Today (4th), Jones, Yang Hong-seok and Ha Yoon-gi attacked well enough that Kim Dong-wook could rest.”
Suwon KT defeated Daegu Korea Gas Corporation 76-73 in the 안전놀이터 Basketball away game held at the Daegu Gymnasium on the 4th. KT, who won the first win in the 5th round, recorded 17 wins and 21 losses, rising one step to 6th place alone.

At this time, Ha Yun-ki and Choi Seong-mo scored again to go ahead. After that, he pulled out four mistakes from Murphy Holloway and approached a valuable victory.
KT coach Seo Dong-cheol said after the victory that day, “We won a valuable victory in every game, but on the away. It is fortunate that we won in an atmosphere that could stagnate,” he said. I prepared for such a defense not to repeat again, but I did a good job. I was able to play a good game because there was no difficulty inside,” he looked back on the game.
When asked about the overall game content, there were times when it went well and times when it was messy, coach Seo Dong-cheol said, “I saw it correctly. I think our team is like that. The play with ups and downs is the same, and the time to concentrate and the time to be cluttered are repeated.”
Head coach Seo Dong-cheol hoped that Lee Dae-sung would score fewer than 20 points before the game, but Lee Dae-sung scored 23 points that day.

Kim Dong-wook did not play even for a minute that day.
Manager Seo Dong-cheol said, “I tried to put more emphasis on defense. On offense, Yang Hong-seok and Jones were in good shape. Ha Yoon-gi plays without ups and downs. When using Kim Dong-wook, it is time to hope for the attack to be released when the attack is not released and the shot or flow is not good.” I rested comfortably,” he explained why he did not appoint Kim Dong-wook.
After running away with 75-71 at the end of the game, KT maintained an uneasy lead as it failed to score additional points. However, he laughed at the end by drawing out the gas corporation’s mistakes in a row.
Manager Seo Dong-cheol said, “I want to praise the defense a lot. The offense had its ups and downs, and concentration was shattered, but the defense was very good. In terms of concentration, I want to rate it very highly.”
