Jeonju KCC and Ulsan Hyundai Mobis will face off for the third time. KCC, which is on the rise with three consecutive wins, is aiming for the first win of the season against Hyundai Mobis.
Currently, the atmosphere at KCC is up. It is because he shook off the sluggishness at the beginning of the season and sprinted for 3 consecutive wins, raising the ranking to 7th place (8 wins, 11 losses). The teams defeated during the three-game winning streak were Suwon KT, Goyang Carrot, and Seoul SK. In the KT match, he showed the best performance of the season and won a complete victory, and caught Carrot at the top after a close match. In addition, with the return of Choi Jun-yong and Choi Seong-won, they even won the match against SK, which became stronger, and recharged their confidence.
During the winning streak, the one who stood out the most was the ace, Heo Woong. Heo Woong played an average of 32 minutes and 1 second in 3 games and showed a great performance with 23.3 points, 3.3 points and 5.7 assists. In particular, in the game against SK, he showed his resolve as a solver with a 3-point shot that decided the victory in the 4th quarter. KCC coach Jeon Chang-jin said, “As a star, he handled it well in a difficult situation. The heart seems to be fine. It felt so good beyond words.”
In order for KCC to win its first win of the season against Hyundai Mobis, Heo Woong’s performance is needed. KCC is recording an average of 7.4 3-pointers and 35.3% of 3-pointers this season. However, against Hyundai Mobis, the average 7.0 3-point shot success rate in 2 토토 games was low, with 30.4%. Heo Woong also fell short of expectations with an average of 12.5 points, 1.5 3-pointers and 3.5 assists. If Heo Woong continues the current pace, the outskirts of KCC will come alive and the game will be easier to solve.
On the other hand, Hyundai Mobis, which is recording a 2-game winning streak against KCC, must use its height advantage. Hyundai Mobis is averaging 38.2 rebounds this season. This is the number that corresponds to the number 1 out of 10 clubs. The rebound rate is also second (33.4) following Daegu Korea Gas Corporation (31.8). Simply put, the strongest team in the rebound fight this season is Hyundai Mobis.
The height of Hyundai Mobis became even stronger when it met KCC. He grabbed an average of 40.5 rebounds in two games against KCC. In the famous basketball cartoon ‘Slam Dunk’, there is a saying, “He who controls the rebound controls the game.” As in the previous two games, if Hyundai Mobis gains the upper hand in the rebound fight, the chances of winning can be further increased. The roles of Gage Prim, Jang Jae-seok, and Ham Ji-hoon under the goal are important.
