Park Kyung-sang made coach Jeon Chang-jin smile.
Jeonju KCC won 92-80 in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Anyang KGC match held at Anyang Gymnasium on the 15th. They fell behind KGC until the first half, but in the second half, Heo Ung (22 points, 2 rebounds, 4 assists) and Jung Chang-young (18 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists) won the game from behind.
The spotlight was focused on Heo Ung and Jung Chang-young, but there was a hidden credit for KCC’s victory that day. That is Park Kyung-sang. Park Gyeong-sang recorded 5 points, 1 rebound and 2 assists in 18 minutes and 16 seconds. Although his performance was not outstanding, Park Kyung-sang’s true value was revealed in defense. KGC’s ace Byun Jun-hyeong was tied up.
In the last two rounds of confrontation, KCC failed to block Byun Jun-hyung. Right before the end of the 4th quarter, he was hit with a winning shot and suffered a painful defeat at the end of a close match with 82-84. Byun Jun-hyung made a big success with 22 points, 4 rebounds and 6 assists, taking the lead in KGC’s victory.
Then, KCC coach Jeon Chang-jin took out the Park Gyeong-sang card. While Park Kyung-sang was on the court, he followed Byun Jun-hyeong like a leech. He was harassed with an active defense that did not even dare to foul. Blocked by Park Kyung-sang’s defense, Byun Jun-hyung recorded only 9 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists in 30 minutes and 27 seconds. He attempted 11 field goals, only succeeded in 4, and committed 3 turnovers. 메이저사이트
Park Kyung-sang also scored like Altoran in attack. At the beginning of the 4th quarter, he completed a 3-point play by getting a scoring foul with Byun Jun-hyung in front. 69-69, it was even more meaningful because it was an attack in which KCC took the lead again in a tie situation.
After the game, KCC coach Jeon Chang-jin said of Park Gyeong-sang, “In the last game, we lost because of Byun Jun-hyung, but (Park) Gyeong-sang played a very good defense. In the meantime, he couldn’t play many games, but he showed his will and fighting spirit in defense and became a great energizer for the team.”
KCC even prepared a plan B in case Byun Jun-hyung’s defense would not work. However, as Park Kyung-sang perfectly blocked Byun Jun-hyung, he was able to leave it for the remaining confrontation.
Manager Jeon Chang-jin said, “I didn’t make a second defense. He had a promise in case the first defense didn’t work, but he didn’t go there. I solved it in the front line, and (Lee) Seung-hyeon and (D) Geon-ah helped. Thanks to that, he was able to lower Byun Jun-hyung’s condition.”
