The 2022-2023 season professional basketball championship match (4 wins from 7 matches) will be held from the 25th with a confrontation between Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation, which ranks first in the regular league, and Seoul SK, which ranks third.
The two teams have recently established themselves as strong teams representing professional basketball.
They faced each other in the championship match last season, and also clashed in the finals of the East Asian Super League (EASL), an East Asian club competition held in Japan early last month.
In last year’s championship match, SK laughed with a record of 4 wins and 1 loss, and Ginseng Corporation won in the EASL final.
In the regular league, Ginseng Corporation recorded 37 wins and 17 losses, one win more than SK’s 36 wins and 18 losses.
However, this season, it is difficult to gauge the strength of the two teams based only on their regular league performance.
This is because SK, which was sluggish at the beginning of the season, started to rise from the middle and the second half and came up to 3rd place.
SK, who won 7 wins (2 losses) in the 5th round, won all the victories in the 6th round, and won both the 6th and 4th POs, and is on a 15-game winning streak.
On the other hand, Ginseng Corporation is evaluated for having solid basic power and maintaining it stably, such as winning the ‘Wire to Wire’, which keeps the lead from the beginning of the season to the end.
While Ginseng Corp., which swept both the regular league and EASL, agreed that it was basically excellent, experts were divided on the surprising rise that SK recently showed.
Ginseng Corporation lost to Goyang Carrot in the 2nd round of the semifinals PO and received a ‘preventive shot’.
The variable is, of course, the performance of SK Kim Seon-hyeong. His recent performance is better than last year’s championship match, when he was selected as PO MVP.
Kim Seon-hyung’s main skill, fast attack, starts when SK succeeds in defending and gets a rebound. As for Ginseng Corporation, it is necessary to control the rebound well, and on the contrary, for SK, forwards such as Choi Bu-kyung and Heo Il-young must face off in the rebound fight.
In Ginseng Corporation, it is worth looking forward to the fact that Carrot and Lens Abando, who were quiet in the semifinals, showed good performance against SK in the regular league. 토토사이트
Even without Choi Jun-yong, the recent atmosphere and organizational power stand out. Ginseng Corp. is said to be ranked high, but looking at the last minute and PO results of the regular league, SK has a steeper upward curve.
In particular, it seems to have given confidence to the players and coaches that they reversed all 2 games in which they were more than 10 points behind Jeonju KCC and PO in the 6th round.
Fighting foreign players is also important in PO.
SK’s Jamil Warney beats Ginseng Corporation’s Omari Spellman. While Spellman has been showing ups and downs recently, Warney has been playing a steady role, including the match.
I don’t think fitness issues matter. As the championship match is the last, both teams need to put in all their strength.
It is important how much power Warney exerts on Ginseng Corporation. This is because the proportion of Warnie in SK is greater than that of Spellman in Ginseng Corporation. Warney and Spellman are not easy to block each other due to their style, which has strengths both inside and outside.
Since both teams have exhausted their stamina in the PO, how to use the candidate players is also a variable. SK players, who started from the 6th PO, were seen struggling in the 3rd round of the 4th PO against Changwon LG, and Ginseng Corporation also played enough to play against Carrot in the 4th PO.
It is important to take the initiative early in the series. In terms of physical strength, Ginseng Corporation still has the upper hand, but it is because the momentum of SK, which has won 15 consecutive wins, is very good.
Lee Kyu-seop, commentator at SPOTV= It is unlikely to go until the 7th game, and we expect Ginseng Corp. to have a slight advantage. Choi Jun-yong’s vacancy in SK is inevitable before the Ginseng Corporation.It was the ‘blocking defense’ using Choi Jun-yong that made Ginseng Corporation struggle in the championship match last season. Choi Jun-yong alone was able to use various defenses, but this time there is none.
On the other hand, Ginseng Corporation has more defensive tactics and strategy cards than SK, led by Moon Seong-gon. Ginseng Corporation had the lowest number of assists allowed in each game in the regular league, which proves that the players’ one-on-one defense is excellent. It means the opponent couldn’t crack.
However, Spellman’s shot feeling is the variable. If the shot does not go in, the structure of Ginseng Corporation’s advantage will also change. As shown occasionally in the regular league, if the outskirts are stagnant, the series will be long.
