* SK leads in all cases
The reason why SK took the 4th game. This is because the 3-2 modified area defense and anti-personnel defense were utilized at the right timing. How to use it was like this. After pushing Spellman and Lens Abando (186cm, F) out of the court with a 3-2 variation regional defense, he used an interpersonal defense. When KGC Ginseng Corporation reintroduces Spellman and Abando, SK uses 3-2 variant area defense again. SK’s defensive change gave KGC Ginseng Corporation confusion.
SK coach Jeon Hee-chul, who had fun with the defensive changes, said right before the 5th game, “I will change the defense from time to time. You must not know when to use the 3-2 variation area defense or when to use the anti-personnel defense. And when using the 3-2 modified area defense, it is important to push quickly after successful defense,” he said, referring to ‘changes in defense according to the situation’.
As soon as the 2nd quarter started, SK used a 3-2 variation of regional defense. KGC Ginseng Corporation’s first five field goals (2 points: 3, 3 points: 2) in the 2nd quarter were turned to nothing. Spellman and Abando, who are weak in area defense, were kicked out of the court.
When Spellman and Abando returned, SK utilized a mix of anti-personnel defense and 3-2 variant area defense. This defensive change gave KGC Ginseng Corporation another confusion. The first half ended with a double-digit scoreline. It was the second time in this series that both teams finished the first half with a double-digit score difference.
