“I will actively use it” KGC’s secret weapon that hides its toenails in the 4th lecture, will the championship match be any different?

Director Kim Sang-sik is looking forward to Abando’s performance.

Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation won 89-61 in the match against the Goyang Carrot Jumpers in the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Pro Basketball Quarterfinal Playoff Game 4 held at the Goyang Gymnasium on the 19th. 

KGC seemed to be shaking a bit after giving up the second game. However, they caught the 3rd and 4th games and succeeded in advancing to the championship match. He also accomplished the great feat of advancing to the championship match for three consecutive years. The positive thing is that they won a complete victory in the 4th game, and the concerns about their performance have been erased to some extent.

KGC, who happily entered the championship match, faced SK. The two teams are emerging as the most interesting rivalries in the KBL, with SK winning 4-1 in the championship match last season. 

Despite the absence of Choi Jun-yong’s injury, SK is showing a fierce pace, winning 15 consecutive wins from the end of the regular season to the semifinals. Although KGC won the wire-to-wire championship in the regular season, as 

KGC played in the semi-finals, the players performed evenly, regardless of whether they were starting pitchers or benches. In the midst of that, there was a player who didn’t particularly stand out. It was Lens Abando, a Filipino Asian quarter player.

Abando, who stepped on Korean soil for the first time this season, showed a powerful appearance by overcoming the sluggishness in the beginning and adapting to the league. Abando, who posted an average of 18 minutes and 38 seconds in the regular league and posted 9.0 points, has already proven his explosive power by scoring 20 or more points five times. 

In the semifinal playoffs against Carrot, such Abando only averaged 0.5 points after his playing time was greatly reduced. Manager Kim Sang-shik메이저놀이터, who explained that Abando showed a weak performance against Carrot in the regular league, considered organized defense and more favored Bae Byung-jun and Jeong Jun-won. The two players showed great success in the first and fourth games, respectively, and lived up to the coach’s trust.

The series against SK is different from the semifinal playoffs. Abando is the only player at KGC who gets excited whenever he encounters only SK. The average score against SK in the regular league reaches a whopping 20.4 points. After his KBL debut, he also set his personal record for most points (30 points) before SK. Coach Jeon Hee-chul is even showing his caution against Abando, who is becoming stronger against SK. 

Abando, who hid his claws in the semifinals, will be more important in the championship match. If Abando survives, KGC can easily run the series. In defense, he may show weakness than other players, but he has the skills to make up for it in attack. The problem is that Abando’s performance in the semifinal playoffs was not very good. 

After the semifinals, coach Kim Sang-sik said, “I have an idea to use Lens Abando for a long time against SK. I reduced my playing time because my performance was so jagged before Carrot, but I discussed it with the coaches and I plan to actively use it because it was good against SK. “he said.

The long journey in which 10 teams participated is now coming to an end, leaving only two teams left. Can SK killer Abando make the championship match his stage?
