Seoul Samsung, the lowest in professional basketball, ended its 5-game losing streak against Wonju DB with even 5 players scoring double-digit points and superiority in supply.
Samsung won 83-77 in the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball regular league DB and home game held at Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium in Seoul on the 13th.
With this, Samsung won the confrontation with DB after 346 days last year.
Samsung, who won 89-76 against DB on March 4 last year, ended the 2021-2022 season by losing 75-82 on the 26th of that month, and lost 4 times this season.
In particular, in the 2nd round (62-65), 3rd round (79-80), and 4th round (82-85), all of them lost by less than 3 points, so it was very regrettable.
Samsung, which won its first win after 5 matches this season, was unable to get out of the bottom 10th place (12 wins, 28 losses).
They had to be satisfied with narrowing the gap with 9th place Daegu Korea Gas Corporation (13-27) to one game. 메이저놀이터
On the other hand, DB (16-24), which suffered 4 consecutive losses, was one step away from 6th place, the final line for advancing to the playoffs (PO).
It is one and a half games behind Suwon kt (18-23), currently in sixth place.
Leading 44-36 in the first half, Samsung dedicated a series of fast-breaking layups to Choi Seung-wook at the beginning of the third quarter, allowing the score to be tied 46-46 6:30 before the end of the quarter.
Then Lee Jung-hyun acted as a solver, scored 4 points, delivered 2 assists and ran away with a 7-point lead, and Kim Seung-won, who joined through a trade from Seoul SK, hit a mid-range shot at the end of the quarter and made a 9-point gap.
DB, trailing by 57-65 7 minutes before the end of the game, gave away a free throw to Philippine player Lee Seon Albano for an unsportsmanlike foul (U-foul), and Kim Seung-won allowed another mid-range shot, leading to a 12-point lead.
Samsung’s Lee Ho-hyun’s difficult mid-range shot at Albano’s defense also split the rim, and Anthony Moss also scored free throws with active under-the-goal attacks, widening the gap to 17 points four minutes before the end.
DB applied strong pressure throughout the last court and caught up fiercely with 77-81 5.7 seconds before the end, but could not turn the game around.
In Samsung, Dallal Willis (18 points), Lee Jeong-hyeon (15 points), Moss, Shin Dong-hyuk (above 13 points), and Lee Ho-hyun (10 points) scored double digits and played an active role evenly.
