Thanks to Lee Jung-hyun and Lawson’s performance, Carrot won the match.

Goyang Carrot won 89-75 against Anang KGC in the second leg of the 2022-2023 professional basketball quarterfinal playoff held at Anyang Indoor Gymnasium on the 15th. It was Carrot who made the series start by winning the game that day.

Carrot was newly created this season. Although he was chosen as the weakest player, he caused a sensation by showing off archery and basketball under the direction of coach Kim Seung-gi. There were problems outside the club, but they advanced to the playoffs by finishing 5th.

Carrot’s blast continued in the playoffs in the 6th round. Jeon Seong-hyeon (187cm, F) was unable to play at the beginning of the series. Game 2 was won, but games 1 and 3 were lost and pushed back to a 1-2 situation. However, Jeon Seong-hyun showed his fighting spirit and went to the stadium, and other players responded.

At the center were Lee Jung-hyun (187cm, G) and Didric Lawson (202cm, F). Lee Jung-hyun played a big role in the playoffs in the 6th round, averaging 24 points and 2.8 assists. In the second game, it was Lee Jung-hyun who played the ‘game of life’ by scoring 34 points. Lawson also continued his monstrous performance, averaging 25.4 points, 13.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists.

However, the two players were sluggish in the first leg of the playoffs in the quarterfinals. As the team fell behind, manager Kim also gave the two players a break메이저놀이터. Lawson only played 20 minutes and Lee Jung-hyun only 16 minutes.

In response, director Kim said, “(Lee) Jung-hyeon and Lawson must have been very tired. So he gave it a break. If I tried to catch up and lost, it seemed like it would have an impact on the next game as well. Now, from the second match, (former) Seonghyun comes out as a starter. We are going to have an all-out war,” he said, explaining the reason for adjusting the playing time of the two players.

And Lee Jung-hyun and Lawson, who received ample rest in the first game, dominated the second game. The player who dominated the first quarter was Lawson. Carrot gave up 30 points to his opponent in the first quarter. Rather than Carrot’s defense being bad, KGC’s offense was too good.

However, Carrot’s firepower was not pushed back. The 3-point shot success rate was 30% (3/10), but Lawson scored both inside and outside. He scored 13 points alone and made an equal match with KGC.

It was also Lawson who scored Carrot’s first goal in the second quarter. He made a 3-point shot. In addition, Lee Jung-hyun also added a 3-point shot. Carrot, who scored 6 points in a row, turned around.

From then on, it was Lee Jung-hyun’s ‘one-man show’. In particular, at the end of the quarter, he scored all 6 out of 8 points with his own hand. It broke the opponent’s concentrated defense. He drove in 11 points in the second quarter alone. Thanks to Lee Jung-hyun’s performance, Carrot finished the first half with a score of 46-42.

Lee Jung-hyun’s performance continued in the third quarter. He scored consecutive points early in the third quarter with a three-pointer and a free throw. He also received Kim Jin-yu’s pass and scored a fast break, and took the ball directly from Oh Se-geun to score a fast break. Later, he also made a pull-up 3-pointer.

Carrot gave off the atmosphere at the beginning of the third quarter, but Lee Jung-hyun’s performance got the flow back. In addition, Lawson’s extra point was added to widen the score gap to double digits. Until the end, Lee Jung-hyun’s performance continued. Carrot finished the third quarter with a score of 72-60. During the process, Lee Jung-hyun dominated the game with 17 points and 3 steals.

Even after that, Carrot was driven. Han Ho-bin (180cm, G), who was somewhat quiet, posted two 3-pointers only in the 4th quarter. In addition, Jeon Seong-hyun also scored a goal that broke the flow of the opponent. He conceded a point to Spellman, but the score widened further. And it was Carrot who won the game while keeping the remaining time.

The first contributor to Carrot’s victory was Lee Jung-hyun. He dominated the 2nd and 3rd quarters. His final grades were 32 points and 5 steals. On top of that, Lawson also did his part well enough. They scored 11 points in the first quarter. He showed off his versatility and recorded 24 points, 15 rebounds and 5 assists.

After the game, Kim Seung-gi, coach of Carrot, said, “I think I will die, but I don’t. (laugh) It’s not a carrot, it’s a ttuk. I will never fall down.” And the players who held the center were Lee Jung-hyun and Lawson. With the two players in good health, Carrot will not collapse easily.
