Lee Jeong-hyeon (24) wrote a drama that leads Carrot, the goyang in crisis, to the semi-final playoffs (PO).
Carrot won 77-71 in Ulsan Hyundai Mobis and PO in the 6th round on the 10th. Hyundai Mobis (4th) is a strong team that won 6 more regular season wins than Carrot (5th).
Carrott had a rough run ahead of basketball this spring. The parent company, Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering, went bankrupt, or the wages of the athletes and executives were delayed. The Korean Professional Basketball League (KBL) was unable to pay the remaining 1 billion won subscription fee on time, and was in danger of not participating in the PO even after finishing 5th. I barely paid the subscription fee and joined spring basketball, but there was a big gap without Jeon Seong-hyun. They lost both the first and third games to Hyundai Mobis, who were ahead in the regular league with 5 wins and 1 loss, and were driven to the edge of the cliff.
Drama was born at a dead end. Jeon Seong-hyun, who returned from the 4th game, added strength to the victory, and Lee Jung-hyun dominated the series in the 5th game. He recorded an average of 24 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.5 assists in the previous four games, and he scored 24 points on this day as well, becoming the vanguard of victory.
In the absence of Jeon Seong-hyun, Lee Jung-hyun was subject to Hyundai Mobis’ intensive check. In his second year, he skillfully overcame it. When Hyundai Mobis put on a small player due to a mismatch, they overcame it with a post-up, and when a big but slow player appeared, they quickly broke through. Before the defense approached from the outskirts, he added a step-back 3-point shot to completely defeat the Hyundai Mobis defense.
After the game, Lee Jung-hyun said, “Everyone said that we were weak and that this series would not work, but the players came together tightly. Until (former) Seong-hyun came, we endured with good performance, and when Seong-hyun came back, we received more strength. Game 5 I am really happy to be able to reach the semifinals after enduring until now.”
Regarding the opponent’s intensive check, Lee Jung-hyun said, “It was really hard and it was really fun. The opponent brought a lot of different defenses to stop me. I continued to study while watching the video to counter him. I really felt the direction for that in the 6th round,” he explained.
Although Lee Jung-hyun has already grown into a top-notch guard in the regular league, there were more scenes where he was scolded by coach Kim Seung-gi of Carrot at the time. This day was different. Director Kim praised, “Lee Jung-hyun made the PO for the quarterfinals.온라인바카라” Lee Jung-hyun said, “The coach doesn’t praise me very much. During the regular season, he sometimes praised me, but I didn’t do well in the next game, so the coach said, ‘I can’t praise you.’ I played really hard not to make them do it.
Carrot will meet Anyang KGC, the regular league champion, from the 13th. Carrot’s power is running low, but Lee Jung-hyun said he would not give up. He pledged, “As many people expect, I will hold on until the end without losing by a large score.”
