Professional basketball KCC advances to the championship game

KCC, the professional basketball team, became the first team in the fifth place to grab the No. 1 DB in the regular league and advance to the championship match

Professional basketball’s Busan KCC won the No. 1 team in the regular league and advanced to the championship game for the first time as a fifth-place team in the regular league.
KCC defeated DB 80-63 in the fourth round of the 2023-2024 Professional Basketball semifinal playoff (PO) held at Sajik Gymnasium in Busan on the 21st.

KCC, which recorded a total of 3 wins and 1 loss in the series in the semifinal PO of 3 wins out of 5, succeeded in advancing to the championship for the 11th time in three years since the 2020-2021 season (quasi-win).
In particular, KCC also wrote the record of being the first fifth-ranked team in the professional basketball regular league to reach the championship match.

KCC, which was called “Super Team” by building a brilliant lineup including Heo Woong, Choi Jun-yong, Ra Gun-ah, Song Kyo-chang and Lee Seung-hyun, defeated Seoul SK with three consecutive wins in the semifinal PO, and beat even the regular league’s No. 1 DB in the semifinal PO.

KCC’s Jeon Chang-jin’s personal career PO 50 wins (43 losses)
KCC manager Jeon Chang-jin surpassed 50 wins (43 losses) in his personal career with the victory.

Jeon is the second-most wins ever after Yoo Jae-hak, the former Ulsan Hyundai Mobis coach (58 wins and 50 losses).

KCC will challenge to become the champion for the first time in 13 years and the sixth time in his career since the 2010-2011 season in the championship game to be held from the 27th.
The other semifinal PO, where KCC’s opponent will be decided, is still in progress.

Changwon LG, the second-ranked team in the regular league, is ahead of Game 4 on the 22nd with a 2-1 lead over third-ranked Suwon kt.
DB went straight to the semifinal PO with Lee Sun-Bano and Didrick Lawson, who were named MVP at home and abroad this season, and Kang Sang-jae and Kim Jong-kyu played evenly, but they ended the season without reaching the championship.

KCC Laganah played three times in the first quarter
The first quarter was a stage for KCC Laganah.

Ra Gun-ah, who widened the gap with a jump shot after blocking DB Kim Young-hyun’s two-point shot attempt with 1:44 left in the quarter when KCC was leading 17-15, roared by clearing the opponent Kim Jong-kyu’s shot before 42.5 seconds.

Just before the end of the first quarter, Deedrick Lawson’s three-point shot also showed Ra Gun-ah’s block, and KCC had a 21-15 advantage.
In the second quarter that followed, Alize DeShawn Johnson, who was put in place of Ra Gun-ah in the middle, flew.

Johnson scored 10 points in the second quarter, more than half of the team’s 17 points, and took the lead in finishing the first half with KCC leading 38-32, with three consecutive points making it 29-24 before the end of the second quarter and 32-26 before 3:48 before the end of the second quarter.

While DB rarely scored for about four minutes since the start of the second half, KCC ran away 48-32, scoring 10 points, including Ra Gun-ah and Choi Jun-yong’s outer shots.
At the end of the third quarter, KCC led 55-44.

DB, which had been dragged around by Lee Sun-Bano and Didrick Lawson, the domestic and foreign MVP of 토토사이트 with only 8 points and 7 points respectively until the third quarter, was in a more difficult situation as Kim Jong-kyu, one of the pillars of “acidity,” stepped down with 5 fouls when the fourth quarter was more than 8 minutes left.

Since then, Lawson and Albano’s outer guns have begun to explode little by little, but KCC, with Huh Woong’s performance at the forefront, did not lose ground in momentum.
Ra Gun-ah’s three-run shot, which opened 75-61 one minute and 36 seconds before the end, sealed it.

Ra Gun-ah scored 17 points and 17 rebounds, including three 3-pointers, to make double-doubles in all four semifinal PO games, and took the lead in advancing to the championship with six block shots on the day.
Song Kyo-chang and Heo Woong added 14 points, and Choi Jun-yong and Johnson added 10 points each to show off the prowess of the “super team.”

In the DB, Lawson fought hard with 16 points and 8 rebounds, and Albano with 14 points and 5 rebounds.
