Recently, DB had fun with defense. In all of the previous three games, they had conceded 50 points or more. During this period, it ranked at least 1st in average points allowed (58.0 points), 2-point shots allowed (15.0), and assists allowed (13.0), and was at least 2nd in 3-point shots allowed (5.3). DB was able to win three games in a row thanks to the strength of the defense.
Against KT, DB’s defense shone once again. Throughout the first half, except for Ha Yoon-gi’s one-on-one attack, he completely blocked almost all of KT’s attack options. Blocked by DB’s defense, KT attempted 7 3-point shots and only succeeded in 1, and only 10 out of 29 field shots in the first half broke the rim. The field goal success rate was only 34.0%.
On offense, Davis and Albano were strong. They stood at the forefront of the attack, scoring 16 and 12 points in the first half alone. Here, Kang Sang-jae and Kim Jong-gyu succeeded in attacking in succession. DB, who added Jung Ho-young’s Altoran-like score, led the first half by 49-28.
However, in the second half, he suddenly lost his concentration and made a lot of turnovers. This led to KT’s quick attack, and Yang Hong-seok and Choi Seong-mo scored one after another. Even so, DB was not shaken. Following Kang Sang-jae, Albano made consecutive 3-pointers, ending the third quarter with a score of 62-47.
The game did not change in the 4th quarter. In the DB, Kim Jong-kyu continued to accumulate points with a mid-range shot followed by a dunk shot. After that, he conceded consecutive runs to Yang Hong-seok and Jarrod Jones, but it did not affect the game. Jeong Ho-young’s consecutive 3-point shots seized the victory, and the game was finished without losing concentration until the end.
On the other hand, KT struggled with Ha Yoon-gi (22 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists), but it was not enough alone. With the loss on this day, they fell into a 4-game losing streak (20-31), and the playoff elimination was confirmed regardless of the results of the remaining games.
