“My hands are still shaking.”
Kim Seung-gi (51), coach of KBL Goyang Carrot, said, “After the game was over, the afterglow remained. Because it was such a dramatic come-from-behind victory.
Carrot won 84-82 in an away match against Hyundai Mobis in the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball Round 5 held at Dongchun Gymnasium in Ulsan on the 4th. Carrot, who won the game that day, caught up with 4th place Seoul SK by one game.
Prior to the game, Carrot was on a four-game winning streak against Hyundai Mobis this season without losing a game. In particular, in the first confrontation on November 6 last year, they won 112-88. There was also a way to build confidence in Hyundai Mobis먹튀검증 .
However, director Kim Seung-gi calmly said, “This time it won’t work.” In particular, forward Choi Hyeon-min (33), who recently suffered an ankle injury, had a big gap. He explained, “Hyunmin was diagnosed in 3 weeks and will return in March.” Also, the lack of stamina of guard Lee Jung-hyeon (24) was a hindrance.
As for the season ranking, Hyundai Mobis ranked third with 22 wins and 14 losses before the game, while Carrot, who caused a sensation in the beginning, was ranked fifth with 19 wins and 18 losses. Fortunately, there were not many rides by 3.5 games, but it was difficult to overturn easily.
The game started, and Carrot had the upper hand in the beginning. Carrot, who took an 11-point lead 3 minutes into the game, took the lead right before the end of the first half. However, as Hyundai Mobis Ronjay Avarientos’ 3-point turnaround burst, Carrot finished the first half with a score of 36-38.
Then, in the third quarter, a similar flow flowed, and after a close game of biting and biting, the game could not be decided until the end of the game. In the 4th quarter, when they were trailing 68-71, Carrot succeeded in reversing as Didric Lawson scored consecutively, and Jeon Seong-hyun’s 3 points came back to life. However, Hyundai Mobis made a comeback with Lee Woo-seok’s 3-point shot 7 seconds before the end of the game. It looked like the game would end like this.
Seizing the last chance to attack, Carrot attempted a 3-point shot from the corner by Cho Han-jin, but was unsuccessful. However, Lawson, who won the rebound at this time, succeeded in a dramatic mid-range shot with 0.5 seconds left. He then made a thrilling come-from-behind victory by putting in a free throw.
“It was thrilling,” Lawson said after the match. “I think I need to catch the rebound and put it in when I throw it,” he said. He tried to miss the last free throw on purpose, but he nodded at the word that he went in and responded with a ‘thumbs up’ about his condition.
The command tower went back and forth between heaven and hell. Manager Kim Seung-gi looked back on the situation where he missed the last three-point shot and got a rebound to score, saying, “I’ve never won anything like that, but I won by scoring a goal.” “I thought (Cho Han-jin’s shot) went to a ridiculous place,” he said, “I tried to go in when it was over, but I was surprised.”
