KGC was properly hit by SK’s 3-2 drop zone.
Anyang KGC lost 91-100 in the 4th game of the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Championship match held at Jamsil Student Gymnasium on the 1st. With the defeat on this day, the series was tied at 2 wins and 2 losses, and we had to play the 5th game on the road with a burden.
The biggest loss was that we failed to attack SK’s 3-2 drop zone effectively. In the 2010s, the 3-2 drop zone was SK’s representative weapon. With tall forwards such as Choi Jun-yong, Ahn Young-jun, and Aaron Haynes, they gave fear to the opposing teams.
Although he temporarily disappeared this season due to Choi Jun-yong’s injury and Ahn Young-jun’s enlistment in the military, he took out the 3-2 drop zone card in the most important championship game. Choi Boo-kyung and Jamil Warney were in charge of the back line, and Kim Seon-hyung, Choi Won-hyuk and Choi Seong-won took turns positioning on both wings. Heo Il-yeong was placed in the middle of the most important front line 메이저사이트.
Without Choi Jun-yong and Ahn Young-jun, SK’s 3-2 drop zone was obviously weak. With Bae Byung-Jun and Park Ji-Hoon at the forefront, KGC fired 3-pointers one after another from both corners, the biggest weakness of the 3-2 drop zone. The shooting feel of the rest of the players was also good, and as a result, they made a whopping 14 3-pointers. The success rate was a whopping 42% (14/33).
The outside shot exploded, but KGC did not completely target SK’s 3-2 drop zone. Except for the 3-point shot, the offense has stagnated overall. There was a clear look of bewilderment at SK’s sudden 3-2 drop zone. Byun Jun-hyung and Park Ji-hoon, who were not orthodox point guards, struggled. Oh Se-geun and Daryl Monroe, who had the ability to feed, were located on the top and released attacks, but it was not enough.
To target the 3-2 drop zone, KGC employed Bae Byung-jun and Lens Abando, both of whom have strengths in outside shooting, instead of Moon Seong-gon. Then, Kim Seon-hyeong, who should be most vigilant, survived. Freed from Moon Seong-gon’s defense, Kim Seon-hyung recorded a double-double with 23 points, 5 rebounds and 10 assists, giving KGC the pain of defeat.
As a result, KGC failed to attack SK’s 3-2 drop zone. If the 3-point shot hadn’t been blown, it is expected that the score difference between the two teams would have widened further. That much KGC struggled in the attack.
Even in the 5th game, SK seems to use the 3-2 drop zone appropriately. It can be another interesting point to watch in Game 5 to see if KGC can find a way to destroy the 3-2 drop zone during the day.
