“It was like watching an NBA game.”
Anyang KGC won the away match against Jeonju KCC in the 4th round of SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball 2022-23 held at Jeonju Indoor Gymnasium on the 31st with a close score of 83-81 and achieved its second consecutive win of the season.
It would not be an exaggeration to say that this match was the best of the season. In particular, the showdown of Omari Spellman and Ronde Hollis Jefferson heated up the Jeonju Indoor Gymnasium.
Moon Seong-gon, who ‘intuitively’ witnessed the greatest showdown on the court, said, “It was like watching an NBA game.” “In fact, when I was put in 2 minutes before the end of the game, I decided, ‘Let’s not get in between them’ (laughs). He played with the idea of just rebounding,” he said.
He continued, “Actually, I couldn’t do it to the point where I wondered, ‘Can I do an interview? It seems like he is reflecting on his interview,” he said. It was a difficult victory,” he added.
KBL’s best defender, Moon Seong-gon, was put in to stop Heo Woong with about two minutes left in the game. And KGC coach Kim Sang-sik’s choice was right. KGC was able to defeat KCC thanks to the defense of Sung-Gon Moon, who did his best until the end.
Moon Seong-gon said, “I thought defense was what I could do today and contribute to the team. He thought that the coach believed in my defense 메이저놀이터 when he was put in at an important moment. He was able to focus more thanks to him.”
Until last season, KGC often allowed a come-from-behind loss even after winning big. In short-term matches such as the playoffs, he showed great performance, but there were as many ups and downs as in the regular league. But this season is different. Most of the time you win in close combat situations.
Moon Seong-gon said, “Last season, there were cases where we won big and then lost. There were many games that collapsed and lost when it came to close matches,” he said. “I think we must catch a game like today. I, of course, all of our players think the same. If you lose a close game, you will have problems until the next game. It is the driving force behind victory.”
“If you win a game like this, you can become stronger. I have faith that if we go to the end, we can win. Also, if we go into short-term battles, we become stronger. It’s always been like that, and all the players are different (laughs). All of our players, including the captain (Yang Hee-jong), (Oh) Se-geun hyung, (Byun) Jun-hyung, and me. We will be stronger in the playoffs.”
