rebounds.토스카지노
However, the weakness is that the dependence on the two players is too great. SK removed Kim Seon-hyung and Warney from the starting list to save their stamina, and then put them in 7-8 minutes after the start of the game. It was ‘super strong’ in the championship match, where victory or defeat could be decided in just one minute. For SK, the key is how to maximize the offensive power of the two players in the 7th game by breaking through the intensive check of the Ginseng Corporation.
The two teams clashed in the championship match last season as well. At that time, SK won the championship with 4 wins and 1 loss. However, Ginseng Corporation is seeking revenge by advancing to the playoffs this season as the No. 1 player in the regular league.
With the last game 7, professional basketball this season ends the 6-month campaign. Attention is focusing on whether Ginseng Corporation will succeed in winning the come-from-behind championship and achieve the feat of winning the regular league-champion match, or whether SK, which has risen to third place in the regular league, will overturn the rankings and succeed in winning for the second consecutive season.
